KSM is our Eastern Asian (the Filipino and India based) Martial Arts program that includes Kali (Inosanto Method, Pekit Tirsia Kali, Kalis Ilustrisimo, Jendo Arnis), Dynamic Fighting Arts (Dekiti Tirsia Kali, Balintiwak, Dumog, Panantukan, Kuntao, Silat), and Panantukan (also called Dirty Boxing), to teach us weapons based combat and defense that relies heavily on stick and knife combat as foundation but does move into empty hand standing and grappling with weapons in contested and non-contested skills development training. This is a self defense oriented combat approach that starts off training with weapons: sticks and knives and then moves into empty hand and grappling, includes stick fighting (sparring) and stick grappling, as well as knives sparring – stand up and ground. We also cover other various weapons – fixed, flexible and throwing.
