The Day I met Grand Master Bong

This was one of the very best days of my life. This is the very competition where Master Bong sat as my judge and I performed the broad sword form I learned from Grand Master Wu Bin(Jet Li and Jackie Chan's Coach). It was this day that Grand Master Bong Jornales invited me to come to his Jornales System seminar. I went to the seminar and the rest is history, but still in the making! Grand Master Bong has coached me to 4 World Championship Titles. He's the best in the world. Period!

W.E.K.A.F. - a note from USA Director, Gabe Rafael

All WEKAF USA Members,


I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for electing me as USA Country Director and your continued support with the Federation. As Director of WEKAF USA and the current appointed Board of Directors, we are the officially recognized representative of WEKAF International and the only sanctioned organization in the USA. We are the only authorized organization to collect membership dues on behalf of WEKAF International and who can establish the team that will represent the USA in the 2010 World Tournament and beyond. Any other organization who claim to represent WEKAF International in the USA and collecting fees are in violation of the Federation and misleading the general public.

Currently, there are vacant positions with WEKAF USA officers, if you or anyone is interested in filling these vacancies please contact me at for more information. We are now accepting individual and school membership dues for 2009 and 2010, see attached application form. The deadline for discounted fee is July 31, 2009. Visit our website at for fee information, benefits, and application form.

As Country Director, my goal is to promote unity within the Filipino Martial Arts community and establish a positive atmosphere for the family and members of WEKAF USA. The Board of Directors, myself and many countless volunteers are dedicated in working with you and for you. Please do not hesitate to email us if you have any questions or concerns.

Again, thank you for your support with WEKAF USA.

Respectfully yours,

Gabe Rafael


Country Director

Just a quick note to let you know what's happening with AGT. We did not receive a phone call from the travel dept. at AGT last week, but did get an email from the producer yesterday. She said she was sorry that it did not work out for me to go to LA this week and that they have me on "Standby." She also said that she would let me know when she had more information. Please keep your fingers crossed and keep praying for me. This opportunity means the world to me!

Keep your fingers crossed and Pray hard!

For those of you who are watching and wondering about America's Got Talent, I am patiently waiting for more news. As you may know, I got the initial call and I was told that this was a preliminary call and that the travel department would call me to make arrangements. I don't know what AGT and God have planned for me, but I'm looking forward to it. And, I do know that the producers have an incredible job to do and that there are thousands and thousands of amazing acts for them to consider and they are doing the very best job they can. I am very happy just to have gotten the initial call. I felt very good about my audition, and I am putting this in God's hands. I promise I will let you know just as soon as I know anything. Please pray for me! I will be practicing and working hard no matter what.
