About Our Arnis / Kali Classes
Our classes are unique. People of all fitness levels can take our kali / arnis class. No one has to “get in shape” before starting our class. Our instructors are highly trained and experienced and will work with you to guide you through learning techniques and ensure that you progress at your own pace. Classes help you to improve coordination, agility, mental focus, and fitness while learning skills to help you overcome potential threats. We teach the application behind every form movement, so you don’t have to wonder what form movements do.
Beginning classes teach escrima (stick), empty-hand strikes, blocks, kicks, and self-defense techniques. The skills taught help students defend themselves from real life threats. Leave the first class knowing how to escape from a wrist grab.
Adult classes are for ages 15 & up. The minimum age for the juniors class is 12.
Filipino Martial Arts
Filipino Martial Arts are called by a few different names such as Arnis, Modern Arnis, Kali, or Escrima and the art is dynamic and diverse. Each Filipino Martial Art (FMA) system may vary in the techniques it teaches. Rising Phoenix teaches a complete martial art that contains traditional weapon training (stick applications), empty hand techniques such as strikes and blocks, kicks, pressure point applications, joint locks, and takedowns as well as how to apply these skills for self defense. Edged weapon defense is also taught at higher rank levels for adult students.
