The Filipino people saw Kali training as their major protection against foreign threats and the martial art of Kali was practiced in secret. Now in somewhat more peaceful times, the migration of Kali Masters immigrating to United States after World War 2 and the tireless work and research of Dan Inosanto (Bruce Lee`s best friend and student) the veil of secrecy has been lifted from Filipino Kali, revealing  this beautiful and deadly martial art for all who wish to study and learn from it.
