I started August 13th 2007, when I was 35, as student of Mr. Patrick Armijo when he was in Ferndale WA. and have been in love ever since.
It's recently been my pleasure, with the blessing of Dr. Presas and Mr. Armijo to open my own class here in my home town, Anacortes. (Anacortesmodernarnis.com coming soon!)
I've done some fencing, a little bit of silat, some systema, and I've trained with instructors from the Tracy Kenpo system, Goju Ryu Karate, and of course, Mr Armijo's Kempo Jutsu Kai.
My favorite part of arnis is the application of sword and knife, whether in espada y daga, daga, or espada/dual espada. But sticks are fun too, and empty hand, and dumog and sikaran and...well, everything else.
Feel free to PM me if the mood strikes.
