  • Master Alex is the best in his field. He gives his 100% when he trains his students. He molded my son from the 5yo shy and unsure boy that he was to the 8yo competent and confident boy that he is now. I would strongly recommend this school to all parents who wants their children to learn self discipline, focus, respect and learn martial arts while having fun at the same time.

    Thank you Alex for all the hard work!!!

  • A fantastic place to train and learn. Alex and the team are very supportive, dedicated and committed to bringing out the best in their students. Everyone is friendly, respectful and welcoming to new starters. I cannot give the learning experience at Hybrid-FMA enough praise.

  • Master Alex and his students are experts in martial arts. He teaches a solid and useable style, from knives to sticks to empty hands, he knows his art. The gym is very big and well equipped, the people are friendly and very helpful. Its the perfect place to train martial arts. He even welcomes people from other countries in his gym ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • Truly a great place to learn martial arts in an enjoyable and safe environment. Instructors and students are all welcoming and encourage each others development.

    Training expanding from traditional Filipino Martial Arts to combat sports to self defense and fitness. Get in the best physical shape while learning skills that could make all the difference when you need it most.

  • I’ve been training with Alex now for over 10 years, it’s the only purpose made gym for Eskrima, Kali in London.

    Alex is an excellent instructor, who actually fights and is 6 times world champion, and is genuinely a very nice person.

    He comes highly recommended! ๐Ÿ™‚

  • This is an excellent gym to learn an exciting and challenging Martial Art.

    Training is available six days a week with instruction from a multiple world champion.

    There is no age limit as we train a kids class from around 5 years old to some of our senior members at 60 plus (me included)

    There is a well documented syllabus and regular tests and grading to measure advancement and all members are encouraged to compete in regular British, European and World Championships in several categories.

    I highly recommend taking the time to visit and see for yourself the high standards and friendly atmosphere on any night of the week.

  • Authentic Fillipina Art & teaching. Great gym and friendly people who are true champions. Awesome & lovely club ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฝ

  • Great atmosphere, brilliant instructor, support and friendship from classmates. Lots of great activity to get involved in. Community action, demonstrations and competitions that you can take part in. Lots of great achievements and medal winners. Some many aspects of martials available to learn. Best of all is the first lesson is free, 3 years and I’m still enjoying training.

  • An absolutely fantastic place to learn one of the most technically challenging, practical and beautiful martial arts there is! Master Alex is second to none when it comes to fighting and teaching ability.
    I started when I was 32 years old and 110kg’s in weight (massively overweight). Under Master Alex’s tutelage, my weight fell off by the bucket load as I progressed and my self confidence grew exponentially!

    I highly recommend this gym to anyone thinking about starting a martial art. It has such a friendly atmosphere and is a fantastic place to be able to push yourself and grow. This gym and this art are now a way of life for me and I could never see myself not training!!

    Please come along and check us out!

    Julie Avenell
  • Excellent tuition in Doce Pares, a Fillipino martial art combining weapons and empty hand techniques. A friendly and fun club and an addictive martial art. Brilliant!

  • This is great place to come and learn a new skill or to improve your overall fitness. Alex is a great teacher and all the other students are really supportive and are always willing to help you progress.

  • Fantastic place to learn a new martial art called Escrima which has so much to offer, make some new friends and enjoy the whole experience… pleased to have found this place. Saj

  • Very practical martial art, dynamic, and fluent but also highly adaptable when rhythm is interrupted mid fight. Structure, progressively, based on use of weapons first, mainly stick and knife, having same basis of movement used in empty hand having only range difference i.e short, medium, long. Has been used in Hollywood films for decades without the recognition it deserves, being used and adapted by stuntmen, but only popularised by blockbuster films and coming to light recently.

    Alex is, literally, a world class instructor and learning from him, whether you are a beginner to a more advanced participant, you can benefit from the wisdom and techniques he has to offer. I have been training with him for 5 years, as well as my 2 children, who do the adult class. If unsure about Escrima/Kali/Arnis or Filipino Martial Arts, just check out videos on YouTube. You wonโ€™t be disappointed if youโ€™re interested in martial arts.
