Galarpe Sensei

I lived in Guam for a number of years and while I was there I trained under Ben Galarpe sensei and I received my BlackBelt from him. His Aikido is technically very similar to the way Ki society does their techniques however his style is much harder. He is tall (at 6' or so) for I filipeno (SP?) and his style. takes advantage of that. I have never met anyone who did Sankyo quite like him, brutal is putting it mildly, and yet he was in no way hard on his students. Overall his aikido is very fluid but with a very hard/intense flavor.

Suck, Squeeze, Bang, Blow
That's what makes my Thumper go
