"You will train your entire life for a 4-second stick fight." - Remy Presas
Our Kali classes are helping teens and adults in the Camden and Dover area learn and develop comprehensive self-defense strategies and skills through the use of impact weapons, blade tactics, empty hand striking and ground grappling.
Kali, sometimes referred to as Arnis and Escrima, is an important component of the the Filipino martial arts. Unlike some fighting styles, Kali covers all distances in which combat takes place: long range (kicking), middle range (boxing, elbowing, kneeing) and short range (grabbing, poking, biting, grappling).
First State Martial Arts Academy is the only school in Delaware offering Kali classes taught by an experienced instructor officially certified by the legendary Guro Dan Inosanto.
