…..Recently I had the pleasure of hosting “The Gathering” here in Alma, Michigan. One of the presenter’s at this event was Rich Parsons. Rich is a long time Modern Arnis practitioner who studied directly under Remy Presas and Jim Powers at the Flint Dojo. Rich also had the opportunity to study with Manong Ted Buot of Balintawak. Manong Ted was a direct student of Anciong Bacon and taught at the main school in the Philippines when Grand Master Bacon was not teaching. At “The Gathering” Rich taught some Balintawak that really captured the participants excitement for the Filipino Martial Arts. Rich is a dear friend and a mentor/brother at arms of mine in the martial sciences. His method of teaching is fantastic in that everyone learns something when he presents his material.
Here is his website: Rich Parsons
Here is a short video clip of some of Rich Parsons teaching style.
See You On The Mats!
