The seminar portion of the Pacific Island gathering is today, I could make it for The dekiti tirsia siradas portion but had to leave early. Grand Master Jerson Tortal was a pleasure to watch. For anyone interested in Kali/escrima/arnis in Illinois, GM Tortal's student, John Bednarski not only is hosting the gathering but he conducts regular classes at the midway kodenkan. I have trained with a few kali instructors and I have to say he knows what he is doing. I'll post tomorrow with the results from the fighting portion of the gathering.
