I just found out that GM Bobby Taboada of World Balintawak Arnis Escrima,Charlotte, North Carolina has been hospitalized for over one month through Virgil Cavada.  Allegedly Dan Inosanto asked Virgil to check in to it and he is.  I have an email out to Virgil and if I find out any more I will let everyone know what happened.

Giving Back to FMA

As Mataw Guro I feel that we should be giving back to those in FMA who are trying to teach FMA in other places so that FMA will still be taught to other someday. I went to the Big Island of Hawaii and visited the town of Kona-Kailua. I had inquired about anyone teaching Arnis still. I had heard that friend of mine who had taught Arnis had passed away.
