DAMA JKD Locations

The instructors on this page are the only ones authorized to teach martial arts as instructors under Sifu Raffi Derderian. There are NO other instructors teaching outside of the Derderian Academy that are not listed here.

We have a strict criteria we use to license instructors. There are some individuals who have trained briefly under Sifu Raffi and claim to be instructors in our programs. These individuals have never even remotely reached the qualifications necessary to be a certified instructor. Unless their name is here, they are NOT certified by Sifu Raffi. Don't support fraudulent JKD/Kali instruction!

There are more groups still in development. If you are interested in becoming a legitimate instructor of any of our programs, contact us.

Feel free to contact any one of our representatives via e mail for any questions regarding instruction in their areas.
