Talofa lava, my name is Falaniko Penesa, born and raised in the beautiful island of Samoa. I am from the village of Puipaa and Aele Fou and am the proud owner and founder of Tama Toa O Le Afi! 

Tama Toa O Le Afi is my online store where we provide an opportunity for dancers to purchase FireKnifes and FireKife supplies. Most of my life has been all about the art of fireknife. I started learning from the age of 10. I love my culture and the many years I put into this craft.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I am so grateful for my family for teaching me the history and art and I am proud of myself for never giving up on my passions. My goal and hope for the young warriors is for them to not give up on their dreams, keep our culture alive, share our traditional ways of respect through Fireknife and to put all faith and love into God. FireKife has given me the opportunity to travel around the world and create a rewarding career as a FireKnife warrior. My talents have helped me to experience and meet new people and share the stage with brothers and sisters around world. 🌎

Jako and I have grown up together in Samoa. I am honored to be part Tupu Le Afi's journey and I am now their direct FireKnife supplier.
