FaMA Weekly #83

In this issue of FaMA Weekly we wish Professor Zoro a happy birthday, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) Guest Instructor Professor Filipe sends some words of encouragement from Brazil, the FaMA team translates "stay safe/healthy", Kru Yo shares a new Muay Thai combo and finally FaMA's instructors reminisce about when and how they first got started in martial arts.

Happy birthday Professor Zoro!

We had another birthday boy for the month of May.

Though he likes to call everyone BIG MONSTER we all know him as the BIG SWEETHEART.


“When I Was A Beginner…”:

FaMA - Instructors Reminisce - Part One

It is hard to imagine our lean and mean FaMA instructors being novices, but yes, they were once fumbling beginners just like the rest of us. Financial challenges and negative self-image were just a number of the obstacles they had to face, but with perseverance and the right instruction, they have come this far. The fruit of their labour is what we get to experience and glean from today.

We decided to get them to take a trip down memory lane with stories from their early days in martial arts - and yes, it took a bit of digging up (for some more than most! 😉 ).

These stories serve as a reminder that every specialist has to start at the beginning. If they could get to where they are today, who is to say you can't? Be inspired not to quit as you read these candid memories.
