It is funny and how quickly time flies. I looked at my calendar today and realize that 11 years ago today I was promoted to 9th degree grandmaster by the late great grandmaster Ernesto A Presas. It seemed like it was only yesterday when he and I were joking around at seminars and hanging out at the family beach. From the moment we 1st met it would like we knew each other for years. It was nice to have him part of my martial family….
