The first Apprenticeship Camp on the east coast for the Original Giron Escrima Federation was held the weekend of Oct 10/14. Started off with an open session on Friday which opened the doors to what material was going to be covered throughout the weekend. There was great energy on the Friday night which continued throughout the weekend. GM Michael Giron brought us through Module #1 of the Estilo Defondo in a clear and progressive manner covering the material at a pace that allowed everybody to absorb the concepts and techniques he was teaching. The group left the weekend with a solid foundation on Module #1 and tools to allow everybody to practice the material at their prospective schools. I am looking forward to future training sessions.
