Beach and Eskrima are two of my favorite things. Put them together and it’s a happiness explosion. Make it a sunrise or a sunset background and it’s heaven. We didn’t get the last one, but still it was pure joy.
The past couple of days of our 3-day Balintawak Eskrima training were a bit gloomy and stormy. Fortunately, we were blessed with a fine weather on our last day in Cebu—ideal for seaside training. So after our morning training and breakfast, Master V brought us to a nearby beach. Yay!
The peacefulness of the sea plus the ruggedness of Filipino martial arts. Oh how I love the irony yet baffled by it. There, we trained and sparred some more, devoured great food and enjoyed the scenery. Moments spent like these are gold!

I may have said this before, but I’ll say it again, I’m really lucky and happy to have met people who are also crazy about this art that I adore. Let’s keep talking and sharing about it, and of course, practicing and promoting it at the same time—that includes you, my dear reader! Cheers to FMA! 😀
