Class Information

Lakas Filipino Martial Arts is once again offering a public class! Classes are held on Monday nights at 7-8pm at Elite Prospects Athletic Complex powered by Parisi Speed School in Hunt Valley Maryland. This class is a Foundations class built on the Inosanto Method and blend of Filipino Martial Arts.

The Inosanto Method of Filipino Martial Arts (FMA) is a mixed system comprised of concepts, principles and techniques from 34 primary (major) influences and many other additional teachers, styles and systems. Sometimes referred to as Inosanto-Lacoste Kali, Inosanto Blend, JKD/Kali or Kali-Silat our curriculum is organized into 12 Areas. These areas cover the common weapons such as single sword, double stick, stick & dagger, knife and empty hands, but also include less familiar options such as blowgun, bow and arrow and hilot (healing).

While the driving framework for Lakas FMA comes from years of direct study under Guro Inosanto in his Kali and Silat classes and seminars, it is also very heavily influenced by Sayoc Kali (Pamana Tuhon Christopher Sayoc, Sr. and the Sayoc Tribe), Atienza Kali (Tuhon Carl Atienza and the Atienza organization), Doce Pares (SGM Diony Canete’s Doce Pares Multi-Style Eskrima and Grandmaster Cacoy Canete Doce Pares via Master Carlos Patalinghug, Jr.), Momoy Canete’s San Miguel Eskrima (Magtutudlo Ramon Rubia). While these teachers and systems will always be recognized, only the Inosanto FMA material is taught as a curriculum.

For the highest quality instruction in official Sayoc Kali and Atienza Kali, please visit Maharlika Martial Arts in Columbia on Tuesday nights at 8pm.

Kick Connection is the region’s premiere Doce Pares Eskrima and ITF Taekwon-Do school and has produced world champions for 30 years. For those systems and more, check them out!

In addition, there are many other excellent schools and teachers out there and I am happy to help in whatever way I can to support them.

  1. Hi, my name is Bobby. I emailed you some time ago concerning me seeing a class. I’ve trained with the Ladra Brothers for awhile in the past, so I’m familiar with some of the moves. What exactly are you teaching? Is it Sayoc or a mixture of other things? Thanks for your time, and I look forward to hearing from you.
