GSP's visit in Manila

I was fortunate enough to witness the live Georges St-Pierre public training at SM Mall of Asia last September 25, 2010. To cut the story short, I am blessed to get into the ring at least 3 meters away. Here is the summarized sequence of events:

2PM: Boom Gonzales opened up the show with a Q and A contest

3PM: A fashion show followed. Models wearing UFC apparels.

3:30PM: GSP arrives on the left flank of the stage. DJ Pia entertains the crowd with some sounds.

4PM: GSP is now onstage being welcomed by Boom and her female co-host (forgot the name). GSP greeted the fans "kamusta pow kayow?!".

4:15PM: Winners of Ballz contest were called and given the privilege to ask 1 question to GSP. After the session, GSP left to changed training outfit.

4:45PM: GSP came out wearing a boxing gloves and training shorts. He is about to demonstrate a public training on Muay Thai. 3 Rounds with 3 Minutes. Awesome leg kicks and methodical punches. The Muay Thai sparring mate was "taken down" out of the fans' requests.

5:00PM: GSP demonstrated some of his jiu-jitsu skills by doing a so called "Sambo Leg Lock" to another training partner. I saw how smoothly GSP operates on the ground. Large and chiselled body yet so flexible doing the escapes and ground maneuvers. Koscheck's ass will surely be kicked and flattened.

IT ended with GSP thanking the fans and wishing for everyone's support for MMA.
