Welcome to Balintawak Olympia!
One of few schools in the area dedicated to the Filipino martial arts, we are the local training group of the greater International Balintawak Organization headed by Grandmaster Bobby Taboada. Our Pacific NW regional community is overseen by our liaison Guru John Soriano and consists of training groups in Bellevue, Bellingham, Bothel, Covington, Marysville, Renton, Seattle, Spokane, Tri-Cities, Vancouver, and Portland, OR.
Our mission is to:
Create excellence in the understanding and application of the Balintawak cuentada system
Foster a safe space of high moral character promoting humility, respect, and responsibility, and self defense for self, family, and community
Promote success, allowing students, practitioners, and teachers to reach their goals
We train from 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm every Sunday in the Doc Becker Room above the Eagle's Ballroom at 805 4th Ave E, Olympia, WA 98506. Visitors are welcome to drop by and observe the class.
