The Ancient art of Kali (Arnis De Mano) is a fast and furious system of self-defense using weapons of single and double sticks, swords and daggers. This art combines graceful flowing movements with balance, timing and coordination to form a very effective fighting art. This easy to learn art gives you instant martial arts skills that can be applied using any object 6 or longer.  A tree limb in the street, a sturdy umbrella, a rolled up magazine, a car antenna, or a pair of boots could all be used as self-defense weapons in the hands of an Arnis De Mano player.
