Datu Tim Hartman

A friend for life and a testament to his mastering the craft of Filipino Martial Arts. Datu Tim Hartman is very well known for giving all Martial Artists a place to showcase their respective Arts. Through his honesty and dedication to the Filipino Martial Arts he has created a network of friends to help promote unity and the family aspects that all of us are trying to accomplish. He understands that as a caretaker of the Art it is his responsibility to keep the Art alive and most of all acknowledges that it is the students that give the Art “Life”.

I will always hold his friendship and his continuing accomplishments for our Art in the most Highest Regard,
