FMA Festival 2013

This year’s FMA festival takes place on the weekend of 28/29 September in Luton.

Once again it will bring together the very best FMA teacher in the UK, teaching a huge range of arts and styles. In addition to the 14hours of training over 2 days, the Saturday night will see a gala awards evening.

Truly an event that must not be missed, there is nothing like this anywhere else in Europe! Whether you are interested in stick, sword, knife or empty hands, traditional or modern, there will be something for you, presented by the cream of British eskrima – people who have made Filipino fighting arts their lifetime study.

The price for the weekend is £80 (or £50 for 1 day), but if you book by 1 Aug there is an early-bird discount price of only £60 (£40 for 1 day).
