Kali – Filipino Martial Arts
Kali is an extremely practical martial art that originated in the Philippines . It utilizes weapons of all different lengths and sizes, which include bladed and blunt weapons and includes empty hands training that use feet, hands, knees, elbows, throws, grappling, joint locking, pressure points, and in many other weapons.
Kali is one of the few martial arts that actually starts training with weapons first and then makes the transition to empty hands training. It is highly effective, versatile, and practical.
Students will learn how to use weapons and defend against them. After that, the other areas of the system will be learned to prepare students against any attacker regardless of size and weapons.
The Bihonte Academy teaches a total of 26 different Filipino systems that include Kali, Escrima and Arnis. These 26 different Filipino systems combine to form what is taught as the ShihKeaFma system of Filipino martial arts.
The Bihonte Martial Arts group has won the National and World Full contact stick fighting championships in 1989 that competed in California and the Philippines under the NARAPHILL organizations and WEKAF respectively.
