Black Belt Level Effective Streetwise Self-Defense Cross-Training with Traditional Core Values.

FFMMA AMERICAN KARATE is an age-appropriate no-nonsense self-defense school that teaches conflict resolution in Pike Creek Wilmington Delaware. Classes offer confidence, respect, focus, discipline, control, and perseverance that teaches students to believe in themselves through hard work. Students learn that it is important to set goals and to have high expectations for themselves. Each and every class Belt rank is earned through tough, yet fun training drills that develop physical fitness and mental awareness.

FFMMA is a school of higher learning, in which students learn to empower themselves and raise their level of personal success through the practice of martial arts. The tradition of structured classes, uniforms, and etiquette are an elemental part of our community. Students learn battle-tested, street-smart, effective self-defense skills.  We combine blocking, striking, kicking, and evading skills with the sweeping, throwing, and grappling skills; blended with joint manipulation, pressure points, and restraining techniques. 

Although our training retains all the important aspects of a traditional teaching system, the FFMMA methods have been Americanized and progressed with modern times. In place of a rigid, dogmatic approach to teaching, the FFMMA methods rely on an understanding of modern-day street fighting situations and environments, while learning practical hand-to-hand combat skills to remove the threat. With over 40 years of experience, our methods of teaching have been proven to produce highly skilled and knowledgeable students. 


OVERVIEW  - American Karate is one of the original Mixed Martial Art dating back to the 1940s. Our training is both classical "old school" and modern "new school" by evolving with mixed martial arts while continuing the traditions of the past. Our curriculum is designed to provide real, streetwise self-defense skills from practicing CQC techniques, weapons, multiple attacker drills, forms, or “katas”, blended with MMA drills such as point and submission sparring, round timers, cardio, and pad work. 

STYLE - The term "American Karate" is an Americanized version of karate that was formed from modifying or combining various martial arts for striking, grappling, and weapons. We believe the best style is no style as Bruce Lee once said. "When one has no form, one can be all forms; when one has no style, one can fit in with any style" Bruce Lee. As the Father of Mixed Martial Arts, Bruce Lee heavily influenced American Karate philosophy to absorb what is useful, discard what is useless, add what is your own.

HISTORY - Karate was first introduced to American servicemen after World War II by Japanese masters which included Kempo, Judo, Jujitsu, Kendo, and Kobudo arts. For decades American Karate began to grow as an eclectic mix of systems and styles. Practitioners traded the best techniques from many styles while following a traditional format that includes core values and belt rank. It is difficult to pinpoint the exact numbers of American Karate styles, however, it’s an art that has become a mainstay in American culture.

PHILOSOPHY - The ability to diffuse trouble without resorting to violence is regarded as the highest level of skill. Nevertheless, as a last resort, American Karate remains true to its combat roots as a defensive art that enabled practitioners to defend themselves in the event of a personal attack with devastating techniques. Practitioners focus on self-defense scenarios to disable attackers quickly with multiple pinpoint rapid-fire strikes to vital areas of the human body that lead to locking and takedowns to be used to set up compliance holds.

MISSION - American Karate offers character and physical development though its mental and moral aspects to target the overall improvement of the individual. With confidence in self-defense abilities, fear is banished and trouble avoided. The ultimate goal of the practitioner is one of humility and restraint. The practitioner is passive, the standards by which they live dictates that the student does not seek trouble but they are prepared to respond with practical and effective techniques that can neutralize the assailant in the blink of an eye.​'


AMERICAN KENPO -  Founder Ed Parker

This American style, created in 1957, Quick, rapid-fire vital point punches, kicks, thrusts, hammerfists, finger pokes, back knuckles, handswords. While American Kenpo uses techniques from many different martial arts, James Mitose’s Kosho Shorei-Ryu Kenpo is seen as one of the major influences on or the predecessor to this martial arts.


This American style, created in 1963, to use the opponent’s own strength against them rather than pitting one’s strength directly against the adversary. The main focus of Ju-Jitsu is not striking but in grappling your opponent into submission using joint manipulation and balance breaking. Multiple attacks, weaponry, striking, grappling, rolling, and throws are disciplines incorporated into the training.

AMERICAN GOJU - Founder Peter Urban

This American style, created in 1967, blended the strong snap techniques of the Okinawan style with the dynamic and free technique of the soft Chinese Kempo. It was thus that the beginning of the highly distinctive Gojuryu Karate system was evolved: Go = HARD Ju = SOFT. Practitioners feel as if they are martial arts technicians, in that they utilize angles to deflect strikes rather than trying to meet strength with strength.



This American style, created in 1973, Made up of kicking and punching with a strong emphasis on knee and elbow strikes, blocks, and evasive maneuvers, clinching, headbutting, and even takedowns or throws. American kickboxing is a marriage of the two styles. It has elements of both karate and boxing.

AMERICAN ARNIS - Founder Remy Presas

The American style, created in 1983, unified teachings of Modern Arnis combined with Tae Kwon Do (“Korean Karate”) into a single curriculum. Arnis uses a rattan stick usually about 28 inches as a weapon with pattern movements while Tae Kwon do focuses on kicks. To avoid any confusion with the Modern Arnis, Presas gave his system a new integrated approach a new name, “American Arnis”.


SCENARIOS -  Techniques are groups of basic moves arranged in a pre-defined sequence to illustrate a possible defense for a given scenario.

FREESTYLE - Techniques not pre-defined done spontaneously without a thought in a natural manner.

DRILLS - Including Round Timer, Breakfalls, Locks Patterns, Block Patterns, Shadow Boxing, Heavy Bag, Pads etc...


COMPLIANCE - Physical techniques that law or military use to obtain effective control.


KIHON - The term is used to refer to the basic techniques that are taught and practiced as the foundation.

KATA - Detailed choreographed pattern movements made to be practiced alone, and also within groups and in unison when training.

KUMITE -  Is the part of karate in which a person trains against an adversary, using the techniques learned from all training.

MODIFICATION - In contrast to many martial arts, students are encouraged to develop their own "expression" of the art. 



Our Certified Black Belt Team of Instructors Have Over 40 Years of Experience with A Deep Linage. 


Having an instructor like Grand Master Sensei Harman who is skilled in multi-discipline mixed martial arts is rare. He founded The Fusion Freestyle Mixed Martial Arts Studio of American Karate in 2006 to provide the Pike Creek Wilmington Delaware community with a place for students to learn anti-victim martial arts skills that will bully-proof them for life. His martial arts lineage began by being raised by a Police officer and Military serviceman that taught him real-world hand-to-hand combat tactics throughout his upbringing. At age 7, he started American Tangsoodo Karate before moving to American Taekwondo Karate at 14. At age 18 he took American Boxing into his 20's. In his 20's Sensei became an assistant instructor in American Goju Jitsu Karate a form of Kempo and Jujitsu where he learned the skill of teaching and American Kobodu Weapons. He then moved on to American Kenpo while also cross-training in American Arnis, American Jiujitsu, and American Judo and trying Vee-Jitsu. Sensei went on to train under Joe Lewis in his American Karate Fighting system. Joe Lewis was part of the Tracy Kenpo Jiujitsu organization an offshoot of American Kenpo where he adapted Kenpo with American Kickboxing. Joe Lewis was also trained by Bruce Lee who was trained under the famous Ip Man so Lewis incorporated much of the Jeet Kune Do Kung Fu philosophy. Sensei's American Karate curriculum is a Mixed Martial Art that blends all arts that have influenced him to offer the very best techniques from each art.


To ensure top quality instruction, all Instructors must graduate with honors from the FFMMA Instructors classes taught in extreme conditions with rigorous cross-training. Our Instructors must constantly refine their teaching and organizational skills to make your Martial Arts training experience exciting and enjoyable.
