About Us

The Tamerrian Institute is dedicated to the preservation and dissemination of traditional African Martial Arts for the benefit of all who would like to learn them. 

We believe that African Martial Arts should be an essential part of the African American scene and general Martial Arts population scene, and we are committed to making them so.

We offer martial art classes that are open to all students, regardless of gender or ethnicity. Our instructors have been trained in traditional methods and will teach you everything from basic self-defense techniques to beginners through advanced forms of ancient and contemporary fighting sciences.
