As you may have
read from the "Latest News" it is true that Master Sam has passed on, This site is dedicated to keeping his legacy
and memory alive. Master Sam is going to be given a military heros' funeral and then cremated. His ashes will rest in the
Tendencias' family home in the Philippines.
This closes the door on 31years of history for me. Now it is up to myself and the
ARNIS Tendencia TM disciples to carry on the legacy of the man that gave us so much.
I will continue with Master Sams' fundamentals in ARNIS as these are "war" proven techniques.
I have heard by "some" that these techniques are plain and simple. Master Sam drilled us on the basics, Block, Check,
Early on in my ARNIS career, I was fortunate enough to have trained many military,
police and security personnel with the Supreme Master. He would also "prove" his technique by an "exchange
of views" I did many of these exchange sessions. So I also know these techniques work.
I have had the chance to ask The Supreme Master
MANY times "Sam, is this what you did in the war?"
time the answer was "yes" or "of course" or "Oh how many times I..."
Master Sam was
a proud man to have served his country, but he NEVER boasted at how many men he had to put down in battle. He did tell the
story but he always added how lucky I was that god spared me from having to do what he did.
I hope this sheds a little light on the man that
many say they know but really know nothing about.
