    I've moved the Remy Presas memorial that I did some years back to it's own domain. It is now found at http://remypresas.com.

    Thank you

    If you remember, just please tell Prof. Remy that Sensei Tom O'Brien still tries to carry the torch. I tell the younger practitioners of a great man with a great passion & skill. His name will never die in the the Vee-Jitsu system.
    I will tell you a short story about the professor & I when we went to a karate tournament. To make a long story short I wound up fighting for 1st place in the black belt division. The chief ref. was my opponents Sensei. Needless to say I lost. But Prof. Remy was so infuriated at the unfairness I thoght he was going to beat them with his sticks. We laughed about it afterwards.
    He was a great man.
    Thanks,
    Sensei Tom

    Thank you Sensie, He was truly a master that touched so many people. I learned alot on the mat and more off the mat, you had a rare pleasure to have a valuable lesson of the mat.

    Friends, please forgive my ignorance.

    Is Sensei Remy Presas the same Sensei Presas that used to teach Arnis
    at the University of Sto. Tomas years ago? Who used to travel in
    an owner-type jipney with a large "balisong" inside the vehicle?

    If it is one and the same, more apologies, friends. I didn't know he passed
    away. I was under him under Physical Education class. Also, his nephew was
    one of my classmates in high school - Marist (Rodel Presas).

    I am so sorry to hear about his loss. The world has lost a great man.
