I started with Martial Arts in 1980. My first experience with Filipino Kali was in 1989 when I meet Sifu Larry Hartsell for the first time. After Sifu Larry seminar i did some FMA training with Rick Tucci from USA and Hannu Hiltunen from Finland. After I become a student and later a Senior Full instructor under Sifu Larry Hartsell in JKD and Filipino Kali. During my traveling to US, Sifu Larry introduce me to Punog Guro Edgar Sulite. I did several camps and some private training with him in Lameco Eskrima.
The first time I did meet PG Johan Skålberg was in 2000 I believe it was, he did a demo with Åge Thon at a Kickboxing event here in Norway. I really liked the way he did move, and express himself at that demo. I finding myself to want to learn more FMA and all of my instructors was staying in the US. Later on, I did hear that PG Johan Skålberg was going to have a seminar. I went there for the whole weekend, and I was blowing away. Sice that day, we become friends, and we have a lot of training together thru the years, here in Norway, Sweden and Spain. Thru I am a student / instructor of PG Johan Skålberg, we also have a personal friendship that I am much appreciating. I am running a Martial Arts center here in Molde, where I teach Kali Sikaran together with some private lessons in Jeet Kune Do, and grappling/Dumog from Sifu Larry Hartsell.
My current rank is:
Kali Sikaran - Katulong Guro Under Johan Skålberg
Kali - Senior Instructor under Sifu Larry Hartsell
