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.

Updates:

10/4/2013 – added Deftac RT

3/72014 – added Onyok, Spartacus, and Salavarria Gyms

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.

Malds Menzon is the owner and main writer for The Fit Pinoy blog. He's a law student, blogger, internet marketer and fitness enthusiast who enjoys writing about all the gyms he's been to and fitness classes he's tried. He spends most of his time either at the gym or studying/writing at one of the Starbucks places in the Metro Manila Area. He usually looks a little too serious but he's a nice guy so don't be afraid to say hi if you run into him :). You can follow or add him on Twitter and Google+ by clicking the appropriate buttons on your left (below the picture).

    Hi Malds. Why not add Arena Fitness here? Aside from our club offering Kendo, there is an Aikido group also based there. The gym management itself also offers Muay Thai/Kickboxing, and there is also a Capioera group that trains there from time to time. An eclectic selection of arts for anyone I think. ;)

    • Oks, I’ll do that.I dunno why I missed Arena Fitness and Kendo. But I didn’t know that they had Aikido, Muay, and boxing there. I knew there was a gym and I did see the ring near the basketball place. Dunno why that didn’t register till now though. Will add Arena later. Thanks for the heads up sir Inting, tama diba? lol I’m assuming from your email na that’s who you are :).

      And sorry I was never able to get back to training Kendo. I went home during the holidays last December, then I sprained my ankle in a climb and couldn’t really train in anything for over a month, then midterms came, and now it’s almost finals. Things sort of just started snowballing and I lost control of my schedule.

      Maybe once things lighten up a bit ti-timing ako ulit when you open up for beegginers this year para mga baguhan din kasama ko.

      Anyway, thanks for reminding me about arena.

      • pinoykendoka says:

        No worries Malds, I could certainly understand that life gets in the way of training sometimes. ;) Anyway if you can’t come back to IGA Kendo Club this March, then there is always the July and November classes. Good luck, and hope to see you again in training soon!

  2. Hi! Just want to let you know that FIST Gym is already offering Kali classes. Classes are held every Saturday at 10 AM. Excellent blog! Keep it up! :D

  3. Hi! I would like to add Onyok Velasco Gym which is in makati — they offer muay thai and boxing — their muay thai group is from the former Muay thai Association of the philippines makati chapter, which was from Bagtikan(MJL Bldg).

  4. Pau Lopez says:

    this is a good posts, just what everything i am looking for! thanks for this!

  5. Hi Malds!

    I would also want to add Spartacus Fitness and MMA gym! We already have two branches in QC. We have one in Congressional Ave., and one in Sikatuna Village! We offer Muay Thai, Boxing, MMA, Grappling, Wrestling, FMA, TKD, & Strength and Conditioning! :)

    https://www.facebook.com/SpartacusMMAgym

  6. thanks for the info mate :)..do you know what level there muay thai is in pinas? i was hoping to train whilst i was in makati but most of the gyms dont have much info re: muaythai. i would like to know what there training schedule is like etc. thanks again…

    • Hey Jay Dee, re the level of training. Most of the local fighting/boxing gyms like elorde will teach muay thai but it’s a bit too “commercial” so it doesn’t have the martial art feel that it should have. This is just from personal experience tho, so it could have been that training at the branch I went to wasn’t that good. Still, they’ll have all the things you’ll need to train, and if you’re lucky and you’re able to pick a really good trainer, then you might still get a decent workout.

      You might want to give Muay Thai Association of the Philippines (MAP) a try tho. I’ve never actually trained with them but considering that they’re focusing purely on Muay Thai, they should have better training there, at least compared to the other boxing/fighting gyms that also offer muay thai. They have a branch in makati, you might wanna drop by and see for yourself. http://mapmakati.weebly.com/

  7. Hi, if you’re looking for a trainer, I have good friend who is good in self defense; he’s good in Taekwondo & Wushu Sanshu. :)

  8. billy raymundo says:

    very useful info. can you include clubs/gyms just outside of metromanila i.e. paranaque and a little further south? thanks.

    • Hey Billy, will try to do that. Has been a while since I posted and updated the blog but I just got a Friend to help out with content so I’m sure I can get back to adding more content the next couple of months.

  9. Salavarria Boxing and Fitness Gym. G. Felipe st. near cor. Roosevelt ave. San Francisco Del Monte Q.C. Owned by the famous former WBC/WBA/OPBF flyweight champ Erbito Salavarria and his 2 sons as professional trainers.

  10. I don’t have their contact details, but I came across their FB page: https://www.facebook.com/salavarriagym?fref=ts

    Although I can’t be sure if this is legit account.

    They do teach boxing and fitness techniques, they train several amateur boxers and MMA fighters(for their striking discipline).

  11. Hi! Great list youve got here! Would it be ok to add our martial arts club? We are Pekiti Tirsia Kali Global City and we train at Track 30th and Trion Tower in Bonifacio Global City. Our head teacher is Guro Christophe Verdot. You can check out our website here: http://www.pekiti-global-city.com

    Thanks

  12. anyone knows where i can practice pencak silat?

  13. Is there any Wushu training center close to Global City, Taguig? Please advise. Thank you!

  14. Been looking for a list like this since I needed a place to train in boxing/muay after graduating. Thanks!
