About The Curriculum

The curriculum at Panthera Fighting Arts is based on the program used by the MI association members developed by Cass Magda of the Magda Institute of Martial Arts. The program is a blend of four distinct yet highly complementary martial arts: Bruce Lee’s Jeet Kune Do, Buka Jalan Pentjak Silat, Kali/Escrima and Muay Thai boxing from Thailand. These arts form the nucleus of the curriculum taught at PFA. The training methods and techniques from other martial arts are also incorporated and utilized in are program. By blending these arts we feel are students develop a very well rounded self defense structure combining striking and kicking, grappling, weaponry and multiple attack strategy.
