About Us

Our Story

Tandang Garimot Martial Arts & Wellness was opened in October of 2012.  Head instructors Mike “Tandang” Eugenio came together to create a comprehensive training program for adults and children to improve health and build strength physically, mentally, and spiritually.  Mike ran a martial arts studio for several years in Chicago’s lakeview neighborhood.  Since then, the school has moved to the Depaul University Campus, and  Guro Mike now teaches alongside other instructors of Garimot Arnis as they continue to learn from him, and pass their collective knowledge to more junior students.
