Do you know anyone in KI? If you do, then you know that there is only one person who shares your passion with this Spanish influence/connection. Almost all of the seniors and direct students of the old man uses Kali to represent their brand of KI. No one has that rabid anti-Kali that you try to stamp on KI group as a whole. GM Norman Suanico uses Kali. GM Chris Ricketts uses Kali. GM Sulite and his students use Kali. M Galang uses Kali. M Robert Morales uses Kali. M Raganas uses Kali. Students of GM Tony Diego who formed their own groups also use Kali without any problem with the grandmaster. The Great Grand Master Antonio Ilustrisimo himself signed documents certifying instructors of Kali Ilustrisimo Escrima! It's just you, Macapagal and Yuli Romo that speak of Kali in disparaging way. Which of the two do you represent then? Obviously, a nameless guy like you can't speak for KI.
