    whew :cry: survived the recently held ARPI torney selection for SEAG. Just been in FMA for 6m,onths, & an opportunity comes in for a great baptism, swooshh, swattt :woo: , a head strike :eek: , ekk i cannot move, been hit, 5 times 1st round, me 1pt, the head gear was not strapped properly, swooshh flew high when i was hit in the neck, until now its swollen :cry: , :D . 2nd round, again my opponent got 5 point from me, & me got 1 pt :eek: ..

    the after the game, my team mate told me i did fine for a newbie, coz, i fought a veteran & a former world champion :cry: , I think Ybanez is the name, phil team member.

    but its a great experience, I'll really cherish it, got a poster of the tourney & will frame it in my room. will tell my future son, well son, i was there, my opponent beat the hell out of me :D :D :D lol.

    kidding aside, the experience gives me more the drive to train hard & maybe could compete at the their level. Wil also try "creative anyo", the reggie sanchez guy is great. :cool:

    for the guys who gave me moral support, tips like sir pat, sir diego_vega & other guys, thanks... "I lost, but I survive!!" lol. :D :D :D

    Sound like you had a great time Pinoy, well done. 1 point per round is far better than no points:D and if I am right in recollecting the name of the guy you fought. he is no novice shall we say. I remember a guy by this name (Ybanez) from my previous visits to the PI, and he is goooooood, very gooooood. So you done well my friend.

    I will be at the ARPI worlds with my family and some students in December so maybe we will see you their.

    Again well done. Keep it up and one day you will be one of the top players. All it takes is hard work and training.

    Best regards

    Hey Pinoy,


    I hear Bakbakan might be holding a similar tourney in October. Now that you're an esperienced guy, it should be even more fun.

    Ingat ka bro (literally "be careful", but more accurately "be safe.") and all the best to GM Sanchez.

    thanks sir diego_vega!

    me experienced after that? :eek: , nah :D , it was just my welcoming band. Guess will try to train harder, so i really can compete at the level where these guys are.

    FYI too sir, there will be a NARAPHIL tourney this coming May & will be held in Marikina (livestick). PM me if you're interested for details, sir moderator might move the thread :D , if you'll ask me, I'd rather train first, but if GM Vic needed a guy, am not the one :cry: lol, maybe only, to complete the welcoming band. Just have to be very careful not to include in the welcoming band the stitches,& broken bones :cry:

    all of the guys there are great, selection of the best, except for me :D lol.

    if am not mistaken, tacurong team was the over all champion for the 2nd consecutive year, dunno.

    good you, 1st time to watch, me first time to compete :cry: bashed many times, lol :D , but it was great really.

    have you seen the guy that, how can i re-phrase this, almost flew his fingernails out? bloody fight :eek: , i forgot w/c team he was, but if im not mistaken, his opponent is from the pnp, strong bashing ability.

    and the guy who wore a necklace, forgot to remove it & was hit in the chest, a bloody cut again :bang:

    whew :p

    just read your post pinoy-and from the favorable replies here to your post now i really wished i had a chance to catch the action at crame (sigh)...

    anyways, there's always those coming tourneys you mentioned later this year...but again, congratulations on your "baptism" bro'

    you didn't lose. the only way that the experience would've constituted a loss is if you didn't learn from it.

    besides, i think you liked it! :eek: :eek:

    are you a pro player?

    Live stick yes, but I believe that you're wearing body armour. Much more tiring than ARPI, very busy style without any chance to rest. Work on your cardio and being able to hit 200 times a minute. I don't think I'll be able to attend, but I'd like to tell my guys to show up.

    Please keep me informed about this. PM me when you have the details. Style?

    BTW, basketball carreer? Are you trying out for our national team too, you know, the one that recently lost to a municipal team that had actors and comedians on it? :D
