We would like to announce that we have one confirmed group who will be rendering a service at the Jan. 25 fair!
The service vendors – called artist booths at the 2012 SenDong All Our Love fundraiser – are what make this fundraiser unique! Groups or individuals are given a table and give “customers” – fair attendees – a service for free; customers “buy” the service for donation.
In 2012, SenDong had six artist booths: Gejr Photography Professional Portraits, BigHugs Photobooth, Cafe Ysabella Poemletters, facials and makeovers by Aethereal Adornment, feather hair extensions by Gaite Salon, and Martial Arts in 30 Minutes by the Defensor Method.
We are pleased to announce that the first group to confirm service is Defensor Method!
DM will be offering Filipino Martial Arts lessons to fair attendees again this year.

What is The Defensor Method of Filipino Martial Arts?
Defensor Method of Filipino Martial Arts is a complete system that enables you to turn your whole body and anything around you as a weapon. These arts are thought to be weapon based only but in actuality it is a complete system of self-defense. You will learn fighting drills using the stick, knife, staff and the whole body as a weapon.
Guro Nate Defensor has been teaching the “”Defensor Method”” of Filipino-Indonesian Martial Arts for 30 years in the Chicagoland area. Defensor Method is a combination of Inayan System, Pekiti-Tirsia, Inosanto Blend, Tobosa/Villabrille System, Pusaka Dwipantara Silat, Jalur Putih Pencak Silat, Doce Pares Eskrima, Derobio, Balintawak, Ilongo Style, Muay-Thai, & Kuntao.
Defensor Method will also raffle off lessons to lucky attendees.
