    Jack,
    I have been getting emails requesting a location for the FMA in the Rochester area.. I was wondering if I could refer them to you as they live in your area and this individual is interested in learning the FMA.

    Thanks

    Bill

    Absolutely...

    Bill--That would be fine...and thanks for the referral and vote of confidence.Incidentally, I'm not the only dealer of controlled Filipino violence in the area. There are others who your friends may find more convenient or to their liking...no harm done.-Kuya Doug Marcaida-Guro Cyndy Jones-...and at United Self Defense Center (owned by Sensei John Ingallina), there is a chap who periodically teaches a Modern Arnis program, but I don't know the details. Brain Johns, perhaps?In any event, I hope they find what they are looking for. And I also hope we get to cross sticks sometime, Bill.Best,Jack A. LatorrePSMy mistake in the original thread...it's www.millmansmartialarts.org. I had a typo...

    Hi Folks,

    If you can make a seminar with Guro Jack, i would highly recommend you attend. He is one of the finest instructors to come out of the PTI camp, both on technical merits as well as communication skills. I think you will find time in his class to be well spent.

    Regards,
    Tuhon Bill McGrath

    Jack, best of luck with your seminar series. Someday if you ever get out this way to visit your brother, I'd love to take some lessons from you!

    "Geezer"--I'm hoping to drag him to Rochester so his nephews can hang with him...and maybe learn some reasonably mild form of "Latorre-Style" aggression that has been his hallmark card for as long as I can remember. Being the little brother had it's perks...and then there was the other stuff... :)I tried getting him in touch with his inner child...but then his inner child body slammed me.Best,Jack

    Hello All--

    The first of the monthly seminars that I am offering is approaching next month (January 26th...Solo Baston Sub-System) and it appears that there is a significant interest building towards it. Although not completely necessary (I think), perhaps it would not be out of sorts to ask interested parties to send me an e-mail just to let me know if you are attending. I want to be sure we have enough space for anyone and everyone.

    Best,
