Ok! Check it out! My older brother and dear friend Hanshi Manny Saavedra is running his yearly event. I would most definitely advise you and your's to attend. Time was when I helped run this thing, and I can assure you that Manny has a quality = underststement event. If you would like to compete in a tournament that placing in has meaning... then this is the one! No bullsh!t, REAL people judging and officiating, and a guy, who has been around since before your parents met. So... If my word means anything to you, do support GMstr. Manny Saavedra's event, or be the square that you are...
Beginning JuJitsu training in 1965 and KaraTe in 1968, I have been active since. My JuJitsu teacher was Victor J. Malanoski, Kaiden ShobuDo Ryu and my KaraTe teacher was Maestro Peter G. Urban, founder of USA / Urban GoJu KaraTe.
