Where We’ve Taught

Thrive in a supportive community

The school environment is challenging but not competitive, driven by the shared purpose of refinement through training. The goal of all arnis students is to practice arnis as a “Way of Peace,” just as Modern Arnis founder Remy Presas has intended.

Direct lineage from the Philippines

Instructors continuously train with the grandmasters in the Philippines to ensure that skills and knowledge are transferred accurately

Access to further training opportunities

As community members of Filipino Martial Arts in Toronto and the GTA, we always post enriching seminars, competitions, and events to the student body, both local and abroad. Most notable is the FMA World Festival, the largest international arnis / kali / Filipino Martial Arts gathering right in the Philippines, the birthplace of arnis.
