The Empire Strikes Back

Welcome to Inland Empire Filipino Martial Arts!

Inland Empire Filipino Martial Arts (IEFMA) is your source for Sayoc Kali, Atienza Kali and Lacoste-Inosanto Filipino Martial Arts in Southern California’s Inland Empire.  IEFMA provides instruction in edged, impact and flexible weaponry as well as their unarmed compliments.  Commonly known as Kali, Eskrima or Arnis the Filipino Martial Arts encompass combative strategies and tactics born from centuries of combat, by Filipinos and Filipino Americans.  IEFMA is a Sayoc LA training group, and strives to continue developing and producing the capable individuals that Sayoc LA has fostered throughout Los Angeles and Southern California. 

Guro Joe Marana began his training in the Filipino Martial Arts in 1998, and has since then received instructorship in Sayoc Kali under Pamana Tuhon Christopher Sayoc, Sr., Atienza Kali under Tuhon Carl Atienza and the Atienza brothers, and The Filipino Martial Arts under Guro Dan Inosanto.  Coming up in Southern California under Guro Travis Downing and Guro Joey Pena, and continuing his training at the Inosanto Academy of Martial Arts in Marina del Rey, Guro Joe Marana has now taken his practice and instruction back home to the Inland Empire to contribute to the growth and perpetuation of these martial arts.
