Welcome to the official site of Balintawak Seattle
Balintawak Seattle was established in 2008. It is the first Balintawak organization established in Washington State and one of only a few schools dedicated to the Filipino martial art of Balintawak Eskrima in the Pacific Northwest. The original group comprised of a select group of individuals who trained out of the garage of Guro John Soriano. In 2011 the group moved to it's present location, the Filipino Community Center of Seattle.
Balintawak Seattle is a proud member of the International Balintawak Organization headed by Grandmaster Bobby Taboada. As regional organization Balintawak Seattle is comprised of training groups in the following Washington State cities: Bellevue (Factoria), Bellingham, Covington, Bothell, Marysville, Olympia, Spokane, Tri-Cities, Vancouver, and Portland, Oregon. Please see our "Community Links" page for instructor contact information.
Our mission: "To preserve and promote the art of Balintawak eskrima, support the martial arts community, and be a positive example - advocating friendship and brotherhood."
