Martial Arts Training in Manila – A Continually Growing Directory with Maps
Decided to compile a list of the Martial Arts Gyms in Manila. I haven’t been to all or even most of them so I’ll add the contact numbers and website of each one. I’ll also try to add a Google Maps picture so it’s easier for you to find them :).
Feel free to get in touch with whichever gym is closest to you if you’re interested in training.
Also This will be a continually growing list so if you know of any that aren’t here or of any new ones, then please let me know so I can add them.
And if you spot any mistakes or anything that needs to be updated I’d love a heads-up as well.
To make searching this post easier, you might want to use “Ctrl + F” and type in the gym you’re looking for or your area (if you’re looking for one close to where you live/work). This way you can find what you need quickly.

That’s it for now.
I know the list is far from complete but I’ll be updating this as I find more gyms (and when I have some extra time).
Again, if you find a mistake please let me know so I can edit this. Also if you know of any gym/class/group that’s not here, then please let me know so I can add them.
Thanks and hope you find this useful.
