PMA’s FILIPINO KALI curriculum includes the use of weapons. Through learning these weapons, the training can also translate into a system of explosive and effective empty hand skills. Besides excelling as a realistic self-defense system, the Filipino Martial Arts will help the student develop attributes such as speed, agility, timing, body mechanics, and neuromuscular coordination.
Our Program consists of the INOSANTO/LACOSTE METHOD and SAYOC KALI
At PMA, we offer Inosanto Kali, as taught to us by Guro Dan Inosanto. This is a system he developed based on his many years of study with over 26 different Filipino masters.
Within Inosanto Kali exist drills, strategies, and techniques that allow the martial artist to become proficient in many areas. Students learn the use of single stick, double sticks, stick and dagger, and edged weapons as well as one of the most complete empty-hand systems in martial arts.
As seen in THE HUNTED®, the Sayoc Kali system is a very unique and dynamic method that develops a high level of skill in the application of edged weapons. It is a family system spanning five generations which is currently propagated by Tuhon Christopher Sayoc, Sr.
Sayoc Kali training includes extensive drills, vital templates, transition exercises, projectile weapons, and the use of whips. This detailed, in-depth system takes training to an extremely high level of reflex, response, and mindset.
