Washington DC Filipino martial Arts
Hey everyone! I just moved to the area and I was wondering if anyone knew of FMA schools in washington DC or groups. I practice FMA myself and I was just curious.
Thanks a lot.
the biggest group that is in the area (to my knowledge) is Sayoc.
The main group trains out in Maryland and is lead by Guro Bob Shin. http://mdkali.com/?page_id=2. It is approx a 40-60 min drive from DC downtown.
There is another group that practices in Annandale, Va. It is lead by Guro Miguel Acevedo (a student of Guro Bob's). This is a 20-30 min drive from DC.
I'm having a lot of fun practicing within the Sayoc system. There is a community feel and everyone respects each other, but there still is the intensity of training that ranges from drills to full contact stick fighting. If you are interested, I would contact Guro Bob through his website.
There is actually quite a bit of FMA in the DC Metro area. This link has several of them though it is not 100% accurate. Hope it helps!
