Mo Duk Pai students testingMo Duk Pai (“martial ethics method”) is a comprehensive martial art that emphasizes self-defense with ethical behavior. The Mo Duk Pai system was founded in 1983 by Professor Fred King. Mo Duk Pai draws from Professor King’s experiences in traditional Kung Fu, Boxing, Karate, Jiu Jitsu, Arnis and other martial disciplines.  It has evolved into the well-rounded fighting style we study at NEPMA today.

Sifu Sean Kelly teaching a special seminarPhysical. Emotional. Mental. Spiritual. Most people rely on one or two of these four human components.  They compensate, often to their own detriment, the benefit of a whole, peaceful being.  At NEPMA we develop the mind, body and the spirit.  We incorporate all of these aspects into our daily lives, creating a harmonious balance.
