  • FMA in or near San Mateo, CA

    Anyone know a good group in or near San Mateo, CA?

    I've just moved to the area and am looking.

    The groups I know about:

    There's a sayoc group in San Francisco
    There's an Inayan Escrima group in San Jose
    Michael Jen teaches Floro Fighting System in Milpitas (private or semi-private)

    I can probably hunt down contact numbers if you're interested.

    I train with a small training group that trains in a park near the Santa Clara/Cupertino border on Fridays at 11:30am. This isn't a formal class environment, but an informal training group. We basically train whatever anyone suggests -- typically some drills, some sparring (various rules), some situational defensive drills, etc. Contact me at [note those are zeroes in the word "h00k"] if you're interested.

      Those are great responses. Thanks heaps.

      I was looking for something closer to San Mateo or Burlingame as I work in Hayward and don't wish to drive all the way to San Jose, however.

      Do you know anything right between the geographical points you just mentioned?

      Again, thanks.

        Just by doing an internet search, I found Serrada Escrima Club located in San Bruno. It looks like they only have classes on Saturday. I'll keep looking though.

        I also found Gints Fighting Club. I believe they are in your area. These guys compete in Dog Brothers tourneys.

          AMOK in San Mateo

          One question we need to know is are you looking for a more blade oriented system? Adding to Joe's reply, I believe there is AMOK which is another blade oriented system in San Mateo.

          Just go to and then locations.

            Of your list above:

            One of my training partners also trains with Gints, and thinks very highly of him.

            From what little I've seen, AMOK is a great, no-nonsense style. For some reason I got the impression that Koki actually teaches his classes in Milpitas, not San Mateo, but definitely do contact him to see. I've sparred with Koki and he is very good.
