Sitting and reflecting on this past weekend at the Modern Arnis Black Belt Training Camp & Hall of Fame. a great vibe came put of the camp that put a smile on my face. I got to hook up with one of my favorite people, Brian Zawilinski. I got to spend some quality time with Tom Bolden and Peter Vargas and got to know, respect and like them. Got to feed off of Tom Hartman's energy and sense of humor. Got to meet someone who I've heard tons about but hadn't - Dennis Tosten. We got along like we had been old training partners. Got to reconnect with Joe Briedenstein again. A special treat was hooking up with Mark Wiley for the first time in the last couple of years. He and I are like two peas in a pod when it comes to approaching FMA on a principle level. And Michael Bates - his passion to honoring Remy Presas' dream of having a hall of fame for his art came to fruition. Michael, you made history. For those of you who missed it, no worries. This WILL be an annual event!
