Who Made The Grandmaster

Baba Taji Nanji is one of the pre-eminent rising stars in the

world of martial arts today.

    A world class practitioner and instructor with over 45 years of experience, has trained and studied under such luminaries as Sensei Richard Gorrell, Jr. , Grandmaster James Fain, Oso Tayari Casel, Dr. Maung Gyi, Sifu/ Guro Ron Balicki, Dr. Moses Powell, and Sifu/Guro Dan Inosanto among others, and holds instructor ranking in several martial arts disciplines.


Baba Taji is now promoting and sharing his own personal martial arts, self defense, and fitness system called the NMAFI Blend System to the world. Conceived in June 2003, this unique concept was created to honor all of his instructors and to highlight the principles of Ancient Afrikan Science inherent in health and wellness, martial arts, and combat sciences.


    In addition, he has recently released a DVD on NMAFI Personal Protection along with CDs entitled, The Way of the NMAFI Warrior and NMAFI Personal Protection for Women. He will soon be releasing the first volume of a seven volume book series entitled, The Secret Revealed: An Introduction to the Afrikan Origins/Influences of the Martial Arts Worldwide, in order to present a comparative analysis of Afrika’s powerful, yet widely overlooked contribution to the world of martial arts from ancient times up to the present.
