Rancho Cordova, US

Just wondering, with all the Pilipinos here, do any of you practice any of the FMA (Filipino Martial Arts - Arnis, Eskrima, Kali, Sikaran or other)?

I have been study Estalilla-Bansuelo Kabaroan for several years. Grandmaster Ramiro Estalilla first learned this Ilocano art from his uncles and his parents during WWII in Zamboanga. Grandmaster's father first taught the art in the US in the 1920s in Minneapolis, MN. Now residing in Fresno, CA, it is always a pleasure to meet with him when he comes up to Sacramento to teach and enjoy his fellowship.

Associate Grandmaster Ed Bansuelo is one Grandmaster's students and a great person to learn the art from.

Here are a few pictures:
