Hi Ice! I used to be a proud member of the AAK (Association for the Advancement of Karatedo) way back in my high school days. We were actually the AAK pioneers in Marist. Still fondly remember the exams and tests at San Agustin in Dasma Villa. I was under Teacher Manolo then. A hand injury (broken bone during a spar) forced me to quit. Do i miss those days! US! (OOOOS!)

It's always a runout at The Runout TV!
