Kali is a weapons based system from the Philippines.
One of the training methods that makes it different from other Arts is that you start with a weapon
from the beginning. Many other Arts do not teach weaponry till later into the training.
The most common training tool (weapon) is the Rattan Stick. It comes in a variety of lengths, but
28” inches is common. Other aspects of the art include Edged Weapons ( Swords, Knives & Spears).
There are also Flexible Weapons. Empty Hands (Boxing, Kicking, Trapping, Grappling) are also apart
of the Systems.
