Discussion in 'Tournaments' started by StixMaster, Feb 8, 2008.
Looks like something to check out.
Can anyone enter or do you have to be affiliated with a school, or a certain style?
I guess I am asking if anyone can walk off the street and enter? Someone like me with no "formal" experience in eskrima, other than stuff picked up in the back yard.
The link is:
On the right side is the poster (shown above) and a link to the tournament rules. As an 'invitational' its open to anyone who agrees to follow the rules, it appears. There is an extensive list of what techniques are 'legal' or 'illegal', as well.
I cant speak on behalf of the school but you can always speak with GM Ty Takahasi to verify if you can enter, he is a really good guy.
This is a great way to enjoy Hawaii & FMA at the same time. I'm just getting this out so people can have time to save & plan.
Did it last year, got to enjoy Oahu and FMA. I scheduled the family vacation during the tourney. Got to meet other FMA'ers and made new friends. Not to mention da local grindz; Telma's Filipino Restaurant in Waipahu, Sam Choy''s on Dillingham blvd., and da local favorite Zippy's. If anyone goes you gotta try Sugio's Bento (broke da mouth). Will not go this year, made other plans during the same month. But Greg808 will be there to capture the title. Greg808 Mahalo for da local grindz at Telma's. Mahalo
my team have plans to go...see you there...Police Kali arnis...Pinoy police power......!!!!!!!
Due to circumstances beyond control The Pacific Island Showdown III 2008 has been officially cancelled by Grandmaster Ty
Tournament may be cancelled but do not cancel your trip to Hawaii. It's still a beautiful place to visit and I'm sure you can still train with Hawaii FMA'ers.
Maybe with the lost of couple airlines and fuel cost could probably be the reason. Airline tickets to Hawaii has gone up in price. Then it could be something else. It is a great tournament.
I'm sorry to hear that! Grandmaster Ty is a true gentleman and warrior. We should all support his genuine effort to perpetuate the F.M.A. in a positive manner!
We look forward to your next event, G.M. Tyrone!
Why dont try Manila on JULY! Workshop and Tournament under the Phil council of kali Eskrima Arnis Masters (PCKEAM) under GM Roland Dantes
TRY OUR World Cup on July in Manila!
I guarantee all of you taht you will enjoy...
Cost too much to travel for tournaments, its the economics ! The prices of airfares are rising.
There will be several World Tournament in Philippines, as mention by redominquez1 Manila has a tournament and also Cebu. This years WEKAF World Tournament is back in Cebu, every other two years. Not only WEKAF Worlds but also Doce Pares Worlds Championship. For those of you on the mainland (non Hawaii residents), LA is having several tournaments this year, Mt. San Antonio College (Mt. SAC) and not sure on the other but both is in LA, CA. The other in CA is in Stockton ESKCOA tournament. It's the same type of tournament as Pacific Island Showdown without Ultimate Warrior category. This info is to share the events in FMA that some don't get to hear about.
Hey Greg, do you know if GM will bring back the tourney at a later date? I was really looking forward to it...
I'm sure there were good reasons for canceling the Showdown. That late in the year most likely it will have to wait till next year. Cost might be a factor but hey lets just promote FMA especially Pedoy's/Derobio !!!! Aloha
I was browsing around the forum and got to this thread , its feels great when People are sharing information with eachother so that others can learn. Keep this going ever.
