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. I found there was Karate club that within their system taught some basic defense against a stick or club. I made contact with the Chief Instructor. He was glad to host me for seminar on short notice.I spent about 3 hours with his school.  I did this at no cost or fee. I taught them basics of  Arnis along simple drills and games that teach you many of the skills. I gave the Chief Instructor a copy my book and his students bough my other copies from me. I was able to get togather with him again an share some more for about 4 hours. He had seen many things and had questions about who did what and why. I  showed him how to see how others do things so that he could learn by watching other Masters as well. Now he had good questions about why his dad had done certian moves. I was able explain it and now he is going to rebuilding the old family style with what he has learn from others including myself. I am glad to be a part of re-establishing Arnis on the Big Island of Hawaii on Kona side. This was important to me as my father-in-law who shared with me had come from and he had learned from others back before WW-2.
