Masters, instructors, competitors, and guests, let me be the first to invite you to the Way of the Stick and Blade: Tournament of Filipino Martial Arts to be held on Friday thru Sunday November 12-14th, 2010 at the luxurious Pasadena Hilton. This tournament is geared to promote and propagate the Filipino Martial Arts through competition. It is our hope to help give experience to any first time competitors as well as provide those long time practitioners an open venue to test and hone their skills. We will be highlighting three forms of competition: Forms/ Sayaws, Full Contact Stick Fighting and Mixed Weapons Padded Blade sparring. Forms/ Sayaws and Full Contact Stick Fighting follow the rules and regulations of the World Eskrima Kali Arnis Federation (WEKAF), currently the largest competitive Filipino Martial Arts organization in the world. This part of the event will be held on Saturday. The Mixed Weapons Padded Blade Sparring is a fairly new but exciting competition highlighting the use of single blade, double blade, and blade and shield… all padded blades of course. This event will strictly be on Sunday though Guro Victor Gendrano Jr. who is running this part of the event will be giving a demonstration of the format on Saturday.

All competitors who pre-register before Saturday October 23rd, 2010 and the heads of their schools will receive a tournament shirt and a 3-day PMX Convention pass. Unfortunately for those who miss this deadline they will have to pay additional for these two items as well as increased costs for registration. So make sure you send your registration in early!!!
