13-17 Mar | Montevideo, Uruguay

This past week, Chief Instructor Alvin Guinanao came to Uruguay to teach for the first time, to a small but committed and open-minded group. It was hard work for all but everyone did great and a lot of fun was had.

The training week consisted of conditioning via ground postures, ground fighting, knife techniques and knife defence.

A good seed has been planted, thanks to Leonel Gengko Izmendi, not just for organising but for propagating SBL in South America.

Alvin will be back late 2020 and will continue to grow and support this group.
