The Event

FMA Festival 2020

The Filipino Martial Arts World Festival was organized to promote the art worldwide. Through intensive training lead by internationally known and high caliber FMA Instructors, the festival introduces and upgrades the knowledge of every practitioner in one event.

The First and Second Filipino Martial Arts Festivals were organized through the initiative and dedication of key people, Grandmaster Dieter Knuettel and Alfred Plath of Deutscher Arnis Verband. These events were held in Germany in 2002 and 2004 respectively. In 2006 the Third FMA Festival came home to the Philippines. The 2006 Festival was held in Tagaytay, Philippines spearheaded by GM Rene Tongson as the Chairman and the IMAFP team lead by Chairman Atty. Buddy Demaisip. Every FMA Festival since has been held in the Philippines and lead by an untiring organizing team driven by dedication to the art and its practitioners

The main aim of the event is to highlight the expertise of the local and foreign FMA grandmasters and to give an opportunity for practitioners to train with these grandmasters, explore the beauty of the island, experience the Filipino culture and understand the roots of the art in one event.
