THE BATTLEFIELD KALI MISSION STATEMENT
In the Battlefield Kali family, our mission is to help people develop as human beings through the practice of functional, sparring-based weaponry training. Over time, the individual will learn how to overcome the obstacles put up by a skilled, aggressive, fully resisting opponent. By experiencing the developmental process that takes a person from rank beginner to functional fighting expert, the Battlefield Kali exponent can take that understanding and apply it to overcoming obstacles in any field of endeavor. Success in stick, knife, and sword fighting will translate to success in the battlefield of life.
SELF CONFIDENCE. SELF IMPROVEMENT. SELF DISCIPLINE. SELF AWARENESS THROUGH FUNCTIONAL SELF DEFENSE.
Our Battlefield Kali programs can be a supplement to your current training regardless of the style you currently favor. It is comprised of three modules that you can choose from and add to your current curriculum. It does not have to replace your current curriculum.
Burton Richardson’s Battlefield Kali Programs are based on PERFORMANCE. Just as the ancient warriors who put their lives on the line on the battlefields, we are primarily interested in the developing the skill necessary to prevail as the victor in a combat situation. Battlefield Kali is beautiful because it works at full speed and full power against an opponent who is trying his or her best to beat you. Battlefield Kali is comprised of the “brilliant basics” that will give you true confidence in your self defense skills. This program was developed through countless hours of sparring over several decades, so each and every technique, tactic, and training method has been thoroughly tested under full-resistance conditions. While derived predominantly from the Filipino martial arts of Kali, Eskrima, and Arnis, elements of Jeet Kune Do, Zulu Stick fighting, Wrestling, Boxing, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Silat, and other arts are present because these additions have proven useful in fighting.
We have designed these distance learning programs so that geography is not a limitation any more and anyone willing to train can have access to the information. The entire Battlefield Kali curriculum is available on DVD and all testing will also be done via video footage.
It doesn’t matter where you live. If you want to learn, we are here to help you!
