    I have found this website, which appears to be linked to Doce Pares Europe.

    Not much info so it appears that the club is in its infancy. I don't personally know the instructor, but there are links to Grand Master Danny Guba, who I do know personally.

    Danny is quite protective of who he lets teach Doce Pares so it is worth contacting the instructor and checking that he is affiliated to Doce Pares Europe.

    More information on Doce Pares and Danny Guba can be found on our website and blog.

    Depending on how far your willing to travel (and i know this is an old thread:D so chancing you'll see this post) you could try the Jason Boh School Of Martial Arts in Portsmouth. He teaches a blend based on Jeet Kune Do Concepts/Prinicples, you can choose which arts to use to form that blend. One of the options is a blend of FMA's (including Kali/Arnis/Eskrima/Silat/Panantukan/doces pares and pekiti tersia). According to another member of this site he looks reputable based on his website as he's been trained by some of the masters...Dan Inosanto, Bob Breen and others..his website is here:

    During my correspondence with him while looking for somewhere to train he reccomeded i should train for a complete system...JKD prinicples flowing from Jun Fan kickboxing (using punches,kicks,elbows and knees from Muay Thai), grappling (based on chokes, take downs and locks/arm bars from Judo, BJJ and empty hand Kali) and the FMA's for weapon training (both while using a weapon yourself or when confronted empty handed by someone with a weapon).

    The System is similar to that taught to Matt Damon by Jeff Imada for the Bourne series of movies which was essentially a background in Filipino Kali with , as he puts it in his interview, some Bruce Lee stuff thrown in.

    Hope that helps.
