    I just wanted to drop everyone a quick message to say hello and voice how proud and glad I am that there is such support, interest and dedication to all FMA.

    I am looking into training full time in FMA and recently visited Guro Jun's academy at Kali De Leon. If anyone else has any suggestions of where I can get quality instruction, it would be most appreciated!

    Welcome! You're in Toronoto? There are a number of schools there...Mr. Hartman, who is in Buffalo, will know who is there, but is busy this weekend with the Buffalo WMAA Modern Arnis camp that starts tonight. It features Modern Arnis, Kombatan, and Dekiti Tirisa Siradas, as well as a little non-FMA, so if you're free you should check it out!

    Hey Fenom,

    how goes the training? You hit it pretty good with Guro Jun, he's likely just about the best in Toronto for the Filipino arts. A great instructor with a true love for the arts he's teaching.

    Training is going well and I'm learning alot. Yes, Guro Jun is an incredible source for FMA and I am lucky and feel privilaged to be able to learn from him. Also his students and the atmosphere makes for a great training environment.

    Nice to hear from you and hope your seminar goes well!
