THE WSEF: GIVING CREDIT WHERE CREDIT IS DUE

The "World Serrada Escrima Federation" was founded upon the premise, and the principle's of giving recognition to all of those whom have been profoundly instrumental within the field of martial arts. Make no mistake about it; the "World Serrada Escrima Federation" is definitely one of FMA's most powerful leaders when it comes to giving much deserved recognition, and much deserved credit where credit is due; as well as unbiased acknowledgement to all of the many past & present Professor's, Grandmaster's, Master's, Sifu's and Guru's, whom are all an integral part of the sacred "Cadena de Mano" tradition. How is it possible for anyone to overlook the instrumental players that aided in one' own success, and in one' own accomplishments. It takes a unified team effort to build champions on any level of endeavor. We do not always get to pick and choose whom we want to train with, or whom we want to learn from. Sometimes situations, and circumstances do not always afford us the luxury of learning martial arts in the fashion that we would most prefer. But in whatever fashion; or various different ways we were inspired to take upon the journey of acquiring our sacred skills; we should always respect, and acknowledge the people, and the ways in which we learned these skills. Remember! "God makes it rain upon the good & the bad". Within the perspective of the "World Serrada Escrima Federation" we do not get to pick & choose who we want to recognize as the most prolific figures within the arena of martial arts. This is because we understand that all of the various players whether they were, or are minor, or are major players; are all a part of the "Holy Web" of martial artists. Is it really possible to separate the yin-from-the-yang? As the late GGM/Professor Gilbert Tenio once said "No one has a monopoly on Filipino martial arts". Therefore! based upon this premise, the "World Serrada Escrima Federation" will always continue to perpetuate other's true martial arts experiences, exercise profound understanding, exercise genuine brotherhood/sisterhood, and will always extend to other's a neutral platform by which everyone is welcome as long as they come in peace, and in "LOVE".

Highest Regards to All,

Grandmaster "D"/President

I totally agree with that premise of recognition because without meeting the people that you gain knowledge & wisdom from who would you be today ??? Therefore it is most important to pay homage in that way so that your students will show you the same respect! Respect is earned both ways student to teacher and teacher to student ! Great blog GM D ! Mahalo to you !
