    Is Kali Bullshido?

    Hey everyone!

    I just recently started looking into the Filipino Martial Art of Kali and I was just wondering what your guys's opinions were on whether Kali is bullshido or not. I have been training in BJJ and Judo for about a year and a half and compete in Judo regularly so I have a pretty good idea of what bullshido looks like but I was sure what the deal was with Kali.

    I am planning on traveling to the Philippines in about 6 months and I was thinking about training in a Filipino Martial Art. I am part Filipino on my mom's side so learning a Filipino martial art would be part for novelty and trying to get closer to my mother's culture and part so I can added something to my skill set.

    I hope this isn't a question that gets asked every five seconds but I could find another thread about it.

    Thanks a lot!

    How about if I grab a stick and attempt to beat the crap out of you and you can determine for yourself?

    If you're going to the Philippenes then you should definitely check out Filipino Martial Arts. Start by contacting people from the Pekiti Tirsia style or the Kali Ilustrisimo style (those are styles I've seen before). The only way you'll know is to see for yourself, but if you train with one of these groups I doubt you'll be disappointed.

    The area of the PI you'll be in will narrow down your choices a bit. Pekiti Tirsia Kali and Kalis Ilustrisimo are both very well regarded and solid styles.

    If you're interested in the cultural aspects, I recommend reading Filipino Martial Culture by Mark V. Wiley.
