Training in the Maryland, Washington DC and Virginia Areas

One of the main purposes of Lakas Filipino Martial Arts is to promote the Filipino Martial Arts systems and organizations that we teach, and support our teachers, seniors and brothers & sisters in the arts.  There are some truly amazing resources in the area, many of which I myself participate, train or teach with.  I encourage anyone out there to train with as many instructors and systems that you can, find the teachers or styles that work best for you, and discover a path that you can stay with for a long time.

Guro Joe’s teachers in the area:

Sayoc Kali & Atienza Kali

Guro Bob Shin, Maharlika Martial Arts in Columbia

Inosanto Filipino Martial Arts

Guro Pat Finley, Plato’s Cave in Columbia

There are also groups providing instruction in Pekiti Tersia Kali under Mandala Bobby Ladra, Marcaida Kali at Tryumph Academy, Bais Tres Manos under Master Jun Pagliangayan.  There are many talented martial artists and instructors out there, and by no means is this list exhaustive.

Through the year I will also do my best to promote seminar and workshops in the area.
