GM Jon Bais,Bais Tres Manos website is an excellent FMA educational tool and a great promotion of the Filipino martial arts culture.Way back in the early 1980's, I was one of GM Jon's student. After numerous years of diligent study and practice of Kalis-Silat-Kuntaw(KSK) under the guidance and leadership of GM Jon Bais, I became his assistant instructor at the King Fahd Naval Academy in the Middle East. We developed outstanding Navy cadets martial arts practitioners in the Persian Gulf countries. GM Jon's skills and knowledge in (KSK) were exceptional. I'm honored and grateful being one of his students

Maayong adlaw ug kahinsug sa inyong tanan. We feel so proud of the
efforts that you and all other FMAs have made to keep the art alive. Being a
filipino born, it became a duty to help promote FMA to the world and make it
known that Philippines is special in more ways than one. We are from the East
Coast and we really feel good knowing your group is actively propagating our art
to the youngsters who are the actual hiers. Our skills, knowledge and culture
are all we can pass on to them. We are really thankful for the dedication that
you have shown us all.Mano po.

I was part of a Reserve Police Officer class at the Martinez Adult
School on 05/10/2008. Our defensive tactics instructor (Brian Everett) was a
student of Maestro and arranged for a demonstration from Maestro and his son.It
was an amazing display of Martial Arts skill from both men and I/We were very
impressed and humbled. This is definitely a skill valuable to law enforcement as
well as responsible citizens. Thank you for your valuable time and take care!

It's nice to see that you are now making sure that people
understand the history of Filipino martial arts. Most people don't realize
it but knowing the history is just about as important as knowing the physics of
the art. You did a very nice job

Hello there, Kyud John!Thanks a lot for sending me the new website of the "Bais Tres Manos System". The history write-up was very well-researched, authoritative and presented in a very clear, comprehensive manner.Looking thru those pictures bring back so much treasured memories of dedicated, hard training days under your guidance and tutelage when we were still in Saudi Arabia, twenty three years ago. Although we, your old students, are now scattered in different parts of the world, the spirit of martial arts discipline, bonding, brotherhood and camaraderie remain with us, wherever we are, wherever we go. Thank you for sharing and passing on to us your family-kept secrets of highly effective self-defense techniques. Personally, I felt so honored having trained under you for seven unbroken years and will forever be grateful for being one of those you deemed worthy to learn and be taught the principles and philosopy of your family's fighting arts and system
