My name is Glenn and I head up the NJ Chapter of MFA. I am a Guru under Guro Andrew "Tatoo" Filiardo, head instructor of the Modern Fighting Arts Academy, Massepequa, NY. Come and enjoy an incredibly effective martial art!!! Unlike other martial arts, Filipino Martial arts start with the weapon first. Single or Double ratten sticks are used to train reaction, speed, timing, and other essential attributes needed for self defense. Our system is mostly like the Balintawak System and we call it "The MFA Method of Modern Arnis". We will also explore the use of Kyusho (pressure point fighting) with the FMA techniques. I will supply all of the training equipment. FMA is a stick/sword/knife weapons based system, from which the empty hand techniques are derived. The weapon is taught first. FMA is very exciting and fun to practice. All ranges of combat (long, medium, short) will be explored and taught. I look forward to hearing from who ever is interested. Explore the fighting applications of Modern Arnis through the proven MFA Training Methods. We also do boxing/kickboxing and use these same techniques when we stick fight.
