The Taiwan Filipino Martial Arts Association & Jeet Kune Do Association, are directed by the group Uno Mas, and located in Taipei.

We are a group of lovers of the Martial Arts that we tried to promote and to present the Jeet Kune Do, Filipino Martial Arts, Muay-Thai and others Marital Arts accross the people in Taiwan.

Nowadays systems as: Jeet Kune Do, Kali-Arnis-Eskrima, Muay-Thai, Wing-Chun, Silat, etc, are very famous and expands quickly. There are many reasons for this and one of the more important is the effectiveness that they have in combat; also, we could add the easy apprenticeship, their logic principles and the feasible price of equipment.

If we take the Filipino Martial Arts: Kali-Arnis-Eskrima as an example, the sticks used are made of "rattan", but any type of material can be used. We recommended to work with different types, to get use to the characteristics of different materials. The basic principles of this art can be applied almost to any type of weapon: long cane, sword, knife, axes, nunchakus, etc....., including at the empty hands. After some time of training, you can discover that any objects can be used like a weapon, from shoes to newspapers....

The Filipino Martial Arts "Kali" is a complete systems, covering from weapons techniques, to boxing (Panantukan), kicking (Panadiakan or Sikaran) and grappling (Dumog).

In our classes, the student can to choose freely the system or systems they want to learn (Jeet Kune Do, Kali, Wing-Chun, Muay-Thai or Silat) but we try to enforce and implant in our students to be Simple, Direct and Non-Classical and also to use the: No limitation as the limitation, No way as the way. In others words, we teach them the Concepts of the Jeet Kune Do. But most importantly and above all, is to be yourself, without imitating anyone.
