I have patented the "harsh glare" used when "vegetables" are put on my plate. I will trade you that patent for the double hammer fist one, because "guess who" keeps putting them damn vegetables on my plate.

After a year or so, you to can become a "Guru" and charge $150ish per hour to teach those moves yourself. Don't get me wrong, I am not endorsing engaging in pyramid schemes, and I am not saying that I have seen any legal evidence that what they are doing is a pyramid scheme. But I must say that I certainly don't know ANY moves that are THAT valuable.
Yes, they tried to sell our club on that.
Anyone in Kitsap County who wants to study traditional FMA should check out the Full Circle Fight Club MMA gym, their FMA lineage is traced directly to Dan Inosanto if I understand correctly. Dave Bird in Gig Harbor covers some pretty extensive Kali. A boat ride away and you have Seattle Modern Arnis, who are at least making a sincere effort at sparring, last I heard. Lots of good traditional FMA in the Northwest, and sean michael's style is a serious blight on that scene.
Thank you all for tolerating my troll hunt. I will avoid doing this again.
sean michael - you had your chance to explain yourself, and you failed. Any further feedback from you is unwelcome: please do NOT leave any more visitor comments on my Bullshido.net profile.

so wait, that guy there is actually the sean michael who is posting here?
question, whats up with having a book attached to the back of your helmet?
who is who? is Sean Micheal the guy with espada y daga?
When sean michael would have seen the logo, the three swords would have been a Kukri, a Gim, and a Sabre. I wonder what part of China he thinks sabres and Kukris come from, and I wonder how he got less knowledge about weapons than the average 9th grade D&D player.

So by sparring I presume he means going at less than half speed, light contact, with real wooden weapons. From what I gather this might be a legit FMA drill, but so is sinawali, which is also not sparring. Drills can be great, but sparring they aren't.
That foam in the back of the helmet is for protecting the back of the neck from "wrap strikes." Right now we are focusing on trying to figure out how to protect an even more important target: the front of the neck. Suggestions welcome.
