What an amazing weekend! GM Bobby Taboada’s World Camp and 70th Birthday Celebration was a blast. We started off with FQIs showing 2-3 techniques then sessions with GM Sam Buot, GM Ver Villasin, GM Nene Gaabucayan, GM Nick Elizar, Ama Raffy Pambuan, Master Eugene Nepangue, Datu Tim Hartman, Tuhon Ray Dionaldo and finally, GM Bobby Taboada – calling each FQIs for the demo then drilling back on to basics.
Thank you GM Bobby for hosting a great event and thanks to all the FQIs that assisted and made sure the event went smoothly.
