26-28 April | AKEA Joint FMA & Silat Workshop

AKEA Event Joint workshop with Tuhon Bill McGrath & SBL Founder Alvin Guinanao in Anagni, Italy 26th – 28th April

It was an honour for our own Chief Instructor Alvin Guinanao to be a guest Instructor at the annual A.K.E.A. Day and to be sharing the stage with the incredible and knowledgeable Tuhon Bill McGrath alongside AKEA Directors Sifu Andrea Citarelli and Sifu Attilo Acquistapace.

This is an amazing event with instructors sharing and showcasing the love for South East Asian Martial Arts.

A big thank you to Sifu Andreas Citarelli for hosting/organising the event with his amazing crew; to all the participants for their hard work and dedication. Last but not least, thanks to SBL Instructor Danny McCavanagh for assisting in Alvin’s teaching and for demoing SBL.
