Master Richard Hudson, Chief Instructor
Master Richard Hudson’s list of credentials is nothing if not exhaustive. As well as having trained exclusively with Grandmasters in the Philippines, Master Hudson has also trained with the original students of the great Bruce Lee, both in the UK and USA.
Below is a list of Master Hudson’s various qualifications to teach a wide variety of styles, and as well as those achievements, Master Richard has gone on to found several of his own styles of fighting.
He is the founder of the Philindomay-Silat system, and has also founded the Estilo Libre Eskrima Kali Arnis System, which is recognised and endorsed by Philippino Grandmasters. Then there’s his Progressive Combat System, endorsed by Grand Master Richard Bustillo, a student of Bruce Lee.
In 2002 Master Hudson was awarded the title of Punong Guro (Master) By Grand Master Daniel ‘Danny’ Guba – 9th Dan in the Doce Pares Eskrima System.
