I am Rich W. Howe, the Chief Instructor for Train Kali. I currently hold one of the few higher ranks of ‘Mandala’ under the Pekiti Tirsia Kali World Federation.


My martial arts background has spanned over 25 years with a black belt in Jeet Kune Do, Boxing, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Muay Thai, Haganah and Inosanto Kali. I have taught Law Enforcement courses to various Police Departments, SWAT Roundup, NATO: National Tactical Officers Association and OTOA: Ohio Tactical Officers Association.

I have been fortunate to develop our self-defense program to future instructors and students world-wide. I am committed to support your physical and mental growth to a level of excellence. Here, we can be vulnerable, we learn from our mistakes, but you will be pushed to be your absolute best for yourself and protecting your loved ones.

"Phenomenal instructor. He is the manifestation of Pekiti Tirsia Kali. Look beneath the surface to see his greatness. I have finally found the perfect self defense system".
