Thank you sir,
Always great to hear from you. I could consider myself, per haps, one of the luckiest man on earth.
It is the life I lived, martial arts is just a very small portion to life. I thank everything to my wife, whom I had been
for 48 years, and in 2011 - will part of the martial arts world, to live in Hawaii.
In thanking you again for your warm words in wishes, sir Kawash, bapak willem de thouars

Dear GGM Willem
you r right, iam muslium, i believe whether the person is, muslium, jew, christian,Daoism, buhdism,taoism, the essence of all these r the same, we r here to make a word a better place, to help each other, and learn to be a better person today than yesterday, and learn from GOD signs in heaven and earth, and lrean how to steer our ships in troubled water, and how to adjust our sails, so we can made the most efficient use of the wind, even though the wind , might not be in our favor, and i think, that applay also to our martial arts training, how to maximise our efficeny, and trun the tables against our opponents, although i only new few thing about ur arts from books and videos,the nice thing about urs arts, they reflect ur phoilsophy of living every day by moment to the fullest, and that what urs art represent, the most efficient use of the moment during combat, as i told u before, ur skills, spirit, belives,they r tuned together.and this a sign of true GGM
best wishes

Hello Uncle Bill de Thouars,
Thank you for taking time to welcome as a friend I am truly greatfull
for the oppurtunity. I live Arkansas and have recently began training with John Malmo who has told me a little about you. I am interested in learning more
about KunTao/Silat and John has been kind enough to oblige.
I also noticed a student of yours lives in Bella Vista , AR. Steve Todd
that is where I live and I wish to train with him also. If you have an opinion I would like to here it.

With Respect
Thank you
Josh Pearce

Hello Uncle Bill de Thouars
My name is Mark Ingemi , & Ive joined the MYFMA a couple of weeks ago. I am really proud of being apart of the MYFMA. It gives me priviledge to get to know talented martial artists like yourself. Over the last few yrs Ive heard a lot about you , & Bukti Negara Silat , which I am very interested in. I live in the state of NJ. I am right now , in pursuit of certification in Jujitsu under Michael DePasquale Jr. Have you ever heard of him before? I am just curious to know. If you are interested , there will be an event that will be held in Suffern , NY at the Suffern Holiday Inn on November 13 - 15 of this yr of 2009. Its called the MAU ( MARTIAL ARTS UNIVERSITY). I just thought that I would mention it to you. When I get more info of the payment wise I will be getting back to you. Hope all is well , & if you would like to get in touch with me you can at the info below. Thank you.

I understand that one of my students was your neighbor for a while- Ken Wheeler. He was a coast guard guy.
Yes, I do believe we are all in this together. Whether we have a love of IMA or FMA. I trained in the Philippines from 1970 til 1973 and then sought out what I could when I got back in the states. I trained with many IMA people includingyour brother.. I value what I find and what has been given me.. Salamat Po Uncle stay well, stay strong, and please- share your knowledge.
