Way of the Stick and Blade Tournament

Way of the Stick and Blade is Southern California’s premier Filipino Martial Arts tournament boasting one of the largest contingents of competitors from all across the globe.  This tournament is geared to promote and propagate the Filipino Martial Arts through competition.  It is our hope that this event will help give experience to any first time competitors as well as provide those long time practitioners an open venue to test and hone their skills.  Our events include Padded Stick, Padded Knife, Padded Blade, and Mixed Weapons.

Martial arts of any kind can participate in testing your blunt and edged weapons skills.  We just ask that we respect each other and the skill we bring to the table.  Limited supply of equipment will be available to use at the tournament.

The event is hosted by Pacific Media Expo and sponsored by Bunal Brand FMA Equipment.

Late fee of $20 will be assessed after Sunday October 14th, 2018 and $10 for additional events.
