DFA Kali Bundle - Levels 1, 2 and 3

The Filipino martial arts are known by the names Kali, Escrima and Arnis. Most people think of it as "That Stick Fighting Art" , but it is much more. The Filipino martial arts are a complete system encompassing hands, feet, weapons and joint locking. Many police and military around the world are now learning these arts are due to the effectiveness of the techniques.

Personal instruction is the best way to train, but our methods and instructional videos allow students not living near one of our schools to progress from beginner to Instructor (black sash) at their own pace. Sifu/Guro David clearly and concisely explains the proper warm-ups, techniques, forms, and theory.

Each Course level of mastery is demonstrated in easy to digest lessons by Guro David and his students.

We recommend that you take this course with a friend if possible (but not necessary). It helps to have a workout buddy to practice techniques on, spar with, and share ideas. It’s also more economical because you can share the cost of the video courses.

DFA Kali students will only be tested at Basic Instructor level and above, but they should stay in touch by sending periodic videos, (To make sure that they are making sufficient progress). You decide when you are ready for Instructor level testing.

However, you need to spend at least three months in between levels before moving on to the next level. These techniques, theories and ideas need to become ingrained in you and become part of your ‘muscle memory’. It is not enough to simply memorize the drills and techniques.
