    North American Kombatan Conference & Training Camp September 24th & 25th, 2010 Lake Tahoe, California

    I'm proud to announce that the North American Chapter of GGM Ernesto Presas’ Kombatan organization will hold its 1st North American Conference. This event will take place on the sunny shores of Lake Tahoe, California. It’s been quite some time since GGM Ernesto Presas has been able to visit us in North America and with today’s economy it is difficult for our members to make the bi-yearly trip to the Philippines. So the senior members of the Kombatan community have decided to take matters into their own hands by hosting this event. This is a great opportunity to be heard and have some input in the future of Kombatan in North America.

    Here is the information for the camp so far:

    That's great news. Anybody knows when the last time GM Ernesto Presas was in the USA?

    Tim and Rick,
    Is the camp a benefit for GM Presas' hospital bills?
    If so, I'll try and make it and see about bringing some of my people.

    The camp was awesome. All of the masters had so much knowledge to share, everything was well presented. The instructors created an awesome program that complemented each other's specialty. Not to mention that each teacher gave alot of attention to the details of the materials presented, even making many rounds around the class to ensure that all of the participants are brought to par or as close as possible to the needed necessary skill to perform what was taught. Any questions was answered in the simplest ways that is brought to a common sense level that everyone can understand. Aside the masters present at this camp, the attendees with the exception of a few beginners are formidable warriors in their own right, many are instructors or assistants themselves. The amount of skill and knowledge present at the camp was awe inspiring, but what was even more remarkable is that despite the capabilities of masters and students is the camaraderie among all. Everyone had a blast learning from one another as well as working with each other. AWESOME!!!!!
