I have an uncle who teaches it in L.A. So I never see him so I can't ask him. I know it's phillipino but that's all I know. He also has a picture of him and Bruce Lee together. I saw that when I saw him last, which was about 1980. Anybody have any info? I know I could do a search on the web but this place is more fun.

Limalama, is therefore a derivative of the old systems practiced in the Polynesian islands and that are:

1.Afikau- the study of the traditions single-breasted uniform jackets, specifically the dance.
2. Amofoe- the understanding of the manipulation of the weight, tacticas of balance and changes to desbalancear the weight.
3. F獺aelise- the study of the coordination, balance, reflections, you catch, breakings and falls.
4. Faufusu or K繳ik繳lga- Movements similar to the fight hand by hand, boxing, or street fight.
5. Lu獺aga or L矇ilga- the study of the pressure points, nerves and joints.
6. Milosia- the study of the shipment, execution and application of circular movements like catching the wrists.
7. Pepelu ma Pega- the study of the fight with knives. Be is a conceptual method in the armament use.
8. Uma ma Kaup穩i- the study of you catch them, breakings and demolitions.
9. Vaeka ma Kavae- the study of movements like kicks and defense with feet.
10. T穩apega ma L籀u- the study of Kao穩a, fights with cane.
11. Tal'amoa- the study of the combination of demas concepts.
12. Upaga ma L籀ul籀uga- the study of you catch them.
13. F獺ak籀elau- Movements similar to the free fight, including keys and trips.

The original style was taught of robust and somewhat wild form, reason why it was not accessible to most of people. By such reason, during a time it was reviewed, evaluated and he was subject to numerous modifications, as much in his techniques as in his methods of education.

As of that moment its expansion at world-wide level, but mainly in Mexico began. At the moment Mexico occupies the first world-wide place as far as the number of medical instructors, but due to the lack of unity between the different organizations who direct the Limalama in Mexico has not been able to establish definitively in the place that corresponds to him.

Apparently for quite some time. He started in Kung Fu at 17 under Ark Yuey Wong, Received his first black belt under Danny Guzman, developed his skills with Sal Esquivel, Joe Rosas, He also participated in the first Ed Parkers first International Karate Championships. He took first place in Black belt sparring for his age group. This is where he met Bruce Lee.

Grandmaster tuiolosega formed the first Limalama association with Sal Esquivel, Richard Nunez (my uncle) John Marolt, Haumea "tiny" Lafiti, and Sol Kaihewalu. Out of the six original members, my uncle is the only one left still teaching and practicing.

That dwells in the capital of Peru. A mighty fine companion when exploring the ruins of Macchu Picchu.

Thanks for the breakdown on Lima Lama. That is pretty cool.....I have a tape of Ted Tabura doing some techniques, and, I gotta say, it is pretty good stuff. Just the right mix of circular and linear for my tastes, and I think he moves pretty darn well.

The voiceover, though, could use a little work. The guy sounds like only a cattle prod would bring any excitement into his life....:shrug:

Vince, I think you are thinking of the Lima LLama, a notoriously vicious fighting style practiced in the mountains of Peru, consisting of mostly kicks and spitting at people. The practitioners of this style are frequently found training in wool gis. It has an offshoot style known as "alpaca-do". :rolleyes:

Sorry, couldn't resist.......

"A one-l lama, that's a priest,
a two-l llama, that's a beast.
But I will bet a silk pyjama
you will never find a three-l lllama"

--Unless you are a fireman, of course. :eek:

Peace--

Hehe....hey, the only way that I was able to string any of that together was the fact that my wife happens to like llamas (the animal, not the priests)......

And as for the poem, well.....that I lifted from someone else...:eek:

Peace--
