    Looking for a local training partner? Whether you're interested in a regular training partner or just want to get together occasionally with others in your area who also practice the FMA, you can post your info. here for others to see. Be sure your spelling is right so the thread can be searched by location/art! Please begin your post with at least the following information (you may highlight and copy it from this message; using your real name is optional):

    Name: your real name
    Username: your FMATalk user name
    Location: city, state/province/region, country
    Arts Taught: any art you are able and willing to teach
    Arts of Interest: the FMA styles you are most interested in learning about

    After that, add additional info. if you wish. Note that the PM system allows you to be contacted without revealing your personal info. (unless you have disabled it).

    If you wish your post removed or modified at a later date, just contact a member of the staff. We'll be happy to remove it, change your location, add an art, etc.

    Please limit posts in this thread to announcements of the form indicated below. Do not use this thread for discussion; start a new thread for that. Also, this thread is not for school announcements but rather for finding peer-to-peer training partners.

    Name: Stuart Bowen (Not the President's chief advisor on reconstruction in Iraq. The other one.)
    Username: ap Oweyn
    Location: Northern Virginia
    Arts taught: Doce Pares primarily. I have some experience with Inosanto Kali and the associated arts, plus about a year's exposure to Modern Arnis, though I don't claim to teach either one.
    Arts interested: FMA in general, plus a range of other styles (e.g., muay thai and boxing)

    I have a Modern Arnis group that I train with periodically, but it's been a while since they've gotten together. I also don't have a lot of time between now and my graduation from graduate school in May. But I'd like to at least make some connections for the future.

    PDM is my empty-hand program which draws principles from both Eastern & Western combat disciplines. It relies heavily on aggressive training methodologies that will not only hone skills but develop a combat mindset.
