    Hello eveyone! I just want to let you know that there is a new fma system in the philippines, specifically in Mandaluyong City...It's called Abenir Kali. I am one of it's students...I just got here in u.s. as an immigrant two months ago. For a brief background, it is named after it's founder Fernando "Bong" Abenir. His day job is a Physical Education instructor in Don Bosco Mandaluyong but his number one passion is Martial arts. Aside from having developed his own kali system, he is also a certified Nusantara Pencak Silat and jiu-jitsu (traditional) instructor. He also has students in kickboxing.

    Are you a branch representative for the GM in the US?

    He's also a former Kali Illustrisimo student. I can't remember the first instructor who handled him, but he was later accepted by GM Tony Diego due to recommendation of this instructor. Then he have attended a session under the remarkable GM "Tatang" Illustrisimo himself. He witnessed the art's founder first hand!

    Well I'm not sure of his martial art training before he study KI. If I'm not mistaken, I think he also trained in modern arnis for a while.

    Aside from the frozen uke, I like his explosive and direct approach. Nothing overly fancy even with the knife. Nice!

    uhmmm i am very sorry for the late reply! you missed the fma picnic at up diliman. it was really good experience to know some people that are also studying fma...man i had the chance to talk to other practioneers of kali and silat. the muslim people who are studying the silat from mindanao are great...and they are friendly too. ive seen the barong for the first time and it was great.:D as for abenir kali we just show case in the fma picnic what we can do to give a fresh insite about our art. i hope someone could release the video taken up in up so you can see how sir bong beat me! hahahaha but it was hella a sparring in front of those great guys in the fma world. i hope youll have a sparring with sir bong...it was hella awakening to know that techniques are not learned through ages of drills but by trying it out in an actual sparring.
