Join FASA sa UW as the Director, Jay Ignacio, and Co-Producers, Sonny Sison and Kent Vives,fly into Seattle to screen this incredible documentary exposing the true beauty and roots of Filipino Martial Arts. Despite FMA’s success around the world, it has been neglected, and even forgotten in the Philippines. Its importance has not been fully recognized. Take this journey with us as we delve into FMA’s past and its international effect today.

“FMA is most probably our country’s greatest cultural export, and we Filipinos don’t even know it.” – Jay Ignacio

| FMA FACTS |

– For at least 30 years now, FMA has been considered the most effective weapon-based fighting system by both Military and Law Enforcement systems.
– FMA has also been the martial art of choice for Hollywood’s top fight choreographers such as Jeff Imada (The Bourne Identity, The Bourne Supremacy, The Bourne Ultimatum, The Book of Eli, Lethal Weapon), Robert Alonzo (Mission: Impossible 3) and Jon Eusebio (The Bourne Legacy).
– FMA was first introduced to Hollywood in 1973 by Bruce Lee in the film “Enter The Dragon”, after he had learned it from Dan Inosanto.
– All of the above artists were interviewed for the film!
– The Philippine Government formally recognized Arnis as the country’s own martial art by way of the Arnis Law or Republic Act 9850, declaring Arnis, Kali or Eskrima as the National Sport and Martial Art.
