We had a guest visit the gym last night. Joe Marana from Inland Empire FMA came up from Southern California to train with us last night. Joe is an Associate Instructor in Sayoc Kali, an Apprentice Instructor in Atienza Kali and has rank in Inosanto FMA and Doce Pares Eskrima. Joe started with the Sayoc LA school, run by Travis Downing and Joey Pena before starting up his own group.
It’s always good to train with people from other Sayoc groups to see how they move and how they interpret the material. Seeing variations from other instructors can help you put your own pieces of the puzzle together as you develop.
Last night, Joe helped us further develop some of the material based on Panantukan Set 1 that I learned at Sayoc Camp 505 this month.
Thanks for the visit, Joe!
