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.

And so we are back again for the 2016 evaluation and Levels testing in LSAIsrael!  A great opportunity for growth and progress in our practice of Filipino Martial Arts.  Students prepared months in advance for this assessment and it is great to see them bring their hard work into fruition.  It was good to see new students attain their Levels as well as current members advance to higher levels of study.

JANUARY 22, 2016LSAIsrael starts its year off with a seminar at it Rishon LeZion branch!  In its commitment to promote the Filipino Martial Arts we are doing more seminars in the country.
The day’s topic was on stick trapping in close range as an option to immobilize and isolate the opponent’s weapon and create an opportunity to counterattack.  There’s a balance between knowing by instinct and knowing by experience. We train so that instinct and experience together can help up us in making life changing decisions.

learning to stick with it

The second topic was on releasing a trapped or captured weapon hand and creating the opportunity to counter-attack. When your weapon hand is trapped or compromised you have less than a second to react to the situation.  Creating the proper foundation for your reaction is important, otherwise you will just be setting yourself up for your opponent’s advantage or failure.

A friend of mine published an article about us on his Blog TALKING THE EDGE on September 11, 2012.  Its been years since then so sometimes I wonder if I made any sense at all saying all those things.  Its like a time capsule showing me a memory or a glimpse of what was on my mind and going on in my life at that time and if I was making any sense at all.

So without further ado here’s the link to his article,

“FMA for 21st Century – Interview with Jon Escudero”

Be sure to read the rest of his blog as the topics are quite interesting.

Happy Reading.

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!
