Just to think of it, we do our own thing all the times, we don't associates with other FMA on the area. Well I am really want to take this "CHALLENGING TASK". I was talking to Kapatid Guro Roberto Torres that I would like to invite all FMA in Florida just for a day of fun "Gathering" Symposium to be able to reach out to them and give them my hearted support to the system that they teaching.
My first thought was, their are so many Martial Arts out there and majority of them support of each other, by way of tournament, seminar, symposium and propagation of their loving arts. Well, I would like to invite every single FMA instructors and practitioners to get together and a day of Training from various system for FREE, NO CHARGE, NO PAGA NI SENTIMO, just to compete in other Martial Arts business startegy.
I have been thinking about this for so long and the idea come about during the Sama-sama in Orlando with Sayoc Kali, Pambuan Arnis, Balintawak, Modern Arnis and Garimot Arnis back in 1996. I would like to continue this and reach out to those groups that want to participate for this event. I would like to try for a day and see what how much the support, remeber this is not Tournaments it's a day of friendly training to each other, maybe I can Spearhead this event the first times and hopefully other master will took the ownership of hosting the next one, or we can agree upon ending the Symposium till everyone get comfortable to the format, then we can make more concrete plans and do things to the FMA in General here in the State of Florida and out. We can set a tone to the rest of FMA community nationwide or even worldwide.
FORMAT: AGENDA FLORIDA FMA SYMPOSIUM ( KATIPUNAN 2009)
MEETING WITH INSTRUCTORS
ORIENTATION : Registration
FEE: Free for all
TRAINING: Depend of how many Instructor was involved, if their 8 system involved, then we can break it down to two instructor Classes to choose each Hour. And each hour of we gather in the center and have 15 minutes Demo of the next 2 Instructor to showcase their area of training to cover, so the practitioner can go ahead and choose which instructor to go and train for the next one hour.
For attendees will grant them with certificate of training with the signature of all instructor with no. Maybe we find a sponsor to give us few dollar to spend for materials and tools we need on this events (flyers, certificate and may be souvineers etc.) Well, when it become bigger and bigger then we can try to think other thing we can do to make it well attended.
