PHILADELPHIA MEGA MARTIAL ARTS EXPO
The goal of PHMAS is to foster a larger Martial Arts community that supports, shares, and learns from one another. Not only will we continue to celebrate the accomplishments of our fellow martial artists at the Hall of Fame | Hall of Honor Banquet, we want to offer other attractions such as seminars and demonstrations, that will promote an exchange of techniques and ideas.
We look forward to our annual banquet every year to re-convene, catch up with old friends, and celebrate all who contribute to our Martial Arts community. Join us for our second annual Philadelphia Mega Martial Arts Expo!
We want to thank all who attended our first Expo, which occurred in 2019. This was our first attempt at making this occasion a bigger event and we really appreciate the turnout. Moving forward, we are always looking for areas to improve, to make a better experience for everyone.
