    I'm not really sure if it was the same tournament Tom Bisio won since there was a series, one was held in Cebu and the other in Manila (that's as far as I know) and my knowlege of the specifics of that tournament (when/where) is based primarily on books. There were likewise divisions... the "legends" fought in the Master's division which was for those 40 or 50 years and older (I think).

    I'm not sure if GT Gaje was 40+ by that time (I think he was still in his 30's). Yes, it would have been nice had GT Gaje fought as well. But GT Gaje is of the generation which is younger than those who fought (Mang Ben, GM Timor Maranga, etc.). His nearest counterparts generation-wise would probably have been the likes of GM Tony Diego, GM Porferio Lanada, GM Nene Tortal, GM Ernesto Presas, GM Diony Canete etc. The generation who fought in that Master's tournament are either in their 80's, 90's today, or have passed away. As a matter of fact, it I'm not mistaken I believe it is only GM Cacoy who remains from that "generation."

    Maestro Elmer told me before he died that he was asking the Cañetes of Cebu for a copy of the video. Also it was part of the movie Sticks of Death where-in the fight was shown together with the opening credits, it was a beautiful fight by two Grandmasters, i had a chance of viewing it on the movie. I remember our house full of posters of the said movie since my uncle and father were extras with Mang Ben. Also Mang Vic Sanchez was also there and was also a witness to the actual fight between Mang Ben and GM Marangga.

    Maestro Elmer told us about the GM Maranga vs. Mang Ben fight as well. I would love to see video of this if anyone has access to it.

I'm not an instructor in LSA (and LSMAPC) but I'm only a passionate of this incredible art. My actual gym proposed me to add the LSA "as an optional complement" to their actual programm (Inosanto System) wich is the main system that they teach. It's means that they don't use the art to make money on it. Here is the website where you can find some videos : www.aka-ge.ch . There's also a short presentation of the LSA but I'm not sure if it's completely correct. Please feel free to give your comment so I can modify the text.

    Best regards all and I hope to meet you.

    Hi guys!!! Just found this forum...so great to finally have one gathering place for all LSAI practitioners. My name is Carlo Lamagna and have trained with Mang Ben and Guro elmer since 96. Just trying to re-establish my connection with old friends and possible future training partners. I've been teaching privately here in the U.S. for the past 7 years but have stopped for a while to finish school. Hope to meet some of you soon. Take Care

    if rules hasn't changed yet, the tournament is open strictly to LSAI practitioners only. the last fight format used was interesting... using a checking hand was allowed to use which i believe is a trademark of LSAI.
