Founded by the late Grand Master Leo Giron, Bahala Na Martial Arts is a Filipino martial art of self-defense. The Giron Arnis Escrima system is comprised of 20 styles which incorporate sword, stick, knife, and empty hand techniques. The different styles are essential to learning how to survive and protect the most valuable gifts ever given to us: our lives and the lives of our families.
Grand Master Leo was a hero and veteran of WWII, where this effective system was used in combat and perfected. Now, under the guidance of the late Grand Master Tony Somera, Master Kirk McCune, and Master Joel Juanitas, we come together in downtown Stockton and all over the world to learn, preserve, and share the original teachings and traditions of Grand Master Leo, as well as the Filipino American history behind it.
We welcome all to join us at the Little Manila Center (521 E. Main St., Stockton) on Tuesdays from 5:30-7:00pm and Saturdays from 10:00am-12:00pm for free.
