American P.I.T Fighting Academy

WHO WE ARE AND WHAT WE DO


With a combined 50 plus years of training, this institution is home to the original founders of the discipline American P.I.T. Fighting (Officiated July 18, 2018 by Grandmaster Dr. Germon "Askari Mwalimu Jamala Maisha" Moriniere-Bey: Founding Elder of the Akeru Legacy Council) and Carolina Regional Directors of the World Sports Combat League and World Kickboxing League (Supported by TAFISA and NASKA). 


​American P.I.T. Fighting Academy is a one-of-a-kind institution that specializes in both the Film Industry and Martial Science. With the constant demand for authenticity and safety both on and off the set, it is imperative that people in all aspects of the film industry and regular life be conscious and ready to perform and react in the most effective and methodical manner. There are no limits to self-preservation. Co-owned by a disabled veteran, all classes are also tailored for the disabled/handicapped. This, in fact, is why we exist. We are here for any and everyone.

WHERE MARTIAL SCIENCE, SURVIVAL TRAINING, TACTICAL CINEMATIC DEVELOPMENT, AND THE FINE ARTS CAN BE FOUND UNDER ONE ROOF!
