About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Take Chances...

ABOUT ME

I am from the Philippines but permanently live in Vancouver (soon will be a Canadian).

I'm honest, open-minded and love to know new people. I love having fun and I like being out of town and traveling around the world.

I'm a humorous person who is also sportive(played Judo and Basketball).

I also like to try new things. Always ready to help. I'm frank and direct. If I have to say something I just say it. I'm really kind and easy going if people are the same with me.

PHILOSOPHY

Art is the expression of the self. The more complicated and restricted the method, the less the opportunity for expression of one's original sense of freedom. Though they play an important role in the early stage, the techniques should not be too mechanical, complex or restrictive. If we cling blindly to them, we shall eventually become bound by their limitations. Remember, you are expressing the techniques and not doing the techniques. If somebody attacks you, your response is not Technique No.1, Stance No. 2, Section 4, Paragraph 5. Instead you simply move in like sound and echo, without any deliberation. It is as though when I call you, you answer me, or when I throw you something, you catch it. It's as simple as that — no fuss, no mess. In other words, when someone grabs you, punch him. To me a lot of this fancy stuff is not functional.
