Filipino Martial Arts / Weapons (Kali)

Filipino Martial Arts / Weapons (Kali)

Filipino Martial Arts (Kali) is an extremely effective and battle-tested weapons-based system. The bulk of your training in this art will be with weapons such as the stick, knife, and staff.

We also teach various empty hand systems that are taken from this dynamic and functional art. The training methods of the Filipino Martial Arts will increase your empty hand skills by supercharging such attributes as coordination, perception, and awareness. One of the main goals of training in this system is to give you the ability to pick up everyday objects and use them to your advantage, such as car keys, an umbrella, the chair you’re sitting on, or even the jacket you’re wearing. All of these are weapons in the hand of a skilled Filipino Martial Arts practitioner. There is no substitute for the confidence that comes from knowing you can handle what ever may happen.

It has been utilized in different military/government combat training camps, including Navy Seals, Marines, CIA, FBI, DEA.

It has also been widely used in many popular action movies such as:

  • The Bourne Identity, Supremacy, Ultimatum & Legacy (Matt Damon)
  • Mission Impossible 4 (Tom Cruise)
  • Resident Evil (Milla Jollovich)
  • The Book Of Eli (Denzel Washington)
  • Spartacus (Showtime Series)
  • Star Wars (Episodes I, II & III)

There is a major reason this art was used in the movies above: because it works. Not only does it look good on camera, but it’s effectivness isbattle-tested in real life situations. Books, keys, pens, and other everyday props can become very dangerous weapons in the hands of a trained Kali student.

Kali stems from the Phillipines and has many different arts/forms. Anderson’s Martial Arts teaches the Inosanto Lacoste method which is a blend of 26 different styles of Kali. Anderson’s Martial Arts is the only school in New York City that is certified to teach this method of Kali.

The method itself was created by Guru Dan Inosanto, protege & best friend of the late Bruce Lee himself as well as the choreographer of many of the above movies. Sifu Dan Anderson, head instructor of Kali classes at Anderson’s Martial Arts Academy, is certified by Guru Inosanto to teach the Inosanto Lacoste method.
