When I met real life Guerilla's who employed Kali as their means to retaliate against the Japanese during WW2 in the Jungles of Samar, my appreciation for the FMA's was heightened.
I met 2 men who were real fighters and their stories......one of them was
A Warrior I fondly called;
Tatay Domingo .
Tatay as I fondly called him lived in my grandfather's property in Cawa Maitum Saranggani Province in the Island of Mindanao , for so many years as I can remember - a stone throw away from my ancestral home in the said locality. He has seen me grow up and brag about my Karate - until that day when I showed off my
FMA ..skills and I saw Tatay Domingo Smiling and told me -
'Mao nang Tinuod nga Pangamut '
(that's what I call real hand to hand fighting)'
But their stories were as real to me as to them. I have witnessed real guerilla fighters- who are not self proclaimed Grandmasters - real warriors - who used their skills and in real life against all odds.
I spent all the time I could get getting training from these men-until they could not teach me anymore.
This to me is a ' LEGACY' handed down to me by these great men - heroes to me .
Not merely stories , but I witnessed their prowess in spite of their old age - a testament that
REAL - again REAL Filipino Martial Arts
are for the regular citizens- these will be a lasting memory- even if no one remembers them I do and will always be thankful to these great warriors.

Thank you for the invitation! Leo C. Quilaton, and Grand Master Larry Ordonio.
It was a Great privilage and a wonderful experience to train in the ethics of Authentic Kali and Filipino Martial Arts ,to have recived the hands on training , and I think It is a rariety In Houston to find Authentic Filipino Martial Arts .
This combat Art Has a lot to offer If people will open there minds and give it a fare chance ,rather than the conventional Karate or the fad or trend of MMA.
