    Here in my province in philippines, there's a lot of martial artist we know most of them already gone but they never thought filipino martial arts to other people, they are very careful in choosing people they wanna teach. The person must be disciplined and have a good heart. Because they said it is deadly and dangerous to learn of irresponsible person. They hide it, that is why i switch to tae kwon do. And luckily we have a few self defense lesson not knowing that our instructor already teaching us a filipino martial art.

    sad to say…. a lot of western people are familiar with FMA while a lot Filipinos are not familiar with our own Martial art…. i think our country needs to pay attention about this so that we can preserve our own culture…

    they said kali is dead in philippines because only few people knew this martial art and its not being teach in philippines even in gyms well they are wrong the reason why they dont teach kali and other FMA in philippines because its just very deadly and dangerous but very effective in both offense and defense thats why only those who are in special forces are allowed to train FMA but the sad truth is that only few filipinos knows their own martial art because they prefer TKD,KARATE,etc and they dont even have idea how rich their culture that they have their own martial art,most gyms in philippines are teaching tkd,karate kung fu you cant find a gym that teaches kali you need to go in some remote areas in philippines just to find a master,they dont know how special their martial art that it is being use to train special forces in other countries but kali is never dead in philippines its just its not being teach because they prefer westernized teaching for example in school they teach football which is not their own instead of kali which is part of their tradition that almost forgotten

    Bruce Lee an this man were best friends. Bruce Lee trained him in ways but JKD weapons tactics stem strongly towards Kali. if Bruce Lee thought this man was good enough to teach him I'd say he is good enough to teach anyone. kali has my upmost respect.

    The idea of studying an art is to be able to absorb what is useful to one's needs and one's individuality and still be able to to respect all forms art (fight styles).
    As human beings the moment we stop learning is when we die.
    RESPECT AND MAYBE THEM WE CAN START THE LEARNING PROCESS.

    If you are not planning to join the military or the police force better not learn this martial arts because this is not a defensive martial arts. Its purely for martial arts for killing people. The basic principle of this martial art is kill or be killed.

    HUNT KING DO is more simpler then jkd. by the way dan not a good idea to teach stepping close rang knife techniques especially while standing still. knife techniques should be taught while the partner closes in do your part and quickly move away from his the knife. 10/12/2014

    Bootlickers. I would have to test out a guro to see if he is worth my time as an aprentice. Full contact 3 minute spar, possibly followed by 5 minutes 3/4 speed full weight blows and 3/4 pressure locks. I will know in one minute who is more skilled. He has much experience in a couple of modernized arts. I'm all budo, military drill and traditional combat trained, 46 schools. Since i could Crawl startling with traditional western boxing/ no rules defence. Karate/ kimpo/ jujutsu/muay thai/dim mak/aikido/judo/ gongfu-sifuwong-chigong-taichi chin-na/animal forms and 8ways moving/ white eyebrow/ tibetan lion/ white crane deadly yang form/ secret venom family heir animal forms(6forms)/ ninpo/ budo taijutsu/ family heir restricted budo/ yagyu/ niten ichi/ aiki-jutsu kiaijutsu (7schools)/ goya ryu shadow boxing/ viking beserikir/ anatomica romana/ fencing 8 forms 4 def-4offensive/ pieced together vajramukti from shaolin north form diamond fist and kulari payut/ japanese pirate martial art otako ryu resurrected from octopus themed techniques in various 500+ year old ryuha both samurai-honin-shinobi in origin. I have absorbed entirely these arts and have not wasted my time adhering to philosophy of non-deadly arts that profess to make warriors. One question. Can I kill at least 10 attackers with this art? If no I die. Fuck bullshiddo! I will kill anyone at anytime i find approvable with my skill alone. Your philosophy will get you X'd and so will an overeager student with no formal training. Weak. If you are injured can you still fight? I can, have and will. I have used my teeth to bleed out a stronger attacker. This is necessary. You will not outlast me. Your students are but wallet padding and fodder. I would tear them apart in front of you and unbuild your egos temple. I am a force of nature; chaos incorruptible/ death incarnate. So, can you teach me anything?
