Philippine Martial Arts Hall of Fame

Unit 210 C.K. Sy Bldg., Libertad St., Pasay City, Philippines

The goal of this institution is to recognize and promote the efforts of different martial artists,
particularly in the field of Filipino Martial Arts (FMA). The focus of awarding is geared primarily
towards full-blooded Filipinos who have contributed to the community through continually
practicing FMA or other martial arts. It also recognizes foreigners who are continuously practicing
and have supported FMA and the martial arts community. Others are also given credit for their
contribution in the martial arts community though they are not primarily practicing martial artists.
This is true to institutions who have given their effort into making development and progress for
martial artists and their community.
