FMA Xchange or FMAX is a “Meetup” comprised of all those who are interested in the art of Filipino Martial Arts. We embrace all those who are looking for “like minded” individuals striving to better themselves and their martial arts craft by being around those willing to exchange their knowledge and experiences. From advanced Arnis/Kali/Escrima students to the beginner, all are welcome. The Xchange is a place to meet-up with those willing to learn, teach and exchange their passion for the Filipino Martial Arts.
We are real people and not super athletes. We are a group who wants to learn the basics of Filipino Stick Fighting, also known as Arnis, Kali or Escrima, so that they can learn effective self-defense and get back to having better fitness and range of motion.
We offer two separate classes to choose from. The Friday night class is taught by its own certified instructor of Kombatan Arnis / Presas-Style who can teach you the basics as well as help you improve your awareness and reflexes. This class is geared towards the student wanting to get certified and belted in the art of Kombatan. Here you will learn Forms, Drills, and Concepts to help you attain that goal.
The Saturday morning class is more combat driven and has its foundation on Kali Ilustrisimo. The focus of the Saturday morning class is on a clear understanding of footwork, strikes and techniques. This class is taught by a seasoned practioner of Kali Ilustrisimo who has applied these skills throughout his civilian and military career in the NAVY. This class focuses on the “Xchange” of information and techniques, so those with experience and those without can share in the knowledge of FMA.
