Greetings future KALI warriors! At Premier Filipino Martial Arts, we begin all of our students with the rattan sticks the very first lesson because Kali IS a weapons system. Very few styles or systems let students train with weapons in the beginning, most martial arts styles reserve weapons for advanced students, if they even train with weapons at all.
Combining geometry with the weapon is the foundation of what we do, an area missing in some schools teaching Filipino Martial Arts elements. Precise training of footwork, coordinating the weapon with the footwork and moving with pressure is what will train you to navigate the fight on any terrain and protect you from your opponent or attacker.
I am going to reference my teacher in the next sentence.
“Any opponent, any terrain, any condition.”- Paul Ingram, Kali Center.
That is the mindset we will be achieving though the precise development of skill.
If self defense is not your goal, KALI offers so much more! Increase your athletic performance, fitness, overall health and well being. Attribute development and personal growth, the complex patterns we train will also be increasing your coordination and mental sharpness that will overflow into your everyday life. I would love to train with you and classes are SUPER AFFORDABLE!! See you soon.
