ESKABO DAAN/Presents GM Robert Castro Honed in Serrada Escrima/Lock & Block by Matedor KaliEscrima

ESKABO DAAN/ Presents GM Robert Castro Honed in Serrada Escrima/ Lock & Block
Back around the year 2000, prior to flying into Berlin, Germany, SGM D, conducted a special 'D/C Serrada System of Escrima' seminar at the San Francisco, California, home/dojo location of Grandmaster Guru Rob Castro. This was just one pre seminar stop-over out of many that SGM D, conducted before his international departure. 

Today Many of GM Castro's students have gone on to become recognized FMA Instructor's in their own rights. The blessings, gifts & ancient techniques of the 'Cabales Serrada System of Escrima were first bequeathed over to the legendary Great Grandmaster Guru Angel O. Cabales by way of his Guru/ teacher Felicisimo Dizon in the Philippines, then from GGM Angel Cabales to his many hundreds of graduate students, then from his students, to their students. In this way, the ancient fighting system has been preserved from one generation to the next possibly for many hundreds of years. 

This art was kept secret by GGM Angel Cabales, until he opened up the very first public Escrima school in Stockton, California, in 1966. Many students came through Cabales' academy doors such as, Professor Leo T. Fong, Guro Dan Inosanto, GM Richard Bustillo, GM Ted Lucaylucay, GM Graciela Casillas, GM Darren Tibon, Master David Mau, Prof. Sultan Uddin, GM Ron Saturno, GM Wade Williams, SGM Anthony Davis, Master Guru Jeff, Dr. Mark V. Wiley, Jeff Finder, and scores of others.
