Head over to Luneta on Sundays, a lot of instructors train there on the weekends.. Plus there are schools at UP Dilliman, GM Vic Sanchez is in Marikina, and I know of several Dekiti Tirsia instructors in the Manila area also.. I would also suggest Jerry Evangelista in Bacalaran as a couple of my people are training with him currently..
When i go to Manila i always try to visit Luneta like Bill stated and another great place is in Quezon city circle park on sunday and saturday i have ran into quite a few instructors there....
Also, check the Rapid Realismo Kali guys, I know they train in Luneta on Sundays as well. But best bet is just go to Luneta on Sundays. You're in Manila, so chances are there are plenty of schools, I know sometimes there are fliers in the Universities there.

Dexter Labonog and I had a chance to work out with you guys in 2001 you guys were great!
Hi Terry - thanks! I only joined Lapunti recently, but the QC Circle group has been there for quite some time already and practice is still held there every Sunday. I'm pretty sure you've practiced with some of the people still training in QC Circle until now. It's now part of our family tradition on Sundays - I go to QC Circle to practice Arnis with the rest of the Lapunti group, while my wife and kids go shopping and play at QC Circle.
Hello Fleur Moreno,
nice that you want to train the FMA!
I went to the Philippines in Januaray/February 2013 and I train under two instructors from Manila.
Sistema Birada from Rogelio Solar
and Laraw Kali Pamuok from Ronnie Royce Base
Both master are very good in techniques and very nice human behaviour! I'm very impressed of these Masters!
Best Regards from Berlin/Germany

Tabimina Balintawak (or Tabimina System as it's now called) holds a group class in Makati every M/W/F. It's quite special as it's the only group class left that Grandmaster Bobby Tabimina handles himself. The other group classes are handled by his sons.
