    magandang araw po sa inyong lahat...
    very warm greetings mga maestros, guros, and filipino arts enthusiasts, from the freezing country of Russia!

    ako po'y dugong pilipino, na kahit malayo sa bayan ay nagmamahal pa rin ng tunay at hindi nakalilimot sa lupang kinagisnan. sana ay tanggapin ninyo ako ng buo sa inyong mga puso.

    ako po si Daniel Mumbakki Foronda II
    isang negosyante, sports injury therapist, at tapat na tagapagtaguyod ng sining pilipino dito po sa bansang Russo.

    nais ko pong makisama sa inyong pagpupulong, kung ako po'y bukas palad ninyong tatanggapin.

    maraming salamat po.

    Thank you all for the welcome. FMA in russia is well known and the practitioners are really agressive. Well, history dictates that this is how they fought the wars and so it is not surprising that they practice it with angst.
    Phil Mar, you wont believe kabayan... here in moscow the temp plays around -10 to -18 only on good days. Everytime I fly to Ekaterinburg, the temperature can drop up to -40 and it's really terrible and i can't drive due to very slippery roads.

    Well, a small detail about myself though, I work in the Department of Tourism here in Moscow and whenever possible i do practice kali and spend the rest of my hours painting and riding downhill with my bike.
    I own a knife and blade company called Mumbakki Blades Inc. and I have a small factory in the Northern Philippines, and an even smaller shop in Schipol Netherlands.

    As to why I still have to work here in Russia... I decided to live here (a long story) and I don't feel good when i am not doing anything. So I might as well do something and it wont hurt to earn, di ba? :)
    You can see me doing funny things in if you'll access my name in the search box. In person, i am really a funny guy and I don't dwell much on misseries.

    I get my discipline from the principles of FMA, and living in those principles can truly help a person combat the real challenges in all aspects of life.

    maraming salamat pong muli sa inyong pagtanggap. Those of you who wish to put up their own knife companies, contact me and i can help you.

    Mabuhay Po!

    Kamusta mumbaki, at mabuti sumali ka dito sa FMA talk.

    Very glad that you are doing well there, and spreading the art in Russia. I am glad that the Russians are open to learning our art. Keep well god bless, be safe, and stay cool.

    It was a pleasure meeting you in the Philippines during the PTK course. What an experience that was. Palawan was really nice too.. and was total luxury (a bed and a shower) compared to tents. When I got home I wanted to be back in the jungle training! What an adventure..

    Have fun in Russia, and stay warm. One good thing about cold is - no stinging plants.. ;)
