    The event was a smashing success in many respects.

    This event brought several old aquaintances & a few old friends together in a harmonious exposition of phenominal talent as demonstrated
    by Guro Nate Defensor.


    Guro Defensor put on a great exposition of stick fighting & stick grappling that provided even the seasoned FMA stylist with great new
    technique to add to the tool box.


    It was my distince pleasure to be a part of such an event. Gracious as I've always known Guro Wes Bennett to be, he has not changed a bit.

    Even more a pleasure was spending the time on the floor with my primary influence in Cabales Serrada Escrima, Pangulong Guro Chuck Cadell.
    Although Guro Chuck and I often visit over the phone, it is a rare
    occasion that we are on the floor crossing sticks.


    This event was particulary momentous for me as I had the privilige of acknowledging 3 of the most influential FMA stylists in the Midwest
    Region & in Illinois particularly.


    As the Midwest Director/Administrator of the WSEF it was my distince pleasure to present lifetime achievement awards to both Guro Nate
    Defensor & Guro Wes Bennett for their efforts in the past decades as
    well as their present efforts to promote the FMA systems.


    Additionally, a great honor for me was to present my influence of many years in the system of Cabales Serrada Escrima, Pangulong Guro Chuck
    Cadell with a WSEF "Honorary Grand Master's Certificate in his system of
    Tanikala de Serrada Escrima".


    Please acknowledge and applaud with me the many years of dedication all 3 of these fine gentlemen have provided for all within the FMA.
