Great Grandmaster Ernesto Amador Presas Passes Away

Discussion in 'Kombatan' started by Alex(ander Bautista Bayot France), Oct 31, 2010.

  1. I just received a call from the Presas family. It is my sorrowful duty to announce to all Kombatan practitioners, all IPMAF members, and all my fellow FMA practitioners that Great Grandmaster Ernesto Amador Presas passed away in his sleep today in Manila (Nov. 1, 2010 in the Philippines, October 31 here in the States). I spoke with Mercy (Mrs. Presas). All she can say right now is that GGM's body will be brought back to Hinigaran. I will announce dates and times as funeral arrangements are made.

    To my teacher, my mentor, and my friend, Thank you for all you've done for me, for our people, and for martial art practitioners the world over.

    This makes far too many great FMA masters passing on in recent times. May God bless and keep him and may his family, friends, and loved ones know peace in their time of need.
