Negros Occidental Teachers Federation (NOTF) President Evelyn V. Arnaiz said, "Your BOT and officers for 2011-2013, are very proud and extremely happy to announce to the world but most especially to you, our members, that finally our Federation has a home of its own, having acquired a 3-storey building standing on a 250 sq.m. lot in San Sebastian-Gatuslao Streets. Its first floor would house our offices, our Group of Companies, second floor is for meetings, seminars and classes for our Masteral and Doctoral students, while the 3rd floor is our dormitory where we, members, from far-flung areas could stay and spend the night while we are here in Bacolod with very affordable rates but with excellent amenities. Rooms are air-conditioned and comfort rooms are sweet-smelling similar to that of L’Fisher... This is the greatest legacy, we, your officers of 2011-2013, are leaving with you, an epic task accomplished!
"Last year, in this same venue and occasion, our good Governor, Hon. Alfredo G. Marañon, signed and donated to us a lot in Brgy. 39, empathizing with our sad plight of being lost, homeless and desperate.

The Methodology of the training is all based in the Filipino Cultural Discipline in the Art of Kali recognized as the only Fighting Art in the world today that serves the best of Street Survival Realism and true to life techniques and guerilla warfare methods, doctrine and principles in the science of strategy and tactics. It practices the correct human characteristics with capability which is being observed not by the principles of Animals, Elements and Astrology.
