The History of Kali

Kali is the indigenous fighting art of the Philippines. With its Cultural and Philosophical values its history traces back more than 1500 to 2000 years in the past.

You might have seen Kali featured on the History Channel's hit show, "Human Weapon," or the Discovery Channel's "Fight Quest." Kali is a very complete martial art, utilizing weapons, empty hands, kicking, striking, and ground fighting.

Filipino history has seen the practice of Kali help defend against invaders. It has seen its effectiveness in fights over disagreements amongst its people. The art has even been disseminated and practiced by a variety of Special Forces units worldwide

If you want to know how to use weapons to protect yourself and devastate an opponent, Kali is a very efficient way to go.

Kali is a martial arts style that focuses on the ability to transition from fighting with weapons to empty hands fluidity, as there is always the possibility of losing or being without a weapon.

Kali practitioners believe that hand-to-hand combat moves are similar to those with weapons; thus, these skills are developed concurrently. Some of the popular combinations of weapons used are the single stick, double stick, stick and dagger. Along with this, the most frequently used training weapon is the rattan stick, a stick about the length of its wielder's arm.

Kali practitioners are known for their lightning-fast movements and efficient footwork in wielding weapons.
