    This'll be coextensive with the MartialTalk Meet & Greet! I'm not yet sure if I can make it, but would like to be there.

    We are looking for instructors to teach a session. If you teach, you get in free. This is a good opportunity to give others a taste of what your art has. :)

    I'd like to be there. My wife has something going on that Friday, but I'm not sure if it's an all day thing or not. If I can free those days up I may be able to work it out.

    This is the M&G for a variety of <martialart>Talk.com websites, and will include more than just the FMA. But, it will be held at a dedicated FMA school!

    Right now, we've got 5 designated instructors on the list. I'll be trying to get another update up over the weekend. I'm hoping for another 1-2 FMA on the roster.

    Anyone attending who would like a few minutes to explain of demo is also welcome. This event has been an excellent sharing and learning experience the past several years, and we're looking to continue to expand. :)

    If everyone who has contacted me about teaching could shoot me a PM to confirm their intent and a 1-2 sentence write up of what they'll be doing bu Monday night? I want to update the event info and get the sign up page running.

    Thanks!

    So, the times should be posted by Tuesday? I'm without a computer currently, so I may have to hit someone up to use theirs so I can start trying to formulate a plan.

    Revised Schedule:

    Friday 6pm to whenever - social (means we'll be dining somewhere, and hanging out. TBD yet)

    Saturday - noon to about 6pm we'll be training at the school. 7pm we'll be meeting at a local Chinese Buffet for dinner, and then doing more socializing.

    Sunday is open right now.

    Today is the last day for guarenteed room rates, and it looks like theres only the 2 smoking rooms left. Let me know ASAP! if you want a non-smoking and I'll see what I can do.

    Jack Latorre Siyam

    I will be in attendance and offering a basic overview of certain aspects of the Pekiti-Tirsia system, probably guided by people's questions and focus of interest.

    I look forward to meeting the rest of the attendees.

    Regards.

    Bob Hubbard Darth Vindicatus Supporting Member

    Please, everyone, make sure you register so we can have an reasonably accurate idea on who is coming. I'll be updating things probably on Sunday on the website and here.

    It's shaping up to be our biggest M&G yet! :D

    I highly recommend anyone interested in Pekiti Tirsia to attend Mr. Jack Latorre's session. He is an exemplary practitioner, a great teacher, and a great person. I'm a bit biased as we are good friends, but his skills are top notch in both the application and the teaching of Pekiti Tirsia.
