After reading some threads on this site as well as MT, I'm very deeply moved at how closely knit the Balintawak community is. Mr. Ceniza posted a lot of interesting information about the origins of Balintawak, but I'm curious...how did the art come to the states? What is it that has attracted people to the art? Or, if you train in Balintawak, what is it that has held your interest about the art? I'm curious to see what you all have to share.
