8th_River_City_Rumble

Eskrimador, the “Rumble” is upon us!

The Filipino Martial Arts Academy (FMAA), the Doce Pares Multi-Style System West Coast headquarters will be hosting their “8th River City Rumble” tournament this coming August 30th (Saturday) at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in Sacramento.

The River City Rumble is one of the most fun and family oriented tournaments this side of the West Coast!

The events available to compete in will be traditional and modern forms competition, stick and single-stick/double-stick continuous sparring and knife/stick point-system sparring.

It’s a good opportunity to test out skills you’ve learned so far, know what works and what doesn’t, all within a contained friendly atmosphere. You’ll also get to meet other Eskrima enthusiasts and represent Los Angeles Doce Pares!

Cost wise, the first event you’ll join will be $45 and it will be $15 for each additional event thereafter. You can also join in on the bill split we’ll be organizing for the lodging, vehicle rental and gas expenses. On average, you’d spend just about $200* for one event with hotel, rental and gas all in!

Clothing & Toy Drive for Haiyan Survivors (Deadline June 15th)

Los Angeles Doce Pares Eskrima - Forex Cargo

From today until June 15: LADP / Forex Cargo clothing and toy drive for the social rehabilitation of Haiyan Survivors

Of the almost 85000 Visayan island residents of the Philippines displaced by typhoon Haiyan, most have had only the clothes they had on as they hurriedly left their homes in panicked search of safer grounds. Families are now living in temporary housing shelters provided by the Philippine government, subsidized in part by international charity organizations.

Master Erwin Mosqueda in cooperation with Forex Cargo (https://www.forexworld.us) of Long Beach thru Mr. Epifanio Fernandez (Guro Toy) will be running a used/unused clothing and toy drive from today until June 15.

Now’s a good time to check the attic or basement for “that shirt you haven’t worn since forever” and child-safe toys you’ve outgrown.

Toys and clothing can be in used or unused condition; although we do require that they be free of stains, rips, previous owner modification and have all working parts in order.

Places and times you may drop off items for donation will either be directly to Forex Cargo of Long Beach (320 W. Willow St. Long Beach CA 90806) on regular business hours or dropped off during class at any of your designated training locations.

You may coordinate with Guro Toy directly: ExxMxxF@me.com
