Wow, the interest in this Gathering has been tremendous!!!
There have been inquiries from Connecticut, Kentucky, Tennessee, Georgia, and even Kansas and LA!

Please note the following:

- There may be a limited number of private lessons for Tuhon Ray. These slots will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis.

- There may be a semi-private curriculum class taught by myself for those parties who have been studying the curriculum remotely based on need. Please let me know if you are interested in this class.

- Please let me know in advance if you are interested in starting an FCS training group, if you are interested in being an FCS-Kali Rep, if you are interested in products made by Tuhon Ray, or if you are interested in hosting Tuhon Ray for seminars. It's better for Tuhon Ray and myself to have knowledge about these items before he arrives in order to better assist you.

- We are out of the early bird registration period so please note the following non-FCS member registration info:
$120.00 - For Both Saturday and Sunday or $85.00 for an individual day (Sat or Sun) for prepayment after for all attendees
pre-paying via Paypal before May 19th, 2009.
$150.00 - For Both Saturday and Sunday or $90.00 for an individal day at the door.

Hi Everyone,

Here is another update.

Since this seminar will now be a "Gathering Level" seminar, Tuhon Ray has ok'ed and insists that seminar participants can record footage of this event.

The only catch is that we may ask if we can receive a copy of such footage. :)


Take care,

Guro Harold

It has been requested by several upcoming first time participants if there could be a FCS pre-Gathering primer session before the event.

In order to meet that request, we are organizing a couple of different sessions.

I will be hosting a two hour session in the Greensboro, NC area on May 31st.

Mr Brian Corey, a FCS-Kali Certified Instructor and Charlotte Metro Area Rep, will be conducting a four hour session on June 6th when he visits his hometown in Wilmington, NC.

More information to follow. If you have any questins, please post them in this thread or email me at mail_harold@yahoo.com.

Best regards,

Lakan Guro Harold Evans

FYI...

I was able to secure a meeting room at the hotel for those who would like to train more than hang out after the Saturday session. :)

It might be used for private and semi- privates as well.

Hello,

I am so very honored to be able to offer congratulations to Mr. Lawrence Wilder who was promoted to Certified Instructor (Black Belt) in FCS-Kali this last weekend at the FCS-Kali Southeastern Gathering!

Mr. Wilder is a student of Certified Instructor and Alabama State Rep, Stanley Tippins, who is one of my black belts in FCS-Kali and Hock Hochheim's Pacific Archipelago Combatives.

As a result of Mr. Tippins and Mr. Wilder's hard work, I can now proudly announce that he is my first second generation black belt practitioner!

Best regards,

Guro Harold

Hello,

Many thanks to the students, certified instructors, reps, guests, and finally Tuhon Ray for making this, our first FCS Southeastern Gathering an great success!!!

From our current members, we had participants from Al, SC, Ga, and NC. From NC, we had members from Asheville to Carolina Beach, NC.

Some of our guests came from as far away as Mn, Ct, Oh, Ky, Tn, and Wv.

All the participants contributed to a fun, safe, and exciting training experience.

It was an honor to host such a great and enthusiastic group!

See you next year!!!
