First PTK seminar in Latvia
Mandala Buddy Acenas travelled to Riga, Latvia in February 2014 to teach a seminar, the first time a Filipino has ever taught a Filipino Martial Arts system in the Baltic state.
Mandala Buddy taught a mix of basic stick and knife techniques and concepts as well as some advanced knife and empty-handed applications. He emphasized the translation of movement from stick to knife to empty hands. He also demonstrated the importance of footwork and positioning in relation to range and angle of attack.
