T he Queen of Filipino Martial Arts - Tuhon Gaudiosa Ruby, G rand Master and Founder of the Comjuka-Kali Systems, Filipino-American School of Combat Arts and Founder of the Filipino Martial Arts Hall of Fame that she established in 1997. In Addition to Filipino Martial Arts we also have a strong Law Enforcement Self Defense Tactics Program and have taught Law Enforcement all over the world. It can be brutal but it is worth the efforts as the bad guys are rarely nice and are themselves often very brutal. Training equals preparedness and is very important to Law Enforcement personnel and trainees - especially in these times with so much desperation and lawless profit motivated individuals on our Blue Marble we call Earth. “If in Quantity wealth is measured, then we would forever be poor. But since we measure wealth on Quality - We Are Very Rich!” * Tuhon is available for Seminars & Workshops - See Contact Information.

Tuhon attended Columban College in Olongapo City Zambalas, Philippines And also attended the East Standard Institute of Arts and Sciences. Due to a very hard upbringing and violent assaults in the Philippines, young Gaudiosa began studying martial arts vowing never to be a victim again. After years of studying several styles of martial arts she came to the United States. She is credited by the Consulate General of the Philippines, Alfredo C. Lanuza, for introducing, practicing, and establishing the Philippine Martial Art of Comjuka in the United States. Tuhon Ruby now resides in El Paso, Texas with her husband Punong Guro Gary Ruby where she founded the Comjuka-Kali Systems and later established the Filipino Martial Arts Hall of Fame. Tuhon and Punong Guro Gary have a daughter and two sons, Mary June, Aaron, and Samuel, respectively. Guro Sammy is the youngest of the three children and has established himself as an accomplished and very proficient practitioner and instructor in Comjuka-Kali Systems and has earned the title as Prince of Comjuka Kali Systems due to the years of tutelage under his mother, Tuhon Gaudiosa Ruby
