Filipino Martial Arts in Northern VA

Weapons Training from the Philippines

Filipino Martial Arts represent a real challenge for those who want to take their martial arts to the next level through weapons training involving elegant and flowing movement.

Rooted in the unique history of the Philippines, where the locals faced constant external threats, Filipino Martial Arts (FMA) is a complex art yet simple to learn, that utilizes a variety of weapons training. It involves continuous flowing movement working with and against your training partner's strikes. The uninterrupted motion means that repetition of technique is maximized.

"I cannot express how much training in Filipino Martial Arts increased my confidence as I traveled through high-threat locations across the world."
Guro Patrick Tray

Knowing how to use one is critical to learning how to survive against a blunt or bladed weapon.
