Good Job everyone!
You all looked great, and made me proud to be your instructor!

Thank you Sifu Raffi Derderian for another amazing seminar this weekend! If you weren't there, you missed out!

I am truly blessed and honored to have a Sifu like Raffi Derderian! He has been my Instructor in JKD and Kali since the late '90's and still continually shocks me with his knowledge and skill! From taking older material and reworking it in new ways [opening my eyes], to overwhelming me with a vast amount of new material to chew on, I cannot express my gratitude enough.

But above all of that he is a truly genuine and caring person who gives of himself many times over! I am forever grateful to be his student and indebted to him for his outpouring of wisdom and guidance over the years, for molding me into a martial artist, and mentoring me as a Martial Arts school owner.

Sifu, you are an inspiration.

Discount still available for Sifu Raffi's seminar on Saturday! -

[03/08/19]   Hey all... Save the Date!
Sifu Raffi will be here on Sat March 30th for a great seminar!

[03/08/19]   There are some great changes coming to AFMA! Stay tuned!

To be a good martial artists, you need to learn a variety of techniques… to be a great martial artists, you have to be able to implement those techniques in a fight.
Physical fitness is just as important as mental fitness. So here at AFMA, we focus on both 💪🏻 🧠

[12/26/17]   Merry Christmas Everyone!

[12/22/17]   School Closings and Holiday closings...

Greetings and Happy Holidays!

This is just a quick note to inform you all of some classes that are canceled due to either weather or Holidays.

There will be no class,
Tonight - due to weather
Monday Dec 25th - Christmas
Monday Jan 1st - New Years Day

We WILL have our other regularly scheduled classes tomorrow and all next week, including Saturday.

In the future, I will be making "last minute" calls on class cancelations due to weather during the winter months.

Please be aware in the future, if there is more than 3-4 inches of snow on the ground before class even starts and it is still supposed to continue snowing [conditions getting worse] during class, I will most likely cancel.

I'm already hearing stories of fishtailing cars today, so to keep it safe, we are cancelling class tonight.
Thank you for understanding!

I hope you all have a very safe and happy holiday season!
Merry Christmas!
Happy Chanukah!
Love, Peace, and Joy to you all!
