The Chief in Western Australia

Recently as of August 21, 2014, GM Benefredo "Bebing" Lobrido, President/Headmaster of Original Filipino Tapado Long Stick Fighting Association Inc went to Australia to visit his daughter, Rhobie who married Rodney Rawson an Australian.
By chance when they went out fishing a group of local journalist took pictures of their group and started interviewing the visitors from the Philippines. It happened that the interviewer had many friends in their community that were eskrima practitioners. Upon reaching home, they were surprised that many telephone calls from arnis groups kept calling to meet the GM.
GM Lobrido was obliged to meet them and upon seeing and feeling the power of OFT strikes, they were very enthusiastic in learning the Art from the Grandmaster himself.
So they scheduled their practice with the headmaster until such time that the visit of the chief 's vacation was over.
