Magulang Na Guro Dan Inosanto has been quoted as saying "Let the weapons teach the hand". This highly sophisticated and comprehensive martial art from the Philippines, although primarily based in weaponry, is ultimately an empty hand system. It’s empty hand systems feature some of the most sophisticated techniques and training methods in existence. Kali is an ancient word that serves as an umbrella term for all the Filipino Martial Arts. The word itself translate as the study of “Body Motion”. The Filipino Martial Arts taught at the Martial Arts Research Academy come from over 30 sources that Magulang Na Guro Dan Inosanto has spent his life training under. With influences such as the late Grandmaster John La Coste and Punong Guro Edgar G. Sulite, Magulang Na Guro Dan Inosanto has developed a program that introduces the students to 12 main areas, including, but not limited to single stick, double stick, stick & dagger, double dagger, Panantukan (Filipino Boxing) and Silat. Developed for “mass attack” as well as single opponent confrontations, the training heightens student’s awareness of their surroundings and teaches them to use their environment as tools of combat. Everyday objects, such as umbrellas, books, bandannas, etc., become an effective means of self-defence in the hands of a properly trained individual. Use of the left and right hand techniques develop coordination. Drills and techniques taught in a fluid, non-restrictive manner allow students to enhance their natural attributes and improve their sense of timing, speed, awareness, balance, agility and confidence. Weaponry training in our academy emphasize safety first. Movements are broken down into easily learned segments. You will be given the ability to perform techniques such as counters, disarms, sweeps and locks in flow. Kali is most famous for it’s flow drills that are both fun and give a real feel for the movement and speed of combat. This fun art is intellectually and physically stimulating to the martial artist at any level.
