Hi, This is Steve's webmaster coming at you here.
Steve asked me to post this and point you at a worthy cause we are working to support.
This last winter, Steve met a young lady named Mariah Moore at the World Eskrima,Kali Arnis Federation National Championships, which were held in Southern California.
Mariah, who took two gold and one silver at the last WEKAF world Championships, fought her way to a place on the American team to represent her country in this years World's in Cebu Philippines.
Here is a promo clip of her showing off her skills just a bit.
Because of the rising price of everything, it has been very difficult for Mariah's family to make it possible for her to get to the tournament on their own, so several people and companies have stepped up to help.
One of the things we are doing is auctioning off a knife donated by Tribal Edge Knifeworks to help with the expenses.
You can find out more about the knife and the auction at the Eskrimadora blog.
We are also giving away a couple of autographed galleys from famous author (and friend of the blog) Steve Perry.
Please take a moment to check out Mariah and her auction. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Steve will say something more about this when he gets a spare moment.
(We will now return control of your computer screen to you)
