Welcome to the home of the British Balintawak Arnis Association.

The BBAA provides the very best instruction in all aspects of Balintawak and self defence training, giving importance to both the physical and psychological aspects of fighting and self defence. 

Balintawak uses a single stick as the primary training tool to install the principles and concepts of combat.

In our experience this can prevent people taking up this art as it is often said you do not carry a stick around.

But as you see below our training methods covers all aspects of personal protection training with or without weapons.

You choose.
