Two Shows at Martial Arts History Museum
2 pm and 4 pm (TWO SHOWINGS)
KALI MEANS TO SCRAPE – Kali Means to Scrape is the first documentary of its kind to uncover what eskrima is today- its roots, and effect on Philippine and American cultures. Written by Ron Gabriel and Nick Papadakis, and filmed on location in remote areas of the Philippines, this is as real as it gets. Watch as you are taken through the jungles and villages of the Philippines under heavy guarded protection to speak with various natives on what Kali is, and how their lives and culture depend on it. See how the real stick fighters train, live, and survive by eskrima. Discover the strength, the brutality, and humanity of men who fight with blades. Finally, a documentary that does justice to the art and its people. No matter what your skill level, or style, you will find this as captivating as its people.
4 pm to 5:30 pm
ACTUAL KALI IN ACTION – Felix Roiles, a highly skilled practitioner of the Filipino art of Kali, takes you through the history of Kali and puts it into action. You’ve seen the documentary, now see it in real action. See what men do with knives and sticks in this amazing and brutal performance.
