The Way” system began early on in the 70’s. Rodrigo was a student of Washing Ru Karate, Shotikan Karate and Tae Kwon Do. All of which he was competing in sanctioned tournaments and winning easily. While his father taught in the south Bronx NYC, Rodrigo found himself in several altercations. Rodrigo realized at an early age all of what he had studied with its strict katas and fancy high kicks were useless on the streets. Feeling frustrated he began his search for a more applicable style of street self defense. He would there first meet his most valued instructor, Mosses Powell. Professor Powell taught Rodrigo in the discipline of Jui Jitsu, from there it revolutionized his fighting style. Later Rodrigo would study Shaolin Gung Fu in Ithaca, under Sifu Maurice Haltmon, boxing out of Albany at the Adirondack boxing club, Muay Thai out of Thailand and Arizona where Fairtex first entered the US. Later he would come under the instruction of Professor Florendso Viscitation, the Master and teacher to Mosses Powel, and later professor David James. It was through these various forms of combat that Rodrigo would see the value of the forms as well as their weaknesses. Here he would develop his style of Self defense, an unorthodox way with limitless bounds giving a new definition to self defense. Developing this style became his way of life, revolutionizing it became his legacy.
