I have a new addition to Mitrevski Martial Arts,Their will be a Kali class Thursday nights from 7:30pm, It is a Filipino martial art based on sticks and dagger/knife self defence/ empty hand/ close quarter combat. It isn’t practiced widely as it’s not everyone’s cup of tea,it is not a SPORT but a SELF DEFENCE and it is an art form that you will never stop learning for the rest of your life.Filipino Martial Arts are considered the most advanced practical modern blade system in the world and are now a core component of the U.S. Army’s Modern Army Combatives program and used by the Russian Spetsnaz (special forces).
A BRIEF DESCRIPTION:
Filipino martial artists are noted for their ability to fight with weapons or empty hands interchangeably and their ability turn ordinary household items into lethal weapons. Weapons-training takes precedence because they give an edge in real fights, gears students to psychologically face armed opponents, and any object that can be picked up can be used as a weapon using FMA techniques. Empty hands training is then taught as the stick is merely an extension of the hand.
