    Apolo Ladra eh? He used to be my taekwondo teacher (about 20 years ago). I didn't realize he'd gotten into the stick sparring. I know his brother Bobby got into teaching FMA a while back. Haven't seen those guys in years.

    If the Bobby Ladra/Ladro that you are referring to teaches in Maryland, then it could be the same instructor that my brother BB studies with now in Baltimore.

    Yep. That's him. Last I visited them, they were in Glen Burnie, about 20 minutes outside of Baltimore (and one town over from where I grew up).

    Rich Curren has nothing but nice things to say about him. I don't know if they have gone already or it is happening in the future, but I remember Rich mentioning a trip to the PI with B. Ladro to make introductions and play tour guide. Lucky stiff.

    That's excellent. As I say, I haven't clapped eyes on him in about 15 years. Since they were just starting to get into teaching FMA.
