"Having worked in Naval Intelligence and the opportunity to walk the streets of largest cities and the back alleys of some 3rd and 4th world countries, I came to realize my 15 years in martial arts left me unprepared for what can happen in the real world. An encounter in the streets does not have a referee, there is no tapping out, and your only recourse is to survive or hope your opponent has compassion. With this mindset I started looking for a truly effective martial art, 7 years later I found it with Kombatan. After only 1 short year in Kombatan I feel more capable of handling a situation than ever before. The art is fluid and dynamic, teaching the student to flow through multiple ranges of fighting, be it with a weapon or hand to hand and most importantly, the need to “finish” the fight if necessary. Kombatan also changes the student’s mindset. Humbleness, respect and accountability are paramount in the school. There is no bravado or machismo. In fact the atmosphere of the school is more like family. Grandmaster Bowers runs a first rate school that challenges you mentally and physically, but if you put in the effort, the rewards are unlimited."
"As a lead police defensive tactics instructor I was given the opportunity to pursue martial arts training to develop myself and the program I teach. After researching several different styles of martial arts I chose to study at the Berdugo Martial Arts center. The Presas Arnis system is broad and complete, which made the Berdugo Martial Arts center stand out from others. From kicks and strikes to weapons and ground fighting, this art covers it all. I joined Berdugo at age 35 with no prior formal martial arts training. Although I have always been involved with athletics and had been exposed to various martial arts systems through my work, I discovered that this art challenged me, mentally and physically, in ways I had never experienced. This is not your typical strip mall martial arts school. Grandmaster Bowers' is committed to the tradition and honor of the art and he is very selective about the students he allows into the school. This results in a group of students with high character values and an environment of support and respect. I was so impressed with the school, the philosophy, and Grandmaster Bowers, that I chose to enroll my eight year old son in the school as well. "
