DBMA Kali Eskcrima

Instructor | Will Dixon

The Dog Brothers Martial Arts curriculum is a system of many styles where the ultimate goal is to "walk as a warrior for all your days™." This means that the greater mission is to have real skills throughout the entirety of one's life – not just when one is young and competitive. This calls for an open mind. Considerable thought and experience has gone into the development of this curriculum, and as is the case with all things taught in DBMA: "If you see it taught, you see it fought.™"

A) The core of the DBMA curriculum is the Filipino Martial Arts (FMA). The three principle systems upon which we draw are Inosanto Blend Kali/Silat (Guro Dan Inosanto), Pekiti Tirsia (Grand Tuhon Leo Gaje), and Lameco Eskrima (the late Punong Guro Edgar Sulite) This includes work with staff skills as well as short impact weapons.

B) Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu: BJJ plays an important role, both for our Kali Tudo™ (unarmed) system and for Stickgrappling (armed), which will be discussed next.

C) Stickgrappling: is the DBMA blend of BJJ and FMA, as well as some of stick subsystem of Bando Python from Dr. M. Gyi, Grandmaster of the Bando system. Even with a stick, grappling can happen and in this range the presence of weapons changes things in important ways. A good stickgrappler has good stick skills, good grappling, and good stickgrappling and can keep track of all three simultaneously.

D) Krabi Krabong: is the weaponry and empty hand art from which Muay Thai Kickboxing descends.

E) "Kali Tudo™": the DBMA empty handed sub-system that aims to search for the totality of the elements of ritual (MMA) and reality (Street): striking,(Kali-panuntukan, Jun Fan Gung Fu (JFGF), Krabi Krabong) trapping, (Kali, JFGF) throwing (Silat and others), grappling (principally BJJ, with some other things), and striking during grappling (Kali, Silat, JFGF).
