Hi  Sir Jessie,

How are you?  I am Weinz Belardo from Marikina City, originally from Ozamiz City. I am a fan of various martial arts. I am a healer and conduct Esoteric Workshop from time to time on how to awaken the Kundalini/Chi and the chakras for self-healing, bliss, peace and enlightenment.

While doing research through Google of our much forgotten traditional Filipino healing modalities yesterday, I come across your comment on an article/open forum on this interesting site Filipino Marital Arts Network. You've mentioned there that you've got and read books about our own Filipino healing methods. I am interested to read those books (which is not available in bookstores), specially about healing,that is "Crisol Del Mundo" and "Testamento ng Diez Mundoz"

Hope to meet you soon Sir Jessie so I could borrow ( or perhaps Xerox copy ) those two healing books.Have a great day. God bless Kababayan!

Thank you for your greetings.

The 1st Russian Arnis Caravan (Oct. 1- 14, 2011) covering the 4 major cities of Moscow, St. Petersburg, Ekaterinburg & Surgut was a great success, led by 2 respected international caliber instructors: GMs Rene Tongson (Classical Arnis Abaniko Tres Puntas) & Rodel Dagooc (DAS System Smoking Stick). The Caravan aims to foster cultural exchange and introduce a new wave of Classical Arnis to the Russian FMA practitioners. The 14- Day leg was organized by Guro Alexander Pisarkin of Filipino Combat System- Russia. The lessons has added a new concept of applications and drills on Combat Classical Arnis, Knife extreme cutting & stabs, intricate stick drills on Ponyo- Sungkiti, traps & pins in Dumog- Ipit, and many more techniques revealed. A popular TV Sport Talk Show also gave a wider view of Arnis, and chance for GMs Tongson & Dagooc to picture the Philippines as a new destination for Training & Holiday. Also, as an investment area. While we lack sleep due to time difference,we enjoyed the traditional Russian cuisines, we were over- fed! The Russians are great hosts.

Greetings My Brother From the P.I's,

I just wanted to thank you personally for your positive input & support on behalf of the "WSEF"... I've checked out your site & it's the "BOMB". Hopefully one day soon we will personally meet each other. I just wanted to personally let you know that the "BANQUET OF THE MASTERS" DVD is all set to go. Refer to the "BANQUET OF THE MASTERS" Blog on '' in order to place your orders. Also my son Anthone Jr. will be arriving in Manila early next year; he plays semi-pro Basketball in the U.S.A. & there in the Philippines. Perhaps you two can hook up in Manila...Anthone is also one of my most capable Master Escrimador Instructors. It will be good to hear from you again soon.
'Take Great Care'
Highest Regards
