About Rapid Arnis

Originally set up in 1993, Rapid Arnis was a system developed by Pat O'Malley with the goal of delivering authentic Filipino Martial Arts in the UK. In 2000 the name was changed to Rapid Arnis International, and the group is currently under the direction of committee members Andrew Janson (Committee Chairman), Jon Broster (Grading Panel), Kam Dhiman (Course Administrator), and Carl Rein (Networking and Affiliates).

Pat O'Malleychief Instructor
Pat is one of the most prolific characters in the development of FMA in the UK, and has travelled the globe as both student and instructor. Originally studying with Guro Bob Breen in JKD Kali, Pat quickly gained notoriety as an intense and ferocious fighter on the full contact scene. After winning 3 international titles, 5 European titles, and 32 UK titles, Pat went on to coach the British stickfighting team, who enjoyed numerous victories under his direction. Pat also coached Vale Tudo (no holds barred fighting), and founded the Black Eagle Society - full contact, anything goes stick-fighting where participants only have a helmet and gloves.
