Prospective Students


Our training program is geared towards adult participants looking for an opportunity to learn Filipino Martial Arts. We are located at Prince George's County in Maryland and we study the art of Pekiti Tirsia Kali. This program is not for everyone. This is for a limited number who are willing to dedicate their time for small group in-person classes and independent learning each week.  

It is important to understand that this is not a traditional martial school. We do not conduct belt testing to follow a colored belt system. We will track your training hours and your progress on a regular basis using a scoring rubric that we have designed for the program. The class utilizes solo and partner drills, whiteboarding, group discussions, and online materials to reinforce learning.

If you feel that this program is a good fit for you, click on the button to submit the application form. Our slots are limited so our enrollment process is different from a typical martial arts school. New students will be required to complete a 90-day program before being fully admitted as official student. Within this time, new students are encouraged to work on their core skills. We will also provide recommendations on training weapons to purchase so you won't have to rush buying your gear with limited knowledge.



We offer four (4) in-person classes per month. The tuition is $160 a month and class is conducted on a weeknight from 7:00 to 8:30 pm (EST). Please coordinate with your instructor on class schedule.



We have a video library of core skills and a mobile app where students get access to class notes, review videos, micro-learning courses, and community support. Have continuity of training while managing a busy work schedule. Learn asynchronously using our online materials and receive mentor feedback using the chat function.
