    I want to take an Sikaran/Arnis course, but can't seem to find a notable school in my area of southern CA. Specifically, in the Los Angeles area. I've only found Tae Kwon Do, Karate, etc., but haven't no pinoy martial arts.

    Does my fellow bretherens have a contact, website or reference to help me out?

    Salamat Glockers!

    Re: [luxid] Sikaran/Arnis Instruction in LA?--



    There are numerous eskrima groups in L.A., but unlike
    your regular martial arts like karate, you won't find them
    in the yellow pages or strip malls in the city.

    Most of the major styles are represented in southern
    California. There are many name arnisadors who do
    not formally have schools but teach on the national
    circuit or conduct seminars or give private lessons,
    like yours truly.

    I even belong to a forum that answers questions like
    that one. To answer that question, they will ask
    (1) what part of southern california or los angeles do
    you live in? how far will you drive to a class?
    (2) what exactly are you looking for--any particular
    style, (dozens, just like karate), a particular aspect of
    arnis (as a sport, self-defense, etc. just like karate).?

    he can email me directly and i will try to help him.
    to give you a flavor, he can go to my websites or
    similar websites:
    www.tipunan.com
    www.filipinofightingartsintl.com
    www.filipinomartialartsmuseum.com
    www.bakbakan.com - my friend rey galang's website
