Discussion in 'Lightning Scientific Arnis' started by arnisador, Jun 1, 2007.
By request, we've created a forum for LSA. Enjoy!
The Wikipedia entry for this art is very short:
Looking forward to learning more about this system. I've always thought the name sounded cool, and I do recall reading an article in FMA Magazine a long time ago about the system. Now I'm off to look for clips on YouTube...
as a practitioner and member of the system,thank you for creating this thread
and thank you for welcoming us to the FMA talk family.
Lightning Scientific Arnis is an awesome and very effective art. I got the chance to witness Mang Ben in his prime. Did not get to train with him. But at least knew him personally to ask him for his opinions.
There are alot of great players in this system such as Master Jon Escudero, Master Phil Buena, Eric Mejia, Edwin Ybanez, and the Seattle group(sorry forgot their names).
Welcome to FMATalk!
Where did you meet Mang Ben?
The Seattle group(I believe)is still going strong.
Lightning is spreading in the U.S.
I believe there is a school in S.California and someone teaching in Kansas.
It is great to know that you have a forum dedicated to Mang Ben's system. Great !! :coolyello
Yes, but we need more content! Please encourage knowledgeable individuals to post!

The cup is held on or around Mang Ben's birhday,March 19.
