Kali/Escrima is one of the most complete martial arts systems in the world. It was designed for military purposes. Kali/Escrima is survival training in the truest sense because it means life-or-death. The applications for self defense are tremendous. ​

Kali/Escrima trains a practitioner in twelve areas. The objective to create a skilled fighter who is adept at almost every type of weapon. If the fighter loses his weapons, he must be able to continue the fight with bare hands and a sharp mind. There is no such thing as a Kali/Escrima practitioner without weapons. Everything around him can be converted into a weapon.

The main principle of Kali/Escrima is called "DeFanging the Snake." This means that when an enemy attacks with a weapon, the Kali/Escrima fighter will destroy weapon hand immediately. This will render the "Snake" harmless, thus "DeFanging" him. An enemy without hands, or legs, is unable to hurt you.
