Grandmaster Rick Alemany is currently living in Waianae, Hawaii with his lovely wife, Margaret.  Sigung Ron Calpito and I trained with Grandmaster Alemany's residence, once a week.  With 42 years of martial arts experience, is present himself as being very humble and he is one of the most knowledgeable martial artist I have been acquainted with.
