The Wall of the Fallen Warrior

This page is dedicated in memory of our members or immediate family of our students. It is made to HONOR those HEROES who were taken before their time.

“Everything we do has a beginning and an end. We must cherish the life and not its end. The end of it only happens when we forget. Remember the people, the great memories, the great times shared. Remember them always and they will live forever!”

“Master Melegrito”


Rick“The Filipino Martial Arts is probably one of the best mixes of the various arts. The hand to hand is great and very dynamic. You learn to defend against the weapons and train to be ambidextrous.
I love the art and the Philippines!”
