    Just wondering if anyone is going to make it across to the 2nd IPMAF World Abroad Camp being hosted in Gothenburg, Sweden this year by Master Johan Skalberg?

    This is the second time that this camp has been held the first being held in Melbourne, Australia in 2006.

    These camps are to be held every second year rotating through the major Kombatan Arnis territories and supplementing the camps that are held in the Philippines every second year by Grand Master Presas. The 3rd camp in 2010 will most likely be held in the United States.

    The special guests for this camp are GGM Ernesto Presas and Master Michael Ermac. The camp is being run for one full week and should be a lot of fun. There are 7 members of Kombatan Australia (at last count) heading over so looking forward to catching up with as many of you as possible at the camp.

    I'm great mate.. have been doing a lot of traveling for work am currently sitting in Singapore Airport as i type this but am really looking forward to catching up with everyone again in Sweden.

    Its great to hear that you will be there with a few more friends from Portugal this time. Master Andy, Chris, Angie, Mick, myself (who were all in the Philippines last year) and a few others will be at the camp.

    Should be a great experience have never been over to Sweden before so should be good in more ways then one ;)

    just thought i would add a link to the blog that has been set-up for the camp in Sweden. It has been great to train with GM Presas and Master Michael Again.

    The training has been awesome and the event and hospitality of the Kombatan Sweden students has been second to none.

    Only a few more days to go but safe to say that the camp has been a huge success.

    Big thanks has to go out to Grand Master Johan Skalberg for organising a great event.

    Mate at the moment we only really have the AMOK camp in September in Thailand and the IPMAF camp in the Philippines again in April (2009) next year.

    Would love to make it over to Europe again for some of the IKAEF events but am going to concentrate on trying to get Kombatan moving in Singapore over the next few months.

    it was great seeing you again in Sweden. Always a pleasure to train with you mate. Pass my regards to Paulo.

    Hopefully I can see you both in the Philippines next year for another crazy time (that goes for you as well Richie).

    Have fun in Portugal with Master Andy and be sure to post some photo's of the seminar on the site so that we can see what you two got up to.

    Stay well mate!
