Welcome to the Academy of Traditional Asian Fighting Arts. We have been offering instruction in Aikikai Aikido and Pentjak(Pencak) Silat Serak, in the Baltimore area, for over ten years. The dojo is located on Harford Road just north of the Taylor Avenue intersection.  Parking is available on the street or in the larger lot behind the dojo.  The Academy also works with Shingitai Jujitsu of Maryland to provide classes in Jujitsu at our location.
