Our Kadan Martial Arts (KMA) classes are a blend of martial arts, conditioning and self-defense. It is an Olympic Taekwondo based art that also incorporates Hapkido, Judo, Western Boxing, and Jujitsu into one comprehensive program. Our Zoom live-stream classes are designed to share skills and techniques with fun and high-energy drills. Participants will get a great workout whether training on their own or with a partner.
Our lead instructors Kadante and Roland H. Ferrer were born into the martial arts. They bring an enthusiasm and positive energy to their classes and at the same time providing excellent martial arts instruction.
We are committed to helping and supporting each student develop his/her unique talents. Each of us has important gifts to share with the world. At Kadan Martial Arts, we use the martial arts as a tool to help our students unlock their gifts and focus on the possibilities. We have been dedicated for over 30 years to empowering humanity one student at a time. We believe that through positive and proactive involvement in the everyday lives of others we can help create a better community and a better future for ourselves and our children.
Our Kadan Martial Arts program was established in 1992 by Roland and Aurora Ferrer. KMA was originally known for its top level Taekwondo Athletes, ranking in Jr. & Sr. divisions in State, National, U.S. Team Trials and International Competitions. In time, raising their two sons at the studio, gave way to diversifying their programs. They became inspired to help people of all ages and physical abilities enjoy the benefits of the Martial Arts. Kadan became known as a "family school" a place where children from 8 years old to adults could train and grow together. We strive to make our environment a nurturing and positive place for everyday people to face their fears, overcome their challenges and walk the martial way.
We hope you will join us.

Our PaaMano Eskrima (PME) Zoom live-stream program is divided into two parts:
PME Skills and Drills (ages 7 yrs to adult) and
PME Techniques and Application (ages 12 yrs to adult).
PME Skills and Drills classes are fun and interactive. We break down the skill and then we hide the repetition in drills designed to foster muscle memory. PME Techniques and Application classes are designed to breakdown foundational techniques in an easy to follow format and then show their practical application.
The family classes focus on not only developing proficient FMA skills but also offers an opportunity for family members to learn together. Students will develop fundamentals and incrementally progressing to refine skills and applied practical application in double stick, single stick, knife, sword, empty hand, sweeps, disarms, counters, groundwork, kicks, elbows, punches and sayaws.
PaaMano Eskrima is a style of Filipino Martial Arts, founded in 1992 by GM Roland Ferrer. The style combines multiple styles of weaponry with empty hand concepts as well as kicking applications. Elbows, knees, takedowns and disarms are an integral part of the system. The Filipino Martial Arts are one of the very few martial arts that begin with a weapon and end with an empty hand. Eskrima is a flowing and rhythmic art. Its’ practice was outlawed by the Spanish conquistadores. The Filipino people had to find a way to keep their art alive to pass down to the next generation. They solved this problem by incorporating the martial art into some of their traditional dances.
Lead instructors Kadante and Roland H. Ferrer have evolved the PME system handed down by their father to include more interactive and reactive drills as well as skills bases games. PME is a great martial art for people of all ages as it is generally low impact and doesn’t require high line kicks.

Master Roland Ferrer has developed a unique program. He combines his 42 years of martial arts experience with the latest in exercises for longevity, proprioception and conditioning. Master Ferrer is in his 50s. While he still suffers from numerous injuries acquired throughout his 25+ years competing in the martial arts, he has retained much of his martial arts ability, flexibility and strength.
In this program he shares what he has learned and practiced over the years and how he's been able to retain so much of his physical ability. His vitality has given him the opportunity to continue training and coaching top level martial arts competitors well into his middle age. Drawing from his own experiences and adding the newest longevity and strengthening exercises makes this a program unlike any other he has ever offered.
Master Ferrer attributes his physical longevity in the martial arts to a combination of important factors and has incorporated these six factors into his Men's Martial Flow (MMF) program.
1. A lifelong dedication to the martial arts ("Life requires movement." Aristotle )
2. Facing ones fears ("The cave you fear to enter holds the treasure you seek." Joseph Campbell)
3. Being 100% responsible (There are only two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle. Albert Einstein)
4. Keeping an empty cup (“Empty your cup so that it may be filled; become devoid to gain totality.” Bruce Lee)
5. An attitude of gratitude ("Trade your expectations for appreciation and the world changes instantly." Tony Robbins)
6. Laugh (With the fearful strain that is on me night and day, if I did not laugh I should die. Abraham Lincoln)
Roland's Martial Flow is dedicated to helping students develop practical and applicable self-defense skills by providing invigorating workouts, challenging preconceived limitations, and special "muscle memory" training drills. There is no previous martial arts training required but students must possess a desire to train in an intense yet respectful environment and maintain a positive attitude. The classes are setup to accommodate for beginning to advanced fitness levels. The Program is open to participants 18 years and older by invitation only.
