Basic Kali Tutorial : Angles of Attack ( Isla Mandirigma Kali – Kali De Leon )

In a basic Kali tutorial, the angles of attack are studied very precisely. Angles of attack are the areas of the body in which we do the basic strikes. The approach is a very simple one actually, yet it takes a lot of practice in order to get it right and become efficient.

Key Takeaways:

  • Video shows different angles of attacking with a sword and exactly where to strike on the body.
  • Angles of attack can also be translated to facial strikes with a knife.
  • There are two different types of strikes, fluid and broken. Fluid strike continue through whereas a broken strike stop at the target.

“In Kali De Leon we try to simplify most of what we do.”

He was taught if he wanted to learn how to stand up to a weapon, he should learn how to use the weapon. The ending cuts off early in suspense to keep you waiting and hopefully tuning in for a part two.
