Greetings Master Guro Wes Bennett,
your continued efforts & loyal dedication to the late Maha Guro Ted Lucaylucay is highly commendable. I had the great pleasure of meeting, training & sponsoring Maha Guro Lucaylucay back in 1983. Back then! I had been teaching an eclectic style of MA's for about (12)yrs. Ted not only further inspired me in my pursuit of excellence in the arts; but he also gave me his special permission to represent FMA under his personal authority. Today! Maha Guro Ted Lucaylucay is recognized as one of the top "WSEF Honorary Grandmaster's". May your endeavors in the field of martial arts continue to expand & grow in all ways fruitful. And may Ted's spirit continue to shine down upon you always.
Hey Wes , Do you know of many fellow Eskrimadors in the so Ill.area ? Would you be interested in getting a little gathering together ? Other than your students and a few people who have trained with us from time to time I really don't know many peoplearound but maybe we could get a little day of play going -Josh

Just so there is no confusion. Are group has separated From Tony Somera's group. Leo's 2 sons and most of the active instructors and graduates left and formed Bahala Na Multi-style/Original Giron Escrima. If this is not a conflict please stop by sometime!
Did you know that Ted Lucaylucay was the 3rd graduate of Bahala Na right after Inosanto and Bastillo?
If you ever come out to california please stop in Stockton to hang out and share styles!
