Filipino Martial Arts Training-Ages 14 and up
Filipino Martial Arts and PAC -“PAC” stands for Pacific Archipelago Combatives. PAC is a weapons-based martial art system with roots in the island chains of the Pacific. Sticks and bladed weapons are prevalent for farming purposes in many countries and have evolved into martial arts out of necessity. Although the system is primarily weapons-based, it also contains hand-to-hand and ground fighting elements because of its real-world foundation. Students can expect to learn drills that develop muscle-memory skills that will be applicable in self-defense. As a value added, students will develop strength, agility, and coordination. PAC is suitable for any size person as it does not require a great deal of strength to be proficient.
