Born in Cebu City, Philippines, Jenny came to Wisconsin by way of California, after training with many high ranking instructors in the system of Doce Pares Eskrima, including her father, Master Nito Noval.

 

 

Jenny Noval moved to Milwaukee in August 2006. Jenny’s quiet demeanor and modest nature might hide the fact that she is exceptionally accomplished for such a young woman; she has no fewer than seven world titles in Eskrima, representing the Philippines until 2002 and the United States since then. Currently, she teaches adult and kids Eskrima classes as well as Cardio Kickboxing, and is an important coach for the competitive stickfighters at Four Winds. She is also currently working on her Blue Belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.

Jenny is the daughter of Master Juanito Noval, originally from Mambaling, Cebu City, who now heads the Doce Pares Eskrima school in Sacramento, California. This gives her an impressive Martial Arts pedigree, as Master “Nito” and Jenny were personally instructed by the Grandmaster of the entire Doce Pares Multi-Style system, GM Dionisio CaƱete.
