Merry Christmas to all. From all of the Orihinal Doce Pares family


Emotional, pride, community, family, cultural, overdue, respect, celebration, historic. So many words to describe yesterday. Congratulations to the brown and black belts that leveled up. May the culture of the Philippines martial culture exude through you.


Have a fun and safe Halloween.

Testing with a little nostalgia. Where it all began.

Wrapped up our youth summer session with a sparring clinic. Thanks to all the participants and families that joined us. It’s all for you, our community.


Summer is funner with friends. These ones bring a lot of energy. Even on a Saturday morning.


Rotating partners down the line is of high value. It’s extremely important to feel different energy in order to learn how to adjust.

Adult classes in National City, Mira Mesa and Temecula.

Summer School’s in session. Great leadership from our existing students. Great energy from our summer session group. Great community all around.

It’s not too late. Text SUMMER to 619-603-6350 to get details about our Youth Summer Session running from July through the end of August.


There’s nothing like the bounce back you get when striking tires. Your hands will feel it.

Deadline is coming up. Text SUMMER to 619-603-6350 to get details about our Youth Summer Session running from July through the end of August.

This class we had our youth not only working on bunal (striking). We’re focusing on putting your emphasis into the strike to apply kusog bunal (power striking).


Reaction and timing play a key role when trying to apply a technique or effective strike.

Check out our schedule for adult and youth classes.

Some highlights from our K**I News segment for AAPI Heritage Month.

Photo Op at K**I News segment for AAPI Heritage Month.

There’s a rich history between the US Navy and the Philippines. Many of our practitioners were afforded the opportunities of this great country due to the US Navy. It was an honor to give back by providing a lesson in history, culture and martial arts from the Philippines. A perfect combination for AAPI Month and Memorial Day.


That’s what these guys decided to do. They disappeared before our demo. Then we found them adding a little dramatic scenery to their rehearsal.

Interested in having your youth learn Filipino Martial Arts this summer?

Text SUMMER to 619-603-6350 to get details.


Are you looking to have your loved ones try something new? Take this opportunity to introduce your youth to 🇵🇭Filipino Martial Arts 🇵🇭this summer. It's a great way to keep them moving, and to learn some SELF-DEFENSE.

Simply text SUMMER to 619-603-6350 to get details.



Take all opportunities to propagate and educate.

Thank you for collaborating to share the culture with others.


Each martial artist has their own journey. The talented Jessica Mercado () expresses her love of family, culture and martial arts in this docuseries episode.


Great timing for AAPI Heritage month. When will your journey begin?


It’s what’s on the inside that matters. Especially when the inside is cake.
Just a little something sweet for AAPI Heritage Month.

“Sweet” Memories with and .exevea.


Master Albert and G**o Jason ( ). Adult sessions. Saturdays 11am-12pm and 12:30pm-1:30pm.


Double stick sparring during session. These two had some great energy.


We still have photos trickling in from last week. We just had to highlight the Kuo brothers. From Hika being precise about his shots to Hiro teaching us all how much power he had by breaking 3 sticks in a youth division. They have a great support system with sister Hina jumping into training occasionally. Dad, Yannick, gets these two to training every week. Even their mom, Tomo, kept us all strong by helping the injured on tournament day, and days prior.


Tournament day you’ll see Corey picking his shots and being strategic. What you don’t see are training days where he is patient guiding his partners and playing nice when you know he can turn it up. G**o Jason has experienced the most padded stick competition in our group and he’s picked up on Corey’s abilities. That says a lot. This tournament wasn’t the one Corey came out on top, but watch out for this guy. He’s just warming up.

The man behind the mask is eskrimador Jesse Estola’s . One of the most positive and high energy team members to have representing. A pleasure to watch. No questions asked, simply jumps in the ring and has a good time. He brought it and came with a win. Walked away after a loss in a later bracket, just had a huge smile saying, “that was fun”.

Now that’s the attitude that makes a winner. Congrats on a job well done, and continued growth. Mabuhay!

Congratulations to Jessica Mercado on her 2nd place win.


IT TAKES A VILLAGE! This is just some of our “village” that helps raise the practitioners not just as consumers of the art, but as contributors as well. This is instilled in us through guidance of Master Albert and Master Dovie.

It’s not easy to put these events together, but, , and others went through great lengths to pull this off.


We had one rule every student MUST follow on tournament day. HAVE FUN!

We’re extremely proud of our youth that came out to participate and support.

✅Have Fun
✅Build community
✅Personal growth


Sparring will reveal areas we need to work on. Your partner is not “beating” you. They are merely showing you your exposed areas. Embrace the lesson in the controlled environment. It’s the best place to learn your areas of improvement.


Even with protective gear, one must always respect the weapon.


Adult sessions weekly. Inquire if you’re interested.


Waking up on Saturdays is not easy, but these guys do it.
