Kali, an ancient Philippine martial art, which is also known by other names, such as Escrima, Arnis, Arnis de Mano, and FMA (Filipino Martial Art). By the 16th Century, Kali was a highly developed, warrior art which was used against the invading Spanish. Primarily a weapon based art, Kali is a complete defense system. Kali features numerous rapid-fire hand strikes along with kicks, knees, elbows, throws, weapons disarms, and locks. Dating back to the 1500’s, during the colonization of the Philippine Islands by the Spanish. Many believe that Kali originated from Chinese influenced Indonesian fighting tactics such as Kun Tao, and Ch’uan Fa. This art began to develop into a more martial discipline when the Spanish prohibited indigenous Filipino weapons such as the Bolo (machete), daggers and fighting sticks in the late 1600s. The Rattan stick is the most common weapon used in Kali training, Other weapons include burned and hardened stick made of hardwood, such as Kamagong. The footwork enables efficient control of ranges. The footwork is demonstrated in terms of triangles with two feet occupying two corners of a triangle and a step to the third corner. Because of its effectiveness, Kali is also taught extensively in the Army’s Special Forces & the Navy Seals. Emphasizing continuous flow and sensitivity over strength, it is a Highly functional Art. This Art is taught in real world settings without a need for uniforms. Training in the stick arts is not always what it may seem, I think many people are shocked to here that most Kali systems are meant for the use of the blade but, most use the baston to train with for safety purposes. The practitioner learned to use all the weapons that they might have to face. So while we do learn how to use edged weapons in our dojo it is also to learn how it may be used to hurt us. Fore to know the weapon, is to also know it's weaknesses. When ever possible we would like to take the weapon away from the attacker but the truth is that it is easier to avoid the cut and do your job as a striker first and then when possible disarm. This is to say that we should not just expect to simply trap his blade hand and strip it away, it takes some distraction and disabling first and alot of training... alot of training.

FBI Statistics have reported; Edged weapon attackers are responsible for 3% of all armed attacks of police. Firearm attacks account for 4% . Having this in mind... Officers shot; 10% die from their wounds. Officers stabbed; 30% die from their wounds. Edged Weapon Study; students learn short, long and medium range knife fighting. Double and single blades are employed to inflict non-lethal and sometimes lethal results on an enemy. Knife to knife fighting is emphasized, with many drills that help a student deal with a wide array of counters. Learning to use Edged weapons better enables us to defend against them. Impact Weapon Study;The single stick is emphasized and the usage of double sticks is addressed with sets for solo practice or with a training partner. This is a great way to make your hand lightning fast, fore when you drop the sticks your hands have developed and speed in the process. Empty Hand Study; Students learn to use every part of the body as a weapon to takeout an enemy. The use of the knees, shoulders, head, hands, feet, fingers are emphasized.
