Kali is a term for the indigenous Martial Arts of the Philippines. Kali is also known by the names of Escrima, Arnis or Arnis de Mano.

Different schools use their own terminology for their style, which varies from region to region. In the USA, for example, Kali is widely accepted as the ‘Mother Art’ (mainly due to the influence of Guro Dan Inosanto) but in the Philippines it is more usually Eskrima or Arnis that is seen as the correct name to describe Filipino Martial Arts (FMA).

We have a non-traditional stick fighting syllabus. Our stick fighting syllabus includes:

  1. Weapon strikes
  2. Open hand strikes
  3. Kicking/kneeing techniques
  4. Joint locking/Submissions
  5. Ground n pound

The FightLab Stick Fighting is a many-layered system, closely related to our MMA syllabus that covers different areas. On the one side, we have the stick-fight and the specialised theories for the Real Contact Stick Fighting. Another focal point is the empty hand fight, not only for the athletic competition but also for self-defence. In the area of self-defence, our system offers techniques and concepts that apply to armed as well as unarmed aggressors.

Our FightLab training philosophy

Jeet Kune Do Concepts is a framework that is applied by the individual to gain martial self-expression & personal growth developed by the late Bruce Lee. JKD is the search for the truth in combat. Efficiency of technique is the goal. MMA is the most efficient fighting style out there whether it is for cagefighting and for self defence and has the most cutting edge training techniques. We draw our techniques from Muay Thai, Judo, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu & Wrestling, enabling us to fight standing, in clinch & on the floor.

Every thing we train, we train with active resistance. We us a 3-stage process:

  1. Introduction: We learn the mechanics of a technique against a compliant training partner.
  2. Isolation: We drill that individual technique with active resistance from a non-compliant training partner.
  3. Integration: We integrate that technique into our combat game.
