“How can you repay someone who provides you with priceless knowledge and skills that makes you an efficient fighter?
My answer is to respect that person, train hard, stay loyal and remain humble in my approach when passing on that knowledge and staying true to its origins. Too many people want to “create” their own arts but it there is only a handful of people who can truly understand the science behind what works, My brother Mastru Antonio Faedda is that person. No Ifs No Buts.”
Harks Singh Flora – NUDDA® Leicester Head Coach
“Antonio is always searching for the best way to help his students grow, and he exhibits both love and loyalty to those he studies under and those he teaches. Never afraid to take chances in his approach, his underlying tenacity is encapsulated in his ‘No Ifs, No Buts’ philosophy. He would never put his students through any challenge that he himself has not met head on. As a student Antonio has displayed the characteristics that any teacher secretly hopes they will instill. He has never hidden his influences and always pays respects to those who have helped him; not only in his constant references to them but also by forging his own path…the ultimate compliment. All arts must be challenged if they are to grow and develop and individuals like Antonio that put this at the forefront of their practice are to be admired and listened to.
I would highly recommend him as someone who can show you both the soft and hard aspects of the arts we teach.”
Guro Terry Barnett – Antonio’s Teacher
“Master Faedda’s innovation takes the theory of limb destruction and distills it into a practicality that I can consistently and reliably use while entering and exiting various clinch positions. I have found it to be a very efficient and effective way to both, control range and close range while striking to initiate a clinch for throwing”. NUDDA® will change how the world thinks about handwork.”
““There’s training on YouTube, then there’s training in the Dojo, then there’s training with Antonio Faedda which is like normal training but being tied to a freight train at the same time. I have done a few martial arts, but this is Nitro Glycerin style…..EXPLOSIVE! I would say that this is not for pussies, but I called my cat NUDDA.””
Steven S. – NUDDA® Fanatic
“Having attended some of Antonio’s seminars in Essex and Leicester, I am particularly impressed in his eye for detail. Like any great teacher, he is able to identify subtle ways in which to transform your technique and make it more effective. What I particularly enjoy about his teaching style is his ability to develop an overall strategy.. skills not techniques… which allows you to take the thinking our of what you are doing. This really does help you to explore techniques and express yourself, first in conditioned sparring and then more free flowing sessions.
I have been impressed with what I have learned in these sessions and have been able to use them to compliment my own training. I am looking forward to attending many more NUDDA® seminars in the near future.”
