To propagate and develop our own Filipino Martial Arts
The beauty of our own art is still unknown to many Filipinos. Unlike other Oriental Martial Arts which are constantly gaining attention and popularity,we could not deny the fact that the Filipino Martial Arts are more recognized ,accepted and highly admired by other nationalities than we Filipinos do.
It is in this pursuit that we at AFMC take our responsibility to propagate this art. We offer affordable training lessons from the most basic to advance degrees to all interested martial arts enthusiasts and students to appreciate the value of our art, our heritage from our great grand ancestors.

Espada y Daga / Sword and knife

B. Daga Sa Daga / Knife vs. knife
Daga Sa Daga (Filipino knife fighting) prepares the martial artist for close quarter self-defense against the small bladed weapon. Training in Daga Sa Daga develops fast reflexes and teaches the student the dynamics of knife movement, which are essential for effective self-defense against the knife.
Mano-Mano / Empty hands
The fighting arts have been a prominent part of Philippine history. From the beginning, Filipinos have defended their homes and villages with the fighting skills passed from generation to generation. In some ways, elements of these arts and skills still survive in many parts of the nation.Influenced by the movies and TV, most people have looked to other Asian martial systems for self-defense training. Until recently, few people, inside and outside of the Philippines, realized that the indigenous fighting arts of the Philippines represent some of the most effective hand-to-hand and bladed fighting methods in the world today.
Mano-Mano students learn very quickly how to defend themselves from all the attack ranges and angles. Mano-Mano consists of 20 basic strikes (hand, elbow, kick and knee techniques), 40 throwing sets and 20 self-defence release sets. Follow-up techniques include groundwork striking and submission holds.
Close Range Techniques
Dos Puntas (two techniques) is a system used in close range. The cane is held in the middle and both ends of the cane are utilised. The cane can be used in the same way as a knife, Dulo Dulo, punjo and a reinforced fist. Depending on the angle of the hand and the defence / offence line, the cane can be used to slash, stab, butt, block or disarm. An effective defence technique is a counter attack where, as the defender blocks with the hand, a strike directly to a muscle or nerve point is delivered. This temporarily paralyzes the opponent. Use of this system is trained with Palit Palit partner drills.
Tres Puntas (three techniques) is a system used in close range. Tres Puntas is nearly the same as Dos Puntas, the only difference being that there is knife on one hand and a cane on the other (held similarly as in Dos Puntas). Same principles as for Dos Puntas, Espada y Daga and Daga sa Daga apply. Use of this system is trained with Palit Palit partner drills
