Our loyalties in Kombatan are to the Presas family. We have been direct students of GM Ernesto A. Presas since 1993. We now follow GM Ernesto G. Presas Jr. (Jan-Jan), and his group in the Philippines.
We (Kapatiran Mandirigma) are not a part of any Kombatan splinter organization, or under any Chief Instructors in the United States or Pan- America. As agreed upon with the Jan-Jan and the Presas family, we will continue to propogate and pr...omote Kombatan Arnis under their leadership and will report directly to them. We also repect the Manongs (elders) of Kombatan in the States that have been loyal to GM Presas since before I joined. Kuya Alex France, Kuya Joey Paman, Kuya Alex Ercia, Kuya Ed Farris and the others in the San Francisco/Valejo area. In the Philippines, GM Pepe Yap, Master Ed Kawada, GM Zimba.
If you have any concerns about our loyalty, questions about my seniority, or cease and desist letters, please contact Jan-Jan or the Presas Family, or if you are in the area, see me personally

I haven't gotten around to writing a Year End Wrap-Up broadcast for IPMAF yet, but this news should come out now for Shelley's circle of friends: GM Shelley was recently (within the past month) promoted by GGM Ernesto Presas from Grandmaster, Lakan 8 to Grandmaster, Lakan 9. Congratulations, Shelley! You certainly deserve it! I think I'll go post this on Facebook and My FMA Net. :-)
I'm doing o.k., other than a few torn ligaments in my left hand & wrist. I went back to college so overloaded w/work right now. Miss you guys, hope everything is going good. Are you still off of Southwest Blvd?
