FILIPINO MARTIAL ART
KALI WEAPONRY - BLADES, STICKS, & FLEXIBLE WEAPONS
Filipino Weaponry is practiced under many different banners: Kali, Arnis, and Eskrima, to name a few. While all are very related, some argue that Kali emphasizes training to implement bladed weapons, while the others emphasize impact weapons (sticks, etc.). At MKG Detroit, we approach our Filipino Weaponry training in a way that aims to install in you core methods of dynamic locomotion that will translate into all manner of weaponry and empty-hand technique application. You will learn to use safe training equipment to develop your proficiency with knives, impact weapons, flexible weapons (scarves, fabrics, etc.), and weapons of opportunity. This class is always fun and functional, and serves to move your body in new and exciting ways, while improving both cognitive function and present mindfulness. Safe and exciting training drills replicate components of combat in an effort to help you achieve the "flow state", resulting in a program that promotes practical self protection as well as powerful mind-body integration.
