FTMA Gathering | March 12, 2016 | ITAK CLOTHING

We attended the Fierce Tiger Martial Arts School's Annual Gathering this past weekend. This is our 2nd year attending this event, and we were excited since this was the event we first introduced our brand to the public. It has been a year since then, and I'm just glad to be back to where it all started.

There were different instructors that attended and shared their knowledge and passion for their arts. There were instructors that shared Silat and of course Eskrima. Special thanks to GM Carlito Bonjoc from Mata Sa Bagyo sharing his knowledge with every one. (Unfortunately, just my luck my battery in my camcorder ran out right when he was about to start, so I only got photos of him) Thank you to the instructors from Inayan Eskrima, who came down and shared their style with the rest of us. It was nice talking to them as well about eskrima in general and the future generations of this art. There were different practitioners that came all the way from the bay area and also from Arizona. 

And for this event, we introduced our new release "Free Flow" tee. Free flow or Counter for Counter term is mostly used in Serrada System. This is also known as Sumbrada. 

 

The 2nd part of this event is a banquet mostly for the family and friends of FTMA. It has been 30 years since this organization started and they had a celebration. GM Carlito Bonjoc did a demo showcasing the combative arts of the Filipino stickfighting. 

This is a clip of some of the highlights that happened this weekend. I want to thank you for all the people that came by our table and said hi. And of course, a special thank you to FTMA school and GM Gilbert "Mr. C" Cordoncillo for having us.
