    after reading all of mark wiley's and dan inosantos's books and a few others, im interested in studying Pekiti Tersia Kali. So far there are none in Hawaii yet. ive been training a blend of inosanto style /jkd style with traditional wing chun classes. here in Hawaii we have a great FMA community but its still not widespread like in the mainland. wish there were more garage schools of FMA like there are on the mainland.:)

    Well, FMA, JKD, and WC sounds like a good combination to me! I have some experience with each, though not that much with WC.

    Welcome Pinapaitan,
    There are alot of good FMA schools here in Hawaii. I think alot of our local fighters have been overlooked for a long time. I've also read some of Mark Wileys books. Be careful some of the information is not accurate in his books.

    Where are you from? When you say wide spread on the mainland. What state or states are you referring too?
