The first Los Angeles Doce Pares (LADP) Black Belt Tour was initiated and organized by LADP founder and chief instructor Master Erwin Mosqueda and LADP Senior Instructor Gary Gabisan, conducted late September of 2014.

Black belt candidates were immersed through a comprehensive pre-test training phase in order to undergo rigorous testing and be duly certified and recognized by the Doce Pares “Multi-Style” system of Eskrima World Headquarters for their proficiency of the 5-year training curriculum.

Master Erwin Mosqueda, #LADP Senior Instructor Guro Gary Gabisan and all Eskrimadors who attended the 2014 Los Angeles Doce Pares Black Belt Tour would like to convey their gratitude to Supreme Grandmaster Dionisio “Diony” Cañete, ODL (Order of Datu Lapu-Lapu) for gracing us with his presence, guiding the Grandmasters and Masters heading our training and seeing through all the aspects of the LADP Black Belt Tour from beginning to end with wisdomful guidance.

We also thank Grandmaster Percival “GM Val” Pableo, Master Gerald Cañete and Master Gerardo Rusiana for their brotherly hospitality, overseeing the pre-test training, testing and awarding ceremonies. 

And a shout out to Ms. Mariz Avila and “driver Mike” for making sure all LADP accommodation, nourishment and training equipment needs were attended to.

Daghang salamat, see you all at the next #Los Angeles #DocePares #BlackBelt Tour and Mabuhay!
