Practitioners of Filipino martial arts are  noted for their ability to fight with weapons or empty hands  interchangeably. Weapons are treated as an extension of the hand, and  weapons training is considered to promote proficiency in empty-handed  techniques. The weapons vary in design, size, weight, materials and  usage.

The   great   need   for   self-preservation   was   the   genesis   of   these   systems. Throughout    the    ages,    invaders    and    evolving    local    conflict    imposed    new dynamics   for   combat.   The   Filipino   people   developed   battle   skills   as   a   direct result   of   an   appreciation   of   their   ever-changing   circumstances.   They   learned often    out    of    necessity    how    to    prioritize,    allocate    and    utilize    common resources   in   combative   situations.   Filipinos   have   been   heavily   influenced   by the   phenomenon   of   cultural   and   linguistic   mixture.   Some   of   the   specific mechanisms    responsible    for    cultural    and    martial    change    extended    from phenomena   such   as   war,   political   and   social   systems,   technology,   trade   and of course, simple practicality. Practitioners   of   Filipino   martial   arts   are      noted   for   their   ability   to   fight   with weapons   or   empty   hands      interchangeably.   Weapons   are   treated   as   an extension   of   the   hand,   and      weapons   training   is   considered   to   promote proficiency   in   empty-handed      techniques.   The   weapons   vary   in   design,   size, weight, materials and  usage. Realistic   training   scenarios   with   weapons   in   the   environments   one   might encounter   in   self   defense   situations   are   encouraged.      A   major   event   that occurred   in   the   90s   (which      went   virtually   unnoticed   by   the   civilian   martial arts   world)   was   the      integration   of   Filipino   based   martial   arts   as   part   of official   US      military   training   and   law   enforcement   training.   This   includes     corrections, probation, pre-trial services, and diplomatic protection  services. The      practice   of   Kali   teaches   us   flow   and   how   to   transition   from   weapons   to empty   hand   self   defense.   Today   you   don’t   need   to   look   very   far   to   see   the influence      of   the   Filipino   martial   arts   has   had   on   the   United   States   military.   If     you   pick   up   the   United   States   Marine   Corps   field   manual   Close   Combat     (MCRP   3-02B),   dated   February   18,   1999,   you   will   find   strikes   and   blocks     (Chapter   3   Hand-Held   weapons)   that   are   identical   to   what   you’d   find   in   a typical   kali   class.   The   manual   contains   step-by-step   moves   for   knives,      and even sticks (a section titled Combative Stick Techniques). We   offer   extensive   training   in   edged   weapons   and   stick   combat.   In   today’s society,   training   in   weapons   is   an   essential   element   in   personal   self   defense training.   Training   in   edged   weapons   and   stick   fighting   also   greatly   enhances the personal attributes needed to be a complete fighter.
