Hey Joe ! thanks for the welcoming. I just moved back to Riverside few weeks ago w/ my fam. I just started Escrima with a friend of mine back where I used to live, he taught me some moves. Im still sorta new. I was just looking for schools in the area so I joined the site. I saw your guys' website, but it was in Perris, its a little too far for me, I dont drive yet =/ I'm still in HS, although I should ! dahil its my senior year. lol But hope to join you guys soon ! thanks !
