Filipino Martial Arts (Kali) Classes in Witham


Looking for Filipino Martial Arts (Kali) Classes in the Witham, Colchester or Chelmsford area?

Kali is one of many terms used to describe the Filipino Martial Arts. The method here at the Laurence Sandum’s Black Belt Martial Arts Academy is the one that is taught by Guro Dan Inosanto and combines both weaponry and empty hand techniques. Kali is one of the most complete arts it is possible to study and encompasses all combative ranges, it therefore complements the study of JKD.

A Focus on Body Mechanics

In the modern age the study of weaponry is used to enhance the body mechanics necessary to operate effectively as an empty hand martial artist. This is achieved by the emphasis placed on the body torque needed to manipulate the various weapons used, these movements can then be translated into empty hand movements.

A Complete System of Self Defence

Kali is a complete martial arts system based on weaponry but with a superb and very effective empty hand module. The empty hand aspect of the art complements very well the trapping and limb immobilisation from the Jun Fan Wing Chun portion of the Jun Fan Martial Arts classes. Weapons taught include single stick, double stick, stick and dagger, single dagger, double dagger.
