Welcome! By taking this class you will learn basic movements of Filipino Martial Arts – stick based, self-defense.
We’ll cover blocks, strikes, stance, and movement while highlighting both self-defense application and martial elements of the moves. This class is open to all levels of martial artists – from those on their first class to those who have been training for years.
The class is also open to all ages (though it is recommended for students 8-years-old and up).
Everyone is welcome. Everyone can learn these strikes. And everyone who joins us will get to play and get to work.
ABOUT YOUR TEACHER: Hi! My name is Katie Marshall! I have been training martial arts for over 7 years and teaching for 3. I achieved “Completion of The Art” in Taboada Balintawak Cuentada in November 2019. I am deeply passionate about teaching martial arts and self-defense skills to women, girls, female-identifying and non-binary humans. I lead self-defense seminars and make it a priority to teach female-identifying humans. I believe Balintawak is one of the most efficient and practical styles of martial arts – not to mention one of the most fun. I love this system. I love this art. I can’t wait to train with you!
