Sinawali Basic. There are infinite ways to do Sinawali Practice. Videoed is the Universal Foundation. Some Practitioners abandon this basic nowadays and forgot how they became so proficient. Some even mock this basic. Saying that they would never use it. Every movement in Kali stems from this basic. The truth lies out of patterns. It’s hidden in plain sight. Full lesson in profile link:

Wisdom and grace from the living legend Dan Inosanto. He was Bruce Lee’s foremost student and graduate in Jeet Kune Do. In recent years his Kali and Escrima information has been often imitated and rebranded by his critics. Make no mistake, Guro Dan is the back bone of Filipino Martial Arts in this country and abroad. Without him several methods of Kali would have been lost or forgotten. He has been training in a steadfast manner since 1955, and has seen everything.

Guro Inosanto will be visiting the Portland area for a workshop on October 3rd and 4th. Over the next few days I’ll be throwing out some tributes to the 79 year old living legend, starting with this interview. Stay tuned for some real unknown gems while I hound my senior instructors for secret information.

At River City Warriors in Tigard we are proudly the only recognized school in the area teaching JKD and Kali. We fully promote and offer the Inosanto curriculum of Jeet Kune Do under our head instructor Guro Chris Clarke and the NW Kali program. This very specific curriculum is usually poorly imitated, at RCW we help people get fit, learn self defense, and gain skills that will last a lifetime. It’s more than martial arts, it’s a lifestyle. Come check out a class and start your journey in JKD today.

Round 2. Cooling down with some light Target Practice. The goal is to hit the opponent’s hand without being hit. The hand is a small moving object and is a great target for Training Accuracy.

All of my rank certificates were in a box that was damaged by water and black mold. Even the black belt certificates were damaged. Pictured is one that was still readable. It didn’t bother me one bit that these important documents are now gone. You carry all those lessons with you in your heart and soul. Not in a paper.
