Hi guys, As always I hope that all is well with everyone and that all are keeping quite challenged by their daily training. I just wanted to further comment on the subject matter that my Lameco Eskrima brother "Bud" Balani made reference to in his latest series of posts. In hindsite I feel that it does not matter so much what any distinct group, organization or person does solely in and of themselves in propagating Lameco Eskrima to future generations. Our survival as a system will ultimately come down to those that seek out PG Sulites knowledge and dedicate themselves to his cause and purpose as we 1st generation students have done for so many years. It does not matter how effective a combative system is for if no one has interest in learning its mysteries it quickly becomes moot. Further more without eager and dedicated young students with a strong resolve to learn and share in our passion this system is destined to die with us whom currently reside as guardians of PG Sulites legacy. We should be more welcoming to those around the world who seek out this knowledge and be thankful to them for their aspirations and dedication, for it will be what they choose to do with this knowledge which will decide if this system will last for 100 years or not... after we are all dead and gone. I can only speak for myself but to all of you that have expressed an interest in Lameco Eskrima and have dedicated yourselves to the task of unraveling its mysteries and secrets I say thank you for your interest thus far and I hope that you will continue your search in earnest and not tarry until you have mastered Lameco Eskrimas combative principles, concepts and techniques. With YOUR enthusiasm and desire we can keep PG Sulites legacy in the forefront of the Indigenous Pilipino Warrior Arts community for many years to come. Lameco Eskrima is not the sole property of any one group, organization or person but rather it was given freely to us all by the kindness and selfless actions of its founder Edgar G. Sulite. The most profound disrespect that can be shown to Edgar for all of his lifes work is to not propagate and pass on his passion for the Pilipino Warrior Arts to future generations whom seek out his combative knowledge the world over. When we train as if our life depends on it we will fight as if it does as well. Train well guys, ciao. Guro Dave Gould.
