5th FMA Festival

May 17, 2010

The UK’s biggest and best Filipino martial arts seminar is back, with over 22 top styles from 20+ top FMA Instructors, Masters and Grand Masters coming together to teach you the best the FMA has to offer in the United Kingdom.

This is a rare opportunity in Europe for so many different styles and Masters to come together in brotherhood and unity to promote and teach the FMA regardless of style.

This unique event has received rave reviews year after year, and now this will be it’s 5th year which we believe will be the biggest ever so far.

If you are looking to attend only one FMA event within the next year, we would strongly recommend you do not miss out on this one. It is the best you will ever have the chance to see.

With or without martial arts experience, this is a great opportunity for you to come and try a wide variety of different styles of Filipino Martial Arts (Eskrima/Kali/Arnis) available in the United Kingdom for the first time and find yourself an Instructor if you do not already have one.

Experienced FMA’ers will also benefit from this event as you can train with a great group of open and highly experienced Instructors, exchange ideas and meet lots of like minded people who share an Interest in the Filipino Martial Arts which is a great way to network and make life long friends.

Net profits will be donated to charity and the instructors only have their accomodation and petrol paid, their weekend, all other expenses and instruction is provided for free.

Training will include: Single Stick, Double Stick, Dagger, Stick & Dagger, Long Stick, Empty Hands (Trapping & Grappling), Locks, Takedowns & Finishing Techniques.

This is an event not to be missed!

This is me last year at the 4th FMA Festival…

Silat DVDs!

May 17, 2010

A friend posted this film to me recently. The trailer looks good, but I find when I look at a lot of Indonesian silat that it all looks the same.. choreographed and theatrical. Silat seems to have gone that way since I started, with I guess Hollywood and Bollywood movies taking people towards the flash gymnastic acrobatic moves they see on screen. Tae Kwon Do is not a great street-fighting art, but is apparently more popular in Malaysia than silat. I was told it was because it was more spectacular and had flashy kicks.

Also, remember my Malaysian Silat DVD’s will be coming out soon!

Let me know what you think…

LINKING UP WITH LINCAH

Let me introduce myself.
I am Guru Glenn Lobo and am Chief Instructor of the British Silat association based in Luton, United Kingdom.

I have trained in many different forms of martial art over the years but have found Silat Lincah to be the most enjoyable and effective for me.
I run 2 classes in Luton, 1 for adults and 1 for children and get a feeling of accomplishment from both.

I aim to train my students to the best of their ability with no limitations placed on their age, sex, race or religion. After all, we live in a multi cultural world and everyone is equal.

I not only instruct Silat Lincah but also a Filipino stick art called Lightning Scientific Arnis, although some people might know this as Eskrima and have had some great success with my classes.

I have started to include my young daughters in my classes (well they’re never too young to become as great as Dad) and they thoroughly enjoy the training too.

These days we seem to read so much in the newspapers about youngsters taking their own lives due to bullying or being stabbed as they casually go about their business. I decided that the children’s classes will help teach children what it means to have respect in yourself and for others, how to stand up for your self and not be afraid to let others know what is happening to you.

Using some of my martial art skills as part of an anti bullying system. It’s not how to get out of a situation it’s more not allowing yourself to be in the situation in the first place.

I have some videos and photos that you might like to take a look at so why not click on any of the following links and then let me know what you think or whether you’d be interested in joining in one of my classes or purchasing a DVD when I finally get round to completing one.

Well, SILATS YOUR LOT for now
