Mr. Fogal taught me as a kid. I love the practical life lessons he teaches our two children; like what you should do if you are lost and if strangers approach you. Already my daughter is much more self-confidence. We've attended other schools and this is by far the best, a perfect balance of fun and discipline.

I'd like to say that Sensei Juan is a great teacher and friend, I have great respect and love for him and his family. I Like to say I couldn't have asked for a better teacher when I started. He helped me helping me find understanding and common ground with life's changes. Has a real passion for martial arts that can be seen and shared threw all his students. And I have had the privilege to train under him as his student. I learned a lot from him and still have so much to learn. I Recommend him for anyone interested in self defense or martial arts for any age.

Sensei Juan has taught my daughter so many valuable lessons and I am so happy that she has such a positive role model in her life. FMAC has become a home-away-from-home for me, and it even offers adult classes that you should definitely check out! A big thank you to all the Fogal family!

Prepare to Defend Yourself in Any Situation

Go Beyond Traditional Martial Arts and Learn to Fight

Our adult martial arts program, called Systema (which means "The System"), is the fighting method taught to men and women in many Special Forces Units, Body Guard Programs, and it has been adopted by law enforcement around the world. It teaches students how to fight in real-world situations so that they’re never caught unprepared.

Do you want to learn how to

defend yourself in all situations?

You feel vulnerable and want to defend yourself and your family.

You want an intense workout that builds muscle and increases dexterity.

You want the self-esteem boost that comes with knowing you can fight.

The dangers of the world are endless

Luckily there is a comprehensive solution…

Learning to defend yourself is about more than simply wielding a weapon. The truth is that amateurs who have weapons end up getting hurt with them more often than predators do – and that’s a real problem. There’s no point in arming yourself if you’re not also in the right condition to be able to act if you or someone you love is threatened.

Our Systema martial arts program is popular because it takes self-defense and turns it into an art form.

you will grow with every class!

Our Adult Systema program teaches you how to defend yourself by building on your body’s natural reactions to being attacked and giving you the tools – and the strength – to disarm and defeat your opponents. As you train, you’ll build stamina and hone your reflexes until you are a relaxed, confident, fighting machine.

Defend Yourself in Any Situation

Nobody wants to be the victim of a crime, and yet it happens to people every day. The best way to avoid being harmed is to know how to defend yourself.

Systema training emphasizes teaching students how to react in real-life situations. It’s not theoretical – it’s practical, effective and it's had nearly a thousand years of real-world pressure testing!

You won’t have to worry about figuring out how to translate your Systema training outside of the studio, because our instructors will help you do it.

Adult Self-Defense and Fitness is a Killer Workout

It can be hard to get a great workout without someone to push you. If you want to be a total badass, the treadmill isn’t going to get you there.

Systema training is intense...but FUN! Repetitive kicking, punching, and ground grappling burn a ton of calories and requires mental and physical toughness. You’ll use every muscle.

Whether you want to lose weight or just get in the best physical shape of your life, Systema training can help you do it.

Practical Self-Defense at its Best

One of the hardest things about learning self-defense is overcoming your natural instincts to learn new moves.

Systema works with those instincts – such as bringing your hands up to push a bothersome fly away from your face – and turns them into powerful moves that allow you to defend yourself and drive attackers away.

You’ll learn to use the tools you have and combine them with martial arts applications in all forms of self-defense situations.

Relieve Stress and Anxiety

We all have to deal with stress and anxiety in our lives – from work, family, and everything else. You need to have a healthy outlet for it to stay healthy.

Systema training banishes stress by teaching ages-old breathing and body tension secrets. When you’re working out, you need to give over your body and mind to the process. There’s no room for worrying.

By the time you’re done working out, you’ll be flooded with endorphins and feeling a serious sense of accomplishment – and your stress will be under control.

I'd like to say that Sensei Juan is a great teacher and friend, I have great respect and love for him and his family. I Like to say I couldn't have asked for a better teacher when I started. He helped me helping me find understanding and common ground with life's changes. Has a real passion for martial arts that can be seen and shared threw all his students.
