It’s about skill, not gimmicks.

It is about the development of lasting skill. A transferable skill to different combinations of weapon sets. It is about connecting skills that work well together.  It is about skill that improves with age. It is about understanding things to its completeness. It is about total understanding and not flashy gimmicks or trendy fads or fancy uniforms and gear we see in movies. It is about the flexible understanding of principles. Not about memorized sets or cookie-cutter solutions.

It is about skill that gets better with experience. It is about understanding that deepens with testing yourself.

Unlock your inner potential.

testing 2015 1

2015 Ranking Cermonies

AUGUST 28,2015.  So, that time of year has come again. After our students completed their level testing last week, today they receive there Certificates of Rank for completing the requirements for their specific levels. I am proud to acknowledge the hard work our members put into their preparations for testing, as well as during the testing itself.  The pressure of performing under the watchful gaze of an audience while being graded by the instructor can be nerve-wracking.

showtime!!!

So I would like to congratulate this year’s batch and wish them good luck as they join those already there and encourage those whose turn is still to come.  We would like to also acknowledge the presence of the Philippine Ambassador to Israel, HE Ambassador Neal Imperial who gave a short message and award the certificates to this years batch and members of LSAIsrael.

a little reward for the hard work

Thanks also go to the senior members and Apprentice Instructors for their assistance during the testing.  They boldly put their bodies in harm’s way to  facilitate a successful and safe testing. 😛
So to everyone, Tatlong Basbas on you!
Congratulations! Goodluck! Good Job!

LSAIsrael is the bastion of Lightning Scientific Arnis and the Legacy of Grandmaster Benjamin Luna Lema in the Holy Land.  Now into its 7th year and still growing strong, I am very grateful to my students and the opportunity to pass on to them this cultural inheritance.

ICS, Cabales Serrada Escrima, LSAIsrael, FCS Kali

Four sessions, 2 demonstrations:

We begin with Abi Moriya representing the close-range stickwork of Caballes Serrada Escrima followed by Jon Escudero of Lightning Scientific Arnis Israel demonstrating follow-up attack options after a successful block. Guy Rafaeli of Israeli Combat Systems presents close range knife work and the context in which is is devastating.  Yaron Brill of FCS Kali works our participants on some of the softer skill in FMA that translate from stick to knife-work and hand to hand.
Kalis Illustrisimo

Kalis Illustrisimo

We introduce Brenton Welford who just moved to Israel, representing the Classical blade work of  Kalis Illustrisimo.  Brenton trained under Master Arnold Narzo under the supervision of the late GM Tony Diego in the Philippines.

Tabimina Balintawak System

We also introduce Eran Fuchs of the Tabimina Balintawak System demonstrating the close range aggressive methodology.  Eran trains directly under GM Bobby Tabimina in the Philippines.  They also conduct seminars when GM Bobby is in the country.
We thank all instructors for their expertise and generosity for sharing their knowledge in their sessions and demonstrations.  Our appreciation also goes to all out participants, regular and first time participants who braved the heat and humidity of “pre-summer” Israel.

Our appreciation also goes to Tomer of TACTICOOL and their amazing array of “tools of the trade”, also for fun and recreation 😛  My wife, Neta Sermister deserves all my gratitude and appreciation for all her support in all these activities as well as her patience with me for all these things that keep me busy 😛

LSAIsrael at Dojo Festival 6

APRIL | 22-24 | 2015 – This was LSAIsrael’s 2nd year at the Dojo Festival where many different groups with many interests come and enjoy the festive atmosphere at the Springs at Sachne in the North of Israel. Dojo Festival, as the name implies is an event participated in by many martial arts groups such as Kung Fu, Capoeira, Aikido, Jujitsu, Krav Maga, Taekwondo and others. There were also other eclectic and aesthetic interests such as Zumba, Belly Dancing, Yoga etc.

Participants of the Arnis sessions worked some basic stick-vs-stick defenses and entries into Baston Serrada.

In between the hourly sessions in the different tents, participants enjoyed the cool waters of the different pools at the spring or enjoy other refreshments, snacks or meals at the rest tent.

We enjoyed some light camping and barbecuing throughout the days we were there and really good company, meeting old friends and making new ones.

See you again next year!
