    I am sorry if this has been asked before...but it hasn't by me[​IMG]
    I am returning to the UK at the end of the year and I was wondering if anyone could tell me of any Kali schools in the UK...or any FMA for that matter.
    Thanx.

    Sticky threads stay at the top of a forum listing so that they can be more easily found, thus potentially increasing visibility.

    If you look here at the top of the forum thread list, you will see the location of FMA in the UK....

    Update!

    GM Danny Guba is now a 10th Degree Black Belt, and I'm a 4th Degree BB under both GM Guba and GM Diony Canete.

    GM Guba now has his own website:

    And finally my second (Tuesday 7-8.30pm) class is now situated at St Teresa's Church Hall, Heaton.

    Cheers

    I just wanted to add that Krishna Godhania is also the Sayoc Kali representative in the UK.

    I just trained with him two weeks ago at Sama Sama.
    He's highly recommended.!

    I got quite a bit of flack from other FMA'ers for posting this group's video in other bulletins and forums. I don't quite understand their criticisms.
    I think these guys in this video are doing wonderful because it shows that these practitioners do not limit their practice to just one or two ranges in fighting. They use stick, punch, kick, and throw-down to the "ground-and-pound" as well.
