Cebu Philippines Escrima Arnis Martial Arts Training Camp for 2017

Hi Guys and Girls 

- Exciting times - 

Come and have a Philippines Holiday Adventure while learning a highly practical advanced martial arts. Covering hand to hand kung fu, knife defenses and stick and weapon usage.

Learn advanced Arnis, Escrima and Kali here in the Philippines. Also have a very interesting holiday experience. The training area has moved to the beautiful city of BOGO.

Bogo is the jewel of the North Cebu Island, located just two hours north of the Cebu City capital.

While Cebu City is over crowded and dirty Bogo is the perfect size city to allow entertainment and locations for your training experience.

There is both a 2 week course and an advanced 1 month course.



Bogo is very easy to get to. 

Also Here in Cebu North it is very safe - the western media sometimes represents the Philippines as a dangerous place but that is very untrue, here it is very safe and i have never witnessed crime as in theft or violence.

Simply arrive at Cebu airport and taxi to Cebu North Bus Terminal.

Ride on the large air conditioned brand new buses just sit back and enjoy the movie and in two hours you have arrived in Bogo.

I meet you at the bus station and get you to your hotel.

It is advised to book in for two nights and then we spend those two days in both training but i show the the other accommodation options to settle you in the perfect location for your training stay.

But feel free to contact me about arranging your accommodation and i can answer any training questions you may have. martialarm@gmail.com

I have been living in the Philippines now for over ten years and over five years training foreigners full time. i can teach raw beginners no problem but the real gains come if you already have ten years experience in a martial art or perceive that martial arts training will be a main part of your life. As i will super-boost your knowledge and skills in hand to hand kung fu kali, escrima stick and weapons and knife blade defense.









So this post is an update that all training now is held in Bogo easy to get to and exciting small city in the north of Cebu Island.



I recommend staying at Hisolers Beach Resort and we can get a good discount according to your length of stay. Has Wifi Swimming Pool and Restaurant facilities directly on the ocean.

Philippines Arnis Escrima Martial Arts Training Camp for 2016 through to 2017



Enrollment now open for 2017 through to the end of 2018.


Please note there is an update on the main page about the training location ...

we have now moved to the beautiful north cebu city of bogo.

information here


WHAT WE DO: We invite you, greet you on arrival, arrange accommodation or housing you, show you around the island, introduce you to martial art trainers, begin you within our school, and help you in day to day affairs - You can do all this   training while also enjoying the tropical island of Cebu Central Visayas in the Philippines.

WHAT WE DO NOT DO: We do not fill our classes with anaerobic exercises or waste our students lesson time with fitness, running and other exercises as these can be done by the student themselves or done in an external fitness class. What we teach is practical combat covering hand-to-hand, stick, knives and weapon defense. We do not pass off a martial arts class while only doing fitness and an anaerobic workout with a tinge of martial arts. Anorobics and fitness are a part of martial arts yet we expect you to do that in your own time.

We do only martial arts hand to hand, knife and stick combat training in our lesson time.

It is non threatening and friendly training as we wish to build skill for defense with the right temperament, no egos here! We are only interested in rapid progress as fast as possible for our students!



Testimonial: 
I trained with Peter for 2 Months and at first i did not know what to expect. 
My background is Wing Tsun, Jiu Jitsu and some center based systems.  
And Peters system caught me really by surprise. 
Not is it just one of the most effective systems i encountered, but also it is very easy to learn compared to other martial arts.  
He kept it simple and effective. In the end i was so convinced, that i think it should be spread. Thats what i will start once i am back home. 
As far as Peter is concerned, he is a very cheerful guy, who is always interested in your progress and is patient and a great teacher. 
cheers 
Knud from Germany

If you are located in Germany we have a new school opening from one of my students.

5 obvious reasons for coming to train with us in the Philippines

Arnis - Northern Philippines | Eskrima - Central Philippines | Kali - Southern Philippines

1. Cebu Island in the Philippines probably has more Grandmasters per capita of anyplace on planet Earth. Here we have Fathers who taught sons who in turn taught their sons and in turn their sons. A true authentic lineage in martial arts excellence only now, within the last few years, is this knowledge available to be learn by Westerners.


2. The Philippino martial arts systems are designed for real self defense forged over hundreds of years of life and death battles between the competing islands and clans. The Filipino martial arts systems are unique, sophisticated and devastating in effect. This is not an exercise or a dance lessons designed as martial arts for kids often found in the West.


3. Most martial arts training in the Western World is available twice a week perhaps a one hour lesson. Compare that to the rapid progress you can make here with our training facility. We have full time teachers / Instructors training here up to 4 hours everyday ready and waiting for your attendance. Become an Eskrima Black Belt within a year with our intense training program.


4. The Philippines martial arts are extremely practical. They start with weapons like the stick, sword and knife and work through to hand to hand techniques all using the same methodology. This is a complete system not a hodge podge of mixed martial arts styles. These systems are not overly fancy and do not require any acrobatics in their moves. Anybody in any physical shape can gain from our classes - all body styles, any age at any skill level will find our training riveting, exhilarating and intensely practical.


5. Our training is very moderately priced. $20 per lesson hour allows you to involve yourself up to four hours training each day, with various masters and their varying systems. Living in the Philippines is also cheap and we arrange a one year visa from $300 and simple and practical accommodation for $100 per month. Internet access, delicious foods, entertainment and travel around the 7000 islands here is also cheap and readily available. Come to an oasis and combine a holiday and martial arts!

Sample Review of the training:


Much Better than I Expected

Since Peter is not Filipino I had a bit of a reservation about whether this was going to be worth my time or not and the effectiveness of his skills. As it turns out what he teaches is not a pure form of Arniss or Kali, but in my opinion something much more practical and right up my alley.
The whole reason I wanted to learn Filipino Martial Arts was for my lack of weapon skills (not that my hand to hand is very good either). Then I was going to go around learning other stuff from other people, such as Krav Maga etc for the purpose of putting together a relatively easy to learn but very street effective fighting system for the Survival Fitness Plan fight training. After learning Peter’s system I think I might not bother with other training camps and just refine his system to my needs.
Filipino Martial Arts Training Review, Cebu - Lock Flow Drill - Survive Travel
The lock flow drill teaches a variety of arm and wrist locks.

About Peter’s Filipino Martial Arts Training

Peter’s Filipino Martial Arts training in Cebu encompass hand to hand, stick fighting and knife defense and all three of these meld together. He did a lot of research and more importantly a lot of thinking about what are the most effective techniques and principles to use. It is far too much to go into detail here but believe me, it is VERY well thought out.
This is self defense / street fight training. It is very street applicable, so much so that it is not practical to spar. You can do partnered flow drills and he uses Chi Sao (a modified version) but I think if you were to spar properly with this someone would get seriously hurt. Of course you can soft spar but it is not like Muay Thai or Boxing where you can score a point and keep going. With this if you were to “score” properly then your mate is probably not going to want to keep going.
Filipino Martial Arts Training  Review, Cebu - Self Kill - Survive Travel
Using a “self kill” knife defence.

Teaching Style

Peter has a very good teaching style. He is patient and has well thought out lesson plans which he adapts to the student. His aim is to teach you as much as possible in as short time as possible. This means that it is all skills training with no focused conditioning or fitness, although you do get some (especially conditioning) during the normality of training.
He does cram ALOT of information in but he uses a progressive step method of teaching so you revise stuff as you continue to learn, e.g. ABCD, ABCDE, BCDEF, ABCDEF, CDEFGH etc.
