The end of the year approaches ever so close and the rise of a new decade is sharp on the horizon.
2020 will bring new beginnings at Kali Center as we thrust into the new year and the new decade with new training programs and a ton more to offer our students, fans and followers. Some big upgrades are on the way...
At the start of 2020 I'll begin building the all new Kali Center Training Compound. My new place will allow me to film new training videos for YouTube and our programs any day at anytime! I'll also be hosting a specialized training camps a few times per year. My goal for 2020 is to display and lead exactly how you can train everyday and how even solo training can still build a tremendous amount of skill when done the right ways.
In 2020, I'll be launching my all new "Solo Training Guide" where I'll be teaching my top solo training and practice methods for skill continuance along with workouts to build athleticism and high performance.
Also, in the new year I'll be starting to build the next level of the Inner Triangle curriculum which will be moving forward into a completely new area of blade fighting and martial arts performance. We are now nearly finished building out the Minor Level curriculum in the Inner Triangle and are ready to presume the next level of materials.
So many people have been asking about seeing our sparring but, I didn't want to put it out there for people to watch and not actually know what they're looking at. I'll be adding new areas of our YouTube channel for our top supporters where I'll be including sparring, exclusive drills and training and more videos plus other perks!
ITC 2020, I'm already starting to prepare myself for next summer's Immersion Training Camp. This year's camp I'll be teaching some drills and methods out of the next level materials which i've never taught publicly before outside of a few of the classes I've taught in Chicago. ITC 2020 is the Kali event of the year you will not want to miss if requiring the highest performance training and skill is your goal. AS those who have already attended an ITC or other seminar/class know that what we do in person and how we perform in person is very different than what we put out on our generic YouTube videos. ITC is a great challenge of learning, training, performance and endurance.
For those interested, 2020 is also the start of an entire new project I'm doing which is the 'Paul Ingram Saga" or my untold saga. Basically one of my personal focuses for 2020 is to work on expanding my own creativity within and outside my martial arts. On my new YouTube channel I'm uploading new Vlog videos and I'll be doing other creative work videos that are all covering topics like my new home and training compound, gardening my own food, house and land projects, homesteading, archery, hiking adventures, travels, learning new skills and creating off of the inspirations I find.
One of the things I want to do is document more of my life and create more adventure. The martial arts has been my primary focus in my life for the last 20 years and I want to break off and develop in other areas I've been wanting to explore for many many years. Maybe, my new channel and videos will help inspire others to do new things, try things they've always wanted to do, give new ideas or at the very least provide some fun and interesting entertainment while putting some smiles on peoples faces.
Basically, I want to create and share more positivity in my world to other's.
You can check out my new channel which already has some new videos on it right here.
2020, isn't just a new year, it's the beginning of a new era. I say, let's take advantage of the future given and make it a wonderful experience and share as much as we can together and shine more positivity on our world that has seen so much negative over the past years.
Happy New Year, Happy New Era and let's make it incredible!
One of the most frequent questions I get asked is, what exactly is Kali Center's Kali?
Is it Pekiti-Tirsia, is it a blend of two or three different styles and if so which ones?
The answer is here...
The style of Kali we train, study and practice at Kali Center is simply called, "KALI." I'm not interested in getting too caught up in a name.
Over the last twenty years of training and research in different FMA styles, systems and instructors I've come to see and believe that KALI is an in depth expression of the secret universal laws and variables, mathematics and physics.
I've been getting a lot of questions regarding the Kali Center Inner Triangle. Like what exactly is included in the membership? How is this different from anything else out there in the world of Filipino Martial Arts?
Some of you have been a bit "sticker shocked" but...
Well, let me tell you everything you'll be getting!
The Inner Triangle membership is loaded with training and I'm giving A LOT!
What's happening at Kali Center beginning January 2019? I'm getting a lot of questions about where all the training is going and here I'm going to answer everything.
2019 is the start of a new era for Kali Center. The team and I have put a lot of thought into the direction I want to take Kali Center (which we are calling the "Kali Center Evolution"). The new year will bring many new great experiences to our students all over the world.
In 2019 a lot of changes for the better are occurring. We are yet again raising the bar and changing the standard of Kali training and the teaching of martial arts. There's NO holding back.
Let's begin where most find Kali Center, YouTube, and I'll build progression from there...
New video format coming to YouTube in 2019. I'll still be uploading instructional and motivational videos along with new videos we are calling the TEST series, Weapon and Training Gear Reviews, and more Team Vlogs with behind the scenes footage. We want to give you the BEST Kali experience on YouTube.
TEST Series: We're going to be putting everything to the test from weapons, to techniques. No more guessing what works and what doesn't.
REVIEW Series: I'll be personally reviewing knives, bolos, and training gear and giving you my personal opinion on everything. Let me know if there is something specific you'd like for me to review.
TEAM VLOGS Series: Get to know the KC Team at a more personal level. Travel with us to classes, seminars, staff retreats and more with behind the scenes you never get to see normally.

In my experience Deep Blue is way better and more effective than tiger balm. It not only provides soothing benefits for sore, aching muscles and strains it also contains healing properties that get deep into the source of the problem.
This stuff really does cut down my healing and recovery time literally in half!
If you're looking for a new muscle and tendon soreness relief solution then give Deep Blue a try.
It's Kali Center approved!

What a great meet up we had this year. We had attendees from all over come and train with the Kali Center team. It was a great opportunity to meet our online students, friends and fans!
What did we cover at the Meet Up? A LOT!
We worked single stick drills, double stick drills, Kali flow drills, disarms, footwork, empty hands technics and tactical applications, close quarter knife drills, techniques and applications and got lots of flow training time in.
We had attendees of all levels from advanced to never before done a single day of Kali. Everyone left the meet up with new knowledge, new skills and a big smile which means the KC Team did a job well done.
Each year I take the Kali Center staff on a nature retreat for adventure and training. This year we voyaged off to the Badlands of South Dakota. It's a beautiful and tough terrain. A desert in the middle of rich grasslands.
I use these retreats for a couple of reasons.
1. Because my team deserves them and is a great way for us to strengthen our bond further
2. To reflect on the past year's events and to clear our minds and get ready to tackle the next extension of the Kali
3. and of course to explore and train developing our own skills further.
Here is a short highlights video of some of the hiking and training from the trip I'm sure you'll enjoy...
A couple weeks ago the Kali Center team and I were invited to perform Kali at the Daley Center in Chicago for the 15th Asian American Festival. I want to thank Rose Tibayan for coordinating our performance and the rest of the coordinators and team for putting on this super awesome fest!
After the demo we were invited to the VIP after party where even more performances took place. It was great meeting so many people and making many new friends and we look forward to performing our Kali at the next event!
Check out the video we got of the demo! Watch Here
We want to spread the Kali word out and we need your help to do this. Here's what Kali Center needs from you...
