Pintados FMA

Situation Dictates What is Right

We are a unique system because we prioritize a free-formed style of learning; the strikes, counters, movements, and techniques are based on the connections and understanding of the art - not on patterns or sequences.

About Pintados FMA

The Painted Warriors of Samar

Founded in 2012 in Toronto by GM Oliver "Pintados" Garduce, with the objective of promoting  Arnis/Kali/Eskrima in the GTA to adults who are interested in learning the native art from Samar, Philippines.

We aim to educate the practitioners in the various weaponries used throughout the Philippines using the following as the baseline:

  • Baston (wooden cane)

  • Bolo (machete)

  • Daga (knife)

  • Espada y daga (sword and dagger)

  • Mano y mano (empty hands)

  • Sparring (padded sticks)

By studying in Pintados FMA, we will give you the knowledge and understanding of our martial culture as well as self-awareness and self-defense skillset that allows you to make the best decisions in stressful situations.
