The mission of Lakas Filipino Martial Arts is to educate, preserve and honor the martial arts from the Philippines as well as those fighting systems born from the Filipino American experience. This vision of this podcast is to capture and share the stories of teachers, instructors and mentors that have not only contributed their life and spirit to martial art, but have helped paint the portrait of who I am today, and what Lakas Filipino Martial Arts continues to develop to be.

    In our method of Kali as taught by Guro Inosanto, we learn that our term comes from the words “kamut” (hand) and “lihok” (motion, or movement) and so Guro explains that our art is one of hand movements; of body motion.
