    Narrie Babao

    I was thinking of taking Arnis de Mano from him. Does anybody know how he is as a teacher? Thanks.

    I believe he's here in San Diego and I've heard good things about him. The only thing I've heard from him was a random funny anecdote from my dad: back in his carpet laying days (decades ago), my dad was carpeting Mr Babao's house. He said his wife was scantily clad and flirting with the guys, and Narrie started to have an angry conversation with her that was kind of awkward to listen to, even though it wasn't in English. I was amused that it was about a guy that I'd heard of. I got my Filipino Martial Culture book and showed my dad a picture of the guy, and he had a good chuckle. Anyway, I don't mean to say anything negative about the guy. If I was looking for an FMA instructor in southern California, I'd look him up and be grateful for the opportunity to train with him.

    Haha. Wow, the things you learn. Yeah, he teaches out of his house in Paradise Hills. It's probably the same house, maybe even the same carpet!
