About Fera Academy
Fera Academy opened in September of 2020 during the COVID-19 Pandemic by Master Victor L. Almeida / Vito to create an outdoor safe training space for martial artists and eventually the addition of fine arts.
In December 0f 2021, Master Victor and Caroline start their journey by taking Fera Academy on the road! With the addition of a Mobile Glassblowing Studios hot shop, a fully off grid headquarters (HQ), and our mobile dojang, we will be bringing to you video lessons, demonstrations, and some good entertainment while visiting beautiful landscapes throughout the USA. You’ll be able to follow this content on YouTube by clicking here and on Instagram by clicking here.
Through learning martial arts, we push ourselves to new heights and limits. The training we do here is meant to instill mental fortitude, physical strength, coordination, strong self defense skills, and self control. We currently train in various disciplines including Taekwondo, Muay Thai, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, and Haedong Kumdo. Our dojang is completely mobile which allows us to travel while being able to train our various disciplines. Implementing our training into everyday life has become a corner stone of out lifestyle. In our videos, we will be going over how important it is to create foundational elements to improve your quality of life.
Through fine arts we can learn expression and understanding. The making process can be challenging, but once you understand yourself and your medium, it becomes a tool of expression. To exist in that moment of making is to perform a meditative act that brings you one with the very form you mold. This meditative process further enhances the awareness of self which leads to even more growth. Freedom in these expressions is what allows for growth in art and oneself. It is within our own abilities to then use these tools to channel our existence.
