I have written this unsolicited endorsement for Master Cesar Olavarria. Cesar, in my opinion, is one of the most talented and well-rounded martial artist I have ever had the opportunity of meeting. His skills are surpassed only by his great attitude and personality. Cesar Olavarria is a genuine master and all around class act.
