    :p hey guys, dunno if this will interest you, but at last (if u guys still remember me inquiring for kali training place/instructor :D )..

    am training under GM Sanchez, he's teaching me first Lightning (sori i forgot the complete style name :confused: , ill check it after i post this, sori guys ;) ), then he'll teach me modern arnis, kasilagan & cinco terros as well..


    wish me luck guys, u also can give training tips, i have hit my head twice :bang: already during training, maybe my arm is not yet used to handling stick at this point :D

    Well Done

    "Duck" :D ;)

    No really, you will soon stop hitting yourself, beleive me. You would not beleive how many times I hit myself in the head when I first started:eek: . The next stage is taking out a few ceiling light bulbs;) and a few ornaments with the occasional glass window for good measure. The bulb company made a fortune out of me in the early years, still makes a few bucks from me now too.

    Great to see your now training, I am sure you will be hooked like the rest of us. If I'm right the full title you were looking for is Lightning Scientific Arnis (GM Benjamin Lima's style). a great style.

    Good luck in your training although I am sure you wont need it with such a well respected Master. I am pretty sure too you will have lots more to talk about.

    Best regards

    Hi Pinoy

    I had the great pleasure of briefly meeting GM Vic Sanchez last December, and he is not only a very respected Grandmaster, but also an extremely humble and polite gentleman of FMA.

    The system is Lightning Scientific Arnis, and I am sure that you will greatly enjoy training with GM Vic. If you get the chance, try to train with Master Bert Labaniego of the espada y daga branch of Lightning Scientific Arnis. He is also a very senior studentof the late GM Ben Luna Lema. I managed to train with Master Bert, and he is a highly skilled exponent, and a very humble gentleman. Drop me a PM if you want contact information for M Bert!

    Good luck in your training.

    Very best regards

    hey pat, tnx for the tips & moral support :Angel: . Guess I wont think much of the bulbs, we're practicing outdoors, its a sports complex to be precise, I guess I just have to watch out hitting :eek: joggers :D . Coz my palm perspire a lot, I could even hit GM when he observe & stand infront of me :eek: .

    hi pete!! hey thanks for reffering me other great instructors at the time am looking for one. I have talked w/ Sir Orly re Master Bert, I guess, I have not met them because, their training place is too far from my place/work place. As of now, I think I'll finish my training first w/ GM Vic before I see Master Bert. We are training in Rizal, near my place, also I get/got a flexible schedule w/ GM Vic, thats a great factor coz am working on a shifting schedule.

    Anyways, Ill try to see Master Bert if i could get a chance ;)

    thanks pete :D
