Martial Arts for Education
For over 25 years, Martial Arts for Education (MAFED) has been teaching children, teenagers and adults the Japanese martial art of Budo Taijitsu, along with the self-defense skills of the Ninja and Samurai. Led by Sensei Robert, we are a non-profit organization which focuses on teaching children self-esteem, focus and concentration, self-discipline, cooperation, physical fitness and leadership skills. We are in the middle of moving to a new Dojo and classes are temporarily located at Rio Vista Park. While we are based in Rio Rancho, we welcome students of all ages from across the greater Albuquerque Area. Stop by and try a class for free!  
We’ve moved!

We are currently offering classes for kids of all ages at the Mac Center (next to Loma Colorado Library) and at AnchorPoint Church (Annex). Beginning level classes are offered on Tuesdays at 5:00PM and on Saturdays at 10:00AM.
