Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry’s standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

What FMA Authority Are Saying...

I have known Manuel for many years in and out of the martial arts tournament circuit years ago. He exemplifies the martial arts spirit and ethics along with excellence as a martial arts practitioner. He values his friendship with respect and integrity. Manuel’s knowledge in the martial arts will give you a different insight and perspective in both the training and its concept.

Anyone studying under Master Taningco should be honored and take advantage of his dedication to the martial arts for 40 years.

World Martial Arts Champion

“I met Punong Guro Manuel Taningco at one of his Kali seminars in Bavaria, Illinois way back in 2000. I was thoroughly impressed by his art, his instruction, and his Warrior Spirit that I decided then that I would embark on an FMA journey. I stayed on and after some time I achieved my Black Belt in Willow System Filipino Kali, which Punong Guro Taningco’s family (Robles‐Willow) system. I am still involved in the FMA’s, but I still revert to PG Taningco’s teachings and the Warrior Spirit that he had somehow, through our interaction, instilled in me. I am forever grateful for all that he has taught me, especially the drive that he had instilled in me to continually improve myself in the Filipino Martial Arts and in life. PUGAY!”

Master Taningco has been a fixture in the Martial Arts community for more than three decades. He has been a constant proponent of not only high-quality martial arts instruction but of the importance of building characters as well. Graduates of his programs have gone on to not only be great martial artists and instructors but to become great people. Master Taningco to this day still strives to bring the best quality martial arts to his community, sometimes even at expense to himself. His contributions have been recognized by many legends of the martial arts community, and he is welcomed everywhere he travels. We are lucky to have him as part of our local community.

Aaron Boggs
Coach Ronin Training Center

“In 1995, I met Master Manuel Taningco at his Martial Arts training center in Ohio. Guro Manny trained me in his Filipino family fighting style. It is at that time that my fighting career took off and after 15 amateur bouts, we were still undefeated. I attribute this success to Guro Manuel Taningco training and coaching methods; he is one of the most accomplished Martial Artists I have had the honor to encounter.

Thank you Grandmaster Manuel Taningco for your hard work and dedication.”
