There is a Bandalan school here in Hawaii.  I do not have any personal experience with their system they kind of stick to their own, I know one of the guys from the Hawaii group is a WEKAF champ who participated in contests in the PI. I have some interaction with the student and they are good peeps. Sorry I couldn't provide any useful info.

Kaju:

When I met Alfredo back in the late 80s he was part of Doce Pares WEKAF type eskrima.

I don't know much about Bandalan Eskrima, but I can comment that he and my teacher Master Richard Lewis trained and received their Master Certification in Kenpo from the Ken Ju Bo Ai association headed by Master Sam Brown.  Rich Lewis has his own organization known as Go Shin Jutsu Kenpo yet the material is the original system passed down by Sam Brown.  You may have noticed them both on the the Kajukenbo tree in a branch from CHA3.

Antonio Lucero would be able to tell you more about the lineage of Bandalan Eskrima.  He fought single stick in my open garage weapons fighting night at least two times, as I recall from distant memory.
