Ferd is a gem to have as your instructor! If you are in San Diego and love close quarter kali martial arts, train with Ferd! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

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.

Guro Ferd is an awesome instructor. Patient and more than willing to teach. Great time. Thank you Ferd for sharing. Look forward to the next seminar. Hopefully he will be teaching here. Much love and respect.

This man's skill set is amazing, and he is a pretty awesome teacher. If you get the chance to train with him, you owe it to yourself! Check him out over at 1stspear. He is a great representation of PTK-SMF.

Hi Ferd. I wanted to let you know that in the few training sessions that I've had, I've learned a lot more than I could have imagined... I've had the privilege of studying karate, hapkido, tai chi chuan and krav maga. I can honestly say that I have not, previously, had practical training that targeted the interaction between students armed with stick and knife as I have had with PTK-SMF. I am enjoying training immensely!
