PUMA Credo

The Puma System was created in 1974 by Master Jerry E. Fisher.  It was an evolvement of a lifetime of study.  The system is a truly eclectic, typically American blending of the best and most effective parts of; American boxing, Japanese and Okinawan Karate and various Korean and Chinese systems.  The combination of these elements has resulted in the synergistic development of a uniquely American fighting art.

The initials Pacific Unified Martial Arts also represent a Native American fighting animal, the PUMA, which has come to be the emblem of the system.  The Yin and Yang in the background of this emblem signify the systems Asian roots.

It is our belief that a fighter is truly an artist in the sense that once having mastered the basics of the art, he must then peel away the old layers and at the same time seek new ideas to develop a style that is individually right for him or her.  We do not seek to stamp repetitive copies from some archaic mold, but rather to encourage individual development of personal style.

The fighting arts are completely subjective and the individual’s development must, by necessity, be the result of mastering the basics that lead to the attainment of the first degree Black Belt.

It is only at this time that one begins to travel the lonely road of personal challenge toward the always-illusive goal of perfection.
