    Master Christopher "Topher" Ricketts of Bakbakan International passed away this morning after a battle with cancer. He was only 55 years of age. He was one of the founders of Bakbakan, and also one of Tatang Illustrisimo's students, having studied under him along with Tony Diego, Yuli Romo and Edgar Sulite.

    I had many conversations via the phone with Mang Tops these past 2 years. His wisdom was inspiring and he was always so supportive. He truly was a humble man who loved what he did and he wanted to share that. He shall be missed . . . as of now he is flowing with Tatang once again!
