TMA Filipino classes include Panantukan techniques, which use parries and deflections rather than traditional blocks. This stems from the theory that in defence it is more effective to minimise contact from your opponent since they may have a bladed weapon.
TMA students are better able to look after themselves in a conflict situation after following our programs. Panantukan is not seen as a sport but rather a street/jungle oriented fighting system due to the fact that the techniques have not been restricted and confined for competition rules. This is where the often used term “dirty street fighting” comes from.
The TMA Kali curriculum teaches the use of single stick, double sticks, stick and dagger and edged weapons- as well as one of the most complete and highly effective empty handed systems in martial arts. The program we follow is that developed by Guro Danny Inosanto who was originally trained by the late Bruce Lee and went on to study with over 26 Filipino masters.
Sifu Tony Child has studied and obtained qualifications under the best in Kali. Sifu Tony continues to train under Laurence Sandum of the UK MASDA organisation, who himself currently trains directly under Danny Inosanto - original student of Bruce Lee.
