About the author:
GM Datu Tim Hartman can look back on a long and exciting martial arts career. His journey began as a teenager when he met Modern Arnis at a sports school
and in the first hour immediately realized that this is his martial art.
Quickly Grandmaster Remy Presas became aware of him.
After Tim made his brown belt, Grand Master Presas accepted him as a personal student and protégée.
Soon after, he helped GM Remy with his classes and camps in the US and Germany. After some, GM called Remy Tim with the word “anak”, which means tagalog “son”. Datu Hartman gives and has courses in the US and Canada, as well as in England, Germany, Sweden and Denmark.
The light and especially the sound situation was very difficult. 2 (sometimes very loud) groups were training in the same hall. Sometimes the teacher’s voice will be very thin or “tinny” sound. To minimize the noise, several frequencies had to be suppressed to understand the teacher.
