Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all,
We here at ARNIS Tendencia (TM) are still practicing and training for the upcoming year. The latest news is the recent
promotion of Kajukenbo Master Professor Alejandro Elias. Professor Elias was awarded his 8th Degree. A very prestigeous award.
Of course as modest as Professor Elias is, Professor Elias said "he did not feel qualified". But the Kajukenbo
association felt differently. Rest assured Professor Elias IS fully qualified and we all here at ARNIS TENDENCIA TM Congradulate
him on achieving this monumental goal. Professor Elias is currently taking students at this time.
There is a "loose" plan out about Maestro Guillory visiting the west coast in January 2012
but I will post this news as things develop. At that time there is talk of filming some of the basic stick, judo and jiu jitsu
moves. So stay tuned, If anyone has a question you can e-mail me. Randy Pizarro at Metricelectric@sbcglobal.net, or Call me on my cell (626)379-0847 leave a message and I will call back.
then. Everyone have a Happy and Safe Christmas, and a prospherous New Year,

Belated Happy New Year to all:
It has been a little while since our last update. As most of you know Maestro David Guillory has relocated to the
Tuscon AZ area. His Cell number is (520)271-3719. He and Professor Alex Elias are now practicing together on a semi regular
basis and Professor Elias is being asked about opening a self defense school. I will post more as this develops. I ran an
article titled "Why practice?" I outlined that in the prisons, I have seen prisoners practice disarm and upright
This is nothing new as even as far back as the BC times we
were to take up arms in defense of what is right and if we did not have a sword to sell our cloak to get one (Luke 22:36-38).
King Edward III in a letter:
The King to the Lord-lieutenant of Kent greeting:
Whereas the people of our realm,
rich and poor alike, were accustomed formerly in their games to practise archery - whence by God's help, it is well known
that high honour and profit came to our realm, and no small advantage to ourselves in our warlike enterprises - and that now
skill in the use of the bow having fallen almost wholly into disrepute, our subjects give themselves up to the throwing of
stones and of wood and of iron; and some to handball and football and hockey; and others to coursing and cock-fights, and
even to other unseemly sports less useful and manly; whereby our realm - which God forbid - will soon, it would appear, be
void of archers:
We, wishing that a fitting remedy be found in this matter, do hereby ordain, that in all places
in your country, liberties or no liberties, wheresoever you shall deem fit, a proclamation be made to this effect: that every
man in the same country, if he be able-bodied, shall, upon holidays, make use, in his games, of bows and arrows… and
so learn and practise archery.
Moreover we ordain that you prohibit under penalty of imprisonment all and sundry
from such stone, wood and iron throwing; handball, football, or hockey; coursing and cock-fighting, or other such idle games.
