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

Enrollment now open for 2016 through to the end of 2017.

HOW TO ARRIVE: Simply book your air flight into Cebu Mactan International Airport. Once you arrive numerous taxis are available to take you to Danao Port 30 min North of Cebu City. At Danao get the regular Fast Craft Ferry boat to take the 1 hour ride to Consuelo Port on Camotes Island where we meet you on the Island paradise of Camotes Island. Email and Txt us.. See details of the ferry boat 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!

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.

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 BlackBelt 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.

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.

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.

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.
