I would like to start a new thread on what is happening in the world of Modern Arnis.

On Friday October 19th I was honored to be chosen to accept a memorial award for GM Remy Presas from the North American Black Belt Hall of Fame. In addition to this honor I was also inducted as Arnis Master of the Year 2001.

The event was held at Long Beach CA. I meet a lot of nice people and was entertained by Lion Dancers and Taiko Drummers. I had a fun trip and met some good poeple and the plane didn't crash! That's cool!
:cheers:

Can you be more specific about who the guest instructors will be?

When was the first Buffalo camp? 1989?

The guests are not set yet. They are still checking for schedule conflicts. The 1st winter camp ever was held in Buffalo NY 1989. Then we did a spring camp in 1990 and finished with a summer camp in 1991. Buffalo is one of Modern Arnis' oldest locations in the states.

What do you mean no international incidents yet? Since you've been gone the big buzz is about Ingmar's crew not re-newing with the AKKS. We're all talking about it. I KNEW that there had to be some connection with it and you being over there!

D@mn it! We can't let you leave your own country anymore.
:cuss:

Say hi to Ingmar from Dutch! I see he joined the board here too.
