Greetings,

I wanted to share with you and your martial arts community information about an upcoming Kali clinic October 19th in Santa Fe. I thought you (and/or your students) might be interested.

I love Kali and want to help grow the community in Santa Fe. Unfortunately, I wasn't aware of any FMA options in Santa Fe. Thus far, I have been a lone practitioner, finding it difficult to find skilled partners. Because of that, I took it upon myself to invite G**o Juan out to teach a clinic. I wanted to train, and was hoping that it would inspire other folks to get into FMA.

G**o Juan has trained(s) under G**o Krishna Godhania, G**o Dan Inosanto and Tuhon Harley Elmore in Sayoc, Silat and Warrior's Eskrima.

I would appreciate it if you could share this with your members. I have attached a flyer that has more details.

Please let me know if you have any questions.
Only a week and a half left to order your Nickelstick Balintawak Gear! Orders CLOSE at end of day on 10/31 - no exceptions! Don't wait!
*Approved by GM Nick!

There is no such thing as Knife Defense.
Tactical Combat is always Offensive. You determine who goes home or who die. Playing defense is the easiest way to DIE.
Here's a clip of my vlog that's coming out next week.. explaining the diffrence between learning The Martial Arts and The Tactical Combative Art with in the Martial Arts.
Yep! That's 2 different thing.

Stick Is just the extention of your hands.
You're doing the exact the same thing with Or WithOut Weapons.

If you can see where the knife will hit you then you can
"Disarm, Right?" Answer is no.

Yes! You might be able to block it, but your hand will be Annihilated LOL and once
That's done you can't stop that
Blade coming at you

The Philippine Martial Art has inspired the sword-fighting choreography for "Dune"
The specific style of FMA used was Balintawak Eskrima a closed range fighting art founded by SGM Venancio "Anciong" Bacon. This stick fighting style can transition to any weapon from Knife to Gun. Learn the Stick then you learn the Knife.
Filipino Martial Art makes its latest mark in Hollywood...
The Art of Balintawak Eskrima is born in the place where I came from (Cebu City,Philippines) , Blessed and Fortunate to be a Direct Student under GrandMaster Nick Elizar and only 2 of us are Authorized to teach the Art here in the US 🇺🇸 Under the Style Of Nickelstick Balintawak Eskrima the Other Guy is in the MaryLand.
