    great news

    Grandmaster Taboada, Congratulations.

    When I was in town you graciously let me come over to your house and train with you and your students/instructors. You, Robert and all your students made me feel welcome as a guest and a student.

    With your dedication, knowledge and goodwill I am not surprised by this award for you. You are a great role model and influence to all in martial arts.

    Thank you.

    Thank you all

    To all my students and friends in martial arts all over the world: Thank you everyone for all your congratulatory wishes on my being selected "man of the year" by the fma digest. Special thanks to grandmaster steven dowd for believing in me.

    This award is very meaningful to me since i earned it through hard work and determination. I want to honor the memory of my long deceased mentors, grandmaster teofilo velez, grandmaster jose villacin and the great grandmaster anciong bacon by sharing this award with them. Now i can tell them that the promise i made to them to promote balintawak to the world has become a reality!

    To all my students, this award is yours too as much as mine. Thank you for your patience, loyalty and friendship. Be a good example to the next generation.

    From my heart
    you are welcome
    with respect

    grandmaster bobby taboada
