Sir John Acosta, do you have any affiliates here in manila or do you have any plans of teaching here? i would really love to train under your tutelage because i want to learn the self-defense aspect of Gracie jiu jitsu. the only problem is the distance of our locations. the schools here in manila focuses more sports jiu jitsu and that is what i've been learning for the past year but i want to learn the self defense more. i would really like to get in touch with you. this is my e-mail ad.: bilbs_7@yahoo.com.
thank you very much!
