GM Robert Castro and memories with his friend and mentor. late Great Grandmaster Ernesto Amador Presas.
I have been studying With GGM since 1994. I would like to tell a story about GGM. For decades GGM wanted me to go to his camp in the Phillippines. All this time I was taking private lessons for several years. He finally told me if I don’t go to the camp he wouldn’t give me the final 15% of his system. So I always wanted to go so now I had to. I wanted the other 15 %. I had to go. There were personal FMA issues I needed his help with anyway so I went.. People don’t realize how intimate and close we were. To make the long story short. When I got to the camp, that night when everybody there was receiving awards .I was in the camp bar with GM Lito Concepcion. He wasn’t GM yet. To my surprise Master Joseph tells me that GGM Ernesto wanted me to come to the award ceremony. I ask why?. He wants you now. So slightly intoxicated. I went. GGM Ernesto suprised me. in front of everyone there he promoted me to 9th Dan Black belt In Kombatan. That was one of the greatest moments of my life. What a great honor.That was in 2007. This is just one story. I have many great times and experience and stories with the late GGM Ernesto A. Presas. Thank you for all that you have given me. Much love your Friend and student. Till we meet again
