Hola,

I may be able to take advantage of an opportunity this summer to study spanish in Cuernevaca.  If I do, I was wondering if perhaps making weekend trips to Mexico City to study at the "Sistemas Integrados de Combate" would be a feasible option?  Anyone with any relevant experience/ideas, please feel free to offer any suggestions.  Mahalo in advance for any and all help.

Aloha, Kalani

Woof Kalani:

What a great idea!  Years ago (1974?  Ohmygod its been 30 years!) starting in Philadelphia my friend Bill and I wandered down to Mexico in his van.  As a C- high school Spanish student, I was the "interpreter" of the expedition and 5 minutes after we crossed into Mexico from Laredo Bill made an illegal turn and the police stopped us.  Uh oh.  A couple of minutes later I had paid my first bribe (?No podemso pagar la propina  rolleyes  aqui?) and my fascination with Spanish and Mexico was born.

We continued on down to Cuernavaca (see, there was a point to the story) which is about an hour past Mexico City (a.k.a. "el DF/Distrito Federal") where we enrolled in one of the local language schools wherein pretty Mexican girls taught classes of 4 or less in the morning and in the afternoon we would go out and practice on the natives.  What great fun!

I imagine Cuernavaca has grown in the 30 years since then, but it was a very pleasant small city at an altitude that gave it a very agreeable climate year round.  About 4 hours futher south down a very winding road is Acapulco.  

The DF, and DBMA Apprentice Mauricio of "Sistemas Integrados de Combate" is about an hour north of Cuernavaca.  I was just with Mauricio for the second time a couple of weeks ago.  He is doing good work getting DBMA off the ground in the DF and is working on developing a sparring/fighting group.  I think you would add to your good times by checking him out.

Woof.

I was pretty impressed with the level of the Spanish until you 'fessed up. Cheesy
