so he must be taught to fear YOU! Whatever the risk, and at whatever the cost, FIGHT BACK!"

What people say about Guro Ferd and The Hastartes

Ferd's a great teacher. He takes time to make sure people understand each drill, and pushes them to do it. The system is no frills/ no BS FMA for real fighting.

- Joseph B., Mountainview, CA.

Guro Ferd is a fantastic teacher with a wealth of knowledge and experience.

- Paul B., Drain, OR.

I have been training under Ferd for about 3 months. I had prior experience with Filipino Martial Arts and he has been able to acknowledge that as well as teach me various things I don't know and make me better. The class is focused on actual fighting for self defense and has the goal of preparing people for sparring. It is a great group of guys in the class and we have a lot of fun. Ferd knows what he is teaching and I enjoy the class.
