Both Sensei Gajadhar and Sensei Manganelli started to study multiple disciplines of Martial Science at a very young age. Between having backgrounds in Law Enforcement, Military, and competitive fighting, it would be destined for their paths to cross. Unbeknownst to each other, they both had the same vision of extracting valuable knowledge from learned martial science disciplines and combining it with real life experience from the military and law enforcement to create a new age applicable martial science discipline. Initially, American P.I.T. Fighting was acknowledged by Sensei Lance Adams (Head of The South Carolina Combat Arts Alliance), then Sensei Gajadhar and Sensei Manganelli combined their knowledge and vision to solidify the discipline to further be honored as its own entity on July 18, 2018 by Grandmaster Dr. Germon "Askari Mwalimu Jamala Maisha" Moriniere-Bey (Founding elder of the Akeru Legacy Council). Since 2014, American P.I.T. Fighting Academy has also been doing fight and stunt choreography for theatrical motion pictures, conducting multiple seminars, and training multiple sectors in the field of protection, safety, and education. In addition to rapid growth, both Sensei Gajadhar and Sensei Manganelli have also been inducted as life members and the Carolina Representatives of the World Sports Combat League and World Kickboxing League. It is the mission of these two veterans to continue to spread knowledge of martial science by way of establishing and maintaining the legacy of American P.I.T. Fighting for generations to come.
