At Train Kali our mission is to prevent crime and save lives by providing the people with the tools, knowledge and skills they need to protect themselves and their loved ones.

When reality strikes with a potential crime against you and your family, we want to instill confidence and to encourage every individual to be their own first responder in time of crisis.

With the popularity of MMA and other types of competition focused training, Train Kali was created to fill the void in the self-protection industry and to fulfill the need for those individuals looking for self-protection education and training.

At Train Kali, we follow the traditional training methodology under the guidance of the Pekiti Tirsia Kali World Federation from the Tortal family. This Filipino training method incorporates its culture, tradition, philosophy, and history, and weaves it into combative training.

Knowledge of the complete system includes edged and impacted weapons, improvised flexible weapons and empty hands, in coordination with advanced footwork. The Pekiti Tirsia Kali (PTK) culture is very blade centric which separates us from other traditional martial arts.

One of the most basic principles at Train Kali is the learning how to use weapons and the learning of empty-hand techniques. These are taught to be used interchangeably, and with equal proficiency, our students learn to pick-up any object and use it as an improvised weapon.

Train Kali’s purpose is to provide civilians with the expert knowledge of protecting themselves with education and techniques to survive and prosper by minimizing injury or damage.
