American Jiu-Jitsu & Pekiti-Tirsia Kali at American Jiu Jitsu Center Of Manhattan American Jiu Jitsu Center Of Manhattan 1 Photo

American Jiu Jitsu (AJJ) is a scenario-based self-defense art that teaches students to respond to realistic situations with minimal effort using principles of physics, balance, and knowledge of human anatomy.

AJJ draws from traditional martial arts such as Aiki jiu jitsu, Daito-ryu, Aikido, Kali, Judo and Muay Thai to teach students effective timing, and use of footwork and body positioning for prompt neutralization of an attack while avoiding use of strength against strength.

Our classes are all levels. Our higher level students pride themselves on the support and guidance they give our new and less advanced students. We encourage students who have not had any maritial arts training to join our dojo.

PTK-SMF™ is The Authentic Pekiti-Tirsia Kali system of Close-Quarters Combat Blade Fighting.

​Pekiti-Tirsia is a proven system of Combat Strategy and Tactics that provides Protection from Strikes and Attacks, Destruction of Opponents Weapons, and Domination of any Combat or Self-Defense situation, executed with techniques that Attack, Quarter, and Neutralize Single or Multiple Opponents.

Wing Chun Kung Fu at Michael Militano Wing Chun Kung Fu Michael Militano Wing Chun Kung Fu 1 Photo

Master Instructor — Michael Militano. From an early age, he demonstrated natural talent as an athlete and fighter, but after years of studying boxing, wrestling, some Karate. Jiu Jitsu, gymnastics, and various weaponry, he found his niche in Wing Chun (under the sole instruction of Grandmaster Jason Lau). After only three years of study, Grandmaster Jason Lau appointed Michael Militano to teach, and soon thereafter, to take over the school when Grandmaster Lau left New York.

​Instructors as well as many students from other martial arts schools have turned to Sifu Militano's expertise to enhance their knowledge of fighting - and for good reason. His competitive students (of all levels) have won numerous tournaments when competing against advanced level martial artists. Sifu Militano has taught Wing Chun to law enforcement instructors, military personnel, children, the blind and visually impaired, and he was invited to train the U.S. National Guard.
