My apologies for responding so late Mam Lobaton, I am new to this network and have had little time to visit it because of recent work commitments. Thank you for your invitation, that's a very nice group shot with your students by the way.
It is my great honor not just to be accepted in this forum with all of these different martial art systems but with its lineage of instructors and practitioners. On this day I am graced and honored to have you Mam Judy Lobaton accept me in friendship. I am hoping that in the true spirit of the martial arts we can come together and not just share different insights on martial arts but see how thru the martial arts we can be more united as people and knock down all the so-called barriers that seperate those who don't understand themselves and their art. In this spirit I embrace you and I thank you. You honor me with your friendship.
