Master the ancient battle skills of FMA Sticks at Newport City Martial Arts

If you’re serious about martial arts combat you should consider our FMA classes. Our Filipino Martial Arts classes (FMA Stix) primarily focus on close-quarter combat with rattan sticks. This is a full contact martial arts class and the sticks are treated as extensions to the hands.

As a result we only offer this class to adults aged 18+. Along with FMA Sticks, our training will also teach you ’empty hands combat’ and how to turn everyday objects into lethal weapons. This class is definitely not for the faint-hearted.

What is Filipino Martial Arts?

Designed for close-quarter fighting, Filipino Martial Arts is an unrelenting set of combat skills that incorporates both Western and Eastern fighting forms. Popular FMA styles include Arnis, Kali and Esckrima. FMA was developed purely as a need for self-preservation.

The practical combat skills are designed to win at all costs against any type of assailant. Consequently Filipino Martial Arts can be seen as brutal and wholly unforgiving in nature. Join our Filipino Martial Arts classes at Newport City Martial Arts today!
