Grandmaster Tortal, we call him “Nene” as he is known, almost every year goes to the USA to give a series of seminars to his students. You can check the details from his web site www.dtskali.com .
I become a proud student of grandmaster in 1998 in Manila while I was living in the Philippines. He is also my Godfather and accepted me as a lifelong student.
A small selected group of students and friends, we could train day and night where ever we found an empty spot. This could be an open empty car park (at nights) site in the middle of Makati City, a seaside spot along Roxas Boulevard in Manila and also our usual training hall. It was important for us that once we got hold of grandmaster, he trained us. I don’t recall him turning us down for any reason if he was available he always comes along and we enjoyed his company immensely.
