    I would imagine that most ended up in California and Hawaii do to the fact that when traveling to America from the Philippines, those are the first places you would land.
    Oops, you're right. I've been mishmashing some history together. I should be more careful.

    I'll take Lea Salonga, or Kuh Ledesma, or Pops Fernandez for Inosanto!

    Bullshit

    Wado, Shihan sparred often (and as a Japan champ, was very patient with n00bs)
    Shotokan Sensei sparred often, let the browns beat up the n00bs
    Kyokushin Sensei beat the **** out me often ((and as Hawaiian champ, was very patient with n00bs)
    Chirioku Sensei threw me on my ass often
    Kosho Shorei Ryu Kempo Shihan broke my nose once (I WAS trying to take his head off) and was sure willing to "get it on."
    etc etc etc

    The only class where the teacher wouldn't spar was Shihan Bobby Lowe of KK HI and his sempai took care of me.

    Dan Inosanto makes me proud to be a Filipino. He shares a deeper knowledge of Filipino culture and history than most of our countrymen possess.

    Rehashing Fillipino-related things I've said in other threads:

    that blood soup is awful/gross/pretty good with puffy rice balls.

    slightly pudgy pinoy chicks are soooo hot.... drool.

    Most fillipino people I've met have really great attitudes. I asked a fillipino friend about it.
    me - not to stereotype, but all the flips I meet are REALLY HAPPY.
    her - their happy because they arn't in the Phillipines anymore!
    /coldbooded

    Now, more serious: I've heard rumors that western boxing began to change after WW2 because american GIs trained with fillipino boxers who had a base in FMA. THis led to more head movement and more sophisticated angling and footwork.

    Any thoughts/opinions/resources on this? True? True but distorted? Evil FMA propaganda?

    PS - not that any of you asked: a student of mine (I teach massage therapy) gave me an AMAZING antique kampilan from his father's collection. Its pretty much my prized possession, and I feel like I need to get into some FMA - out of respect for the blade if nothing else.

    The impact of of Fillipino style on boxing as a whole is far under rated, in addition to the GI's seeing it first hand, you also had many Fillipino immigrants settling in and around New York starting around the late forties when NYC was a mecca for boxing.

    As an FMA convert after about 25 years of inferior training, I would wholeHEARTEDLY like to lend my support to the 'Let's just talk about the womenz' cause.

    I'd love to take a trip to the PI, but I fear all training time would be wasted oogling womenz.

    (Not that that'd be any different than the rest of my life.)
