Mr Lazo, I had plans on attending a seminar here in Michigan to stop by and say hi and pay my respects to Dr. Remy P Presas. But, I will have to discuss this with the rest of the club now and see what they feel. If it will seem that I am now under the Good Dr. then I may not wish to attend. You see, I have met him and talked to him and like him as a person, but I prefer to no be in a large organization. I was told many things by GM Remy A Presas. My Senior in the art SM James Power was told many things as well. He choose to just teach what he had learned, and not worry about who was number one. But with your comments about being Filipino and only the Family can lead, when I know multiple people the Late Remy Presas had told were his protoge to take over. I once again feel like an outsider. I feel that if one is not Filipino then they should not teach or practice a Filipino Martial Art. While I know many Filipino's and Filipina's that have no idea what the arts are about. But those of us who are interested, and trying to do the right thing and give credit, are told they are wrong. Again, I am wrong. I hear it all day at work. I hear it all the time in the arts. Mostly from people who do not want to believe that a non Filipino could know anything about a Filipino Art. Jeff Delaney stated I had no rank as I never tested in front him. I had rank from the Late Remy Presas before he even began to train. But, in the end I was not hungry for rank or titles, I was more worried about what worked. Now for those who wanted to make it their career then titles and Rank were and are very Important. So, since your speaking for Dr. Remy Presas, should I consider my rank null and void again or by another person/group? I am not sure, what to believe. Maybe I will just call him and find out what he thinks on this subject. It might be the best idea in the end.
