Pretty often I get asked in one wayor another "Can someone really learn Kali online?"
Of course there are those who will always believe people can't but, to me that is a limited belief especially with today's technology. I think it also has a lot to do with who's teaching the online material. Just because someone trains with a teacher in person doesn't guarantee good skill development. Even if that person trains with the largest name in the style.
Learning martial arts is a two way street. You have information going out (teacher), information coming in (student) and then what the student chooses to do with the information.
I get asked so much, "How can I get really good at Kali (or any martial arts) faster?" or the classic, "How long will it take me to get really good at Kali?"
Let's shine some light and wisdom on these types of questions.
First, If you're thinking about how fast you can be accomplished in Kali you're already looking for the end so the real answer is you won't get as good as you wish you will. It's this simple.
I've been training Kali for 17 years this summer and that is nothing compared to the greats who were fortunate with time to start before me but no matter when you start the journey isn't about the end. If you're thinking about the end of the journey before you even got started or past the introduction period (1 year is the introduction period), then you're already at the end of your rope.
I often get the question "How do I get my Kali Flow smoother?"
It's really a combination of a few of things. Some of these points you might have already thought of and some you might not have so I want to bring this out to the spotlight.
