Grand Master Martin Hofmann

Instead of just writing some bio text about this special martial artist, I thought it may be best if I write something about him and why I am working together with such a great teacher.

I met Dai-Sifu Martin a long time ago, in 1993. We both trained the art of Wing Tsun/ Wing Chun, but to work with Sifu Martin was special. This peaceful martial artist has a great warrior within him, who is very passionate about his art. His skill demonstrates, with great fluidity, power and amazing precision, how masterful a fighter can be. His presentation is poetry in motion.

Dai-Sifu Martin is very astute about the body, fitness and well being. His knowledge goes well beyond understanding a physical constitution.
His mission in life is to help people reach their potential in life. He is a very compassionate person and will use his ability to improve the human being as a whole.

Dai-Sifu Martin is a master like a master should be.

I enjoy his teachings a lot and so will you!!

Dai-Sifu Simon Mayer

Escrima as taught by Grand Master Rene Latosa is the study of the best concepts and strategies of many systems.


Grandmaster Latosa has condensed the most effective knowledge from his past instructors: Angel Cabales, Dentoy Revillar, Maximo Sarimiento, Leo Giron, his father Juan Latosa - and combined it with his own unique research and development to create an effective, dynamic, logical, combat system which provides an education in body motion and weapon efficiency.


The goal of Escrima is to make your mental, physical and technical skills work as ONE - transforming YOU into a quality Escrimador who can think creatively and react responsively.
