    Interestingly I have heard very little of Limalama actually being practiced in American Samoa. The only instructors I've ever heard of going there were ones that were fleeing authorites. Best bet would be to ask about Limalama or Lua Fist while out there. The Kenpo guys out there would likely know if there are any Limalama masters around.

    Thanks. Really, I'm not too picky about what I take. I've done lots of stuff with lots of people. If I manage to find anything I can afford and have time for, I'll consider myself lucky. Lua would be fun- there's elements of it in danzan ryu jujistu. And I've done kenpo, and liked it. I'd be happy with that. Or even, dare I say it, boring old judo. Just something to get me doing stuff with other big guys.

    My first taste of full contact fighting was at a Lima Lama Tourney in Mexico after
    A friend of mine, a student at IMAU Lima Lama, invited me to participate.
    I have been a fan of Lima Lama ever since.

    What are your thought on IMAU LL in Monterrey?
    DO thye has teh r34l?
    Dragon, Donorean would either of you mind posting videos of "GOOD" Lima Lama?

    Found a video titled "This is IMUA Lima Lama".
    How convenient.

    My own opinion is:
    that the music fucking sucks.
    Techniques shown aren't too flashy(def see the TKD in there)
    The sparring seems to be Kyokushin rules while fully padded.
    Which I found very wierd when I competed.

    I wish I had some "Good" videos. By good I assume full contact sparring and I can't find anything of that. (Really wish I had the foresight to film myself and my students when I had the chance!).

    Not necessarily full contact sparring, but at least some not so flashy techniques.

    Ok Beak that I can help a bit with I hope. This first one is Master Lugo demoing some Splashing Palm techniques. Its partner compliant drills but its a "cleaner" look at what Limalama should resemble.



    This one is an old video (transferred from 8mm if I recall) of the late Master "Tiny" Lefiti



    Last but not least is a video of the late Grandmaster Tino himself demoing some Limalama techniques, I think this was filmed in either the 60s or 70s.
