    Its pretty amusing to watch people argue about what is correct, who has the definitive lineage, or the minute differences in a basic flow drill.

    Its even funnier when someone gets called out after all their raves and rants about the superiority (guised as originality) of their training methods.

    Actually, I admire Jensen's enthusiasm in promoting his art and his teacher. We need more people like him promoting Balintawak.
    He just needs to experience things outside his little fishbowl.

    Balintawak is Balintawak.
    Everyone has their own unique methods.
    Learn your art, be the best you can be, and aim to unite the Balintawak family. Dont be the petulant child who barks and cries and causes familial strife.

    hi jan,

    it is not our balintawak tradition to refused a friendly invitation, find a convenient time for you and john to come and reply or post back. This is the way how to correct this whole arguments. It is not too far to go to ayala park, only maybe 15 to 20 minutes. I myself is very very busy,also i live in america but, i will find a time to meetyou guys this november. Deffinately. Sorry for my speeling thanks.

    GM. John Villasin told me to say, he is busy and i dont think its me you like to meet?

    But after seeing both GGM. Velez style and Villasin style, i can tell you they are different....
    Villasin Style makes it easy on a student and leaves out the element of danger, if you ask Henry Jayme when i showed it to him he liked GGM. Velez better for that very reason.....

    I think its a matter of taste, no style is better or wrose then the other......Both are good in my mind!

    But if you and your friends still like to meet me, then i live in Liloan now. Come here at our Guardians Chapter in:

    PGBI Liloan.
    Villa Theresa Subd.
    Bagon Dan, Yati, Liloan

    Then we can meet, but from what i was told that invite was not really to me, but the Grandmaster of Villasin style.
