I'm currently training in Iaido but I am also interested in the filipino martial arts, especially Pekiti Tersia and Lameco escrima. Does anyone know of classes or schools in the north east area of Illinois. Thanks

Yeah, Ken Smith ain't too bad. He's the guy who runs the Orland park Arnis place, or one of em at least, called Islanders. I train with one of his people once in a while, and she's pretty proficient at what she does. After that, can't say I'm aware of much else.

I do actually know a Kali guy who also teaches Jeet Kune Do, and another fellow who teaches Tacosa Serrada Escrima, but anyone interested should pm me about it.
