    Hi Chaz, I trained at the Honolulu school in the 1980's. Pedoy/Derobio is still the MA style I love the most. I live in N. California and I would be thrilled to know when the next weapons seminar is being held in la Chula. Like to refresh what I know, and see if I remember it right. :)

    Hi Chaz!! I love the philosophy of your art!! This goes along VERY well with my own personal convictions.

    If you don't mind me asking Animal Stylez...what do you like most about the philosophy? I'm just curious. :)

    Chief Chaz,

    Haven't heard from you for a while. Things are doing great here in Hawaii. Did GM Ty told you that I fought in the live stick match with Dogzilla? I had a pretty good bump on the back of my head during that match. GM Ty said I did very well and so does the rest of people who've watched it. Hope to see you soon. Take care and God Bless.

    " Derobio Escrima emphasizes disarming techniques and defensive behaviors rather than aggressive actions. The basis of Derobio is deflecting and controlling. The meeting of force with force is only used if unavoidable and is immediately translated into a more "passive" or fluid movement. The force of an attacker's blow is allowed to pass and a counter is employed from the outside, it is a defensive art that stresses disarming and rendering attacker incapable of further aggression. "

    I am a very peaceful person by nature. I detest violence (I know a contradiction for someone who loves Martial Arts :) ) and would prefer to control/subdue someone and use technique in a way to stop them and show them I have the ability to hurt them if I so choose, but am choosing not to, but if pushed I can/will.

    That's one of the reasons I chose to learn Aikido as my first MA, and hope to pick up again some day. I hope that makes sense. :D
