Wow this is so nostalgic. That vid did indeed bring it back... I think I was in a corner somewhere for support.

Your Welcome! yes, the people individuals who are demonstrating the Largo Mano art is (Master) PG Eddie his brother Guro Robert and nephew Dennis Lastra, he is the son of the late George Lastra. PG Eddie's older brother who taught the Saya's art to the family. The other two who are demonstrating is Guro Danilo Manuel and myself of Cacoy's Doce Pares but we still help promote the Saya-Lastra art of Arnis. The Saya art is not being demonstrated it is different in that it promotes a lot of footwork and body movement. The video footage that I have are some of the demontrations and workshops that Mang Eddie did during his promotion of the Samahan Ng Arnis Cultural arts demonstration group back in the early 90's.

Hello fellow Sayas Lastra Arnis Practitioners. I'm new to the brotherhood. Just a little information about my connection with the Sayas Lastra System. I started with PG Eddie back in 1994 when he was teaching at the university I was attending, The farthest phase I was able to reach was phase 3 which introduced the espada y daga training. I spent 2-3 years training with PG Eddie and I found his family system to be effective, efficient, and simple. Since then I've had little opportunity to return to complete his full curriculum. I plan in 2 years time to return to PG Eddie himself and request if he could resume his training with me. I've not kept in touch with him, but, I know he has his own website which reveals his other talent of playing guitar. Just google his name and the website should pop up. He's very talented. Well, for now, take care and keep training.

Thank you for the welcome. I had a chance to correspond with and ultimately meet Kuya Ed many years back. He is a former student of my instructor Manong Norlito Soriano. He is a great guy unfortunately we didn't get a chance to workout together as he was suffering from a shoulder injury at the time. I would love to be able to get together with him again and am sure Manong Soriano would love the visit. I would also welcome any of you in the area to come out and visit us in San Jose. If you are interested we train on Saturdays from 1 -???. Just drop me a line.

Please let us know when you are able to upload it to youtube. Hopefully I will be able to recall some of it. We did touch on the Espada y Daga, but it was just the basics. PG Eddie was so fluid he seemed untouchable.
