Filipino martial art of Kali to be taught for free at City Park

Starting Oct. 8, Lakan Guru Darren Grubmaer will be teaching Pekiti Tirsia Kali (PTK) at City Park every Sunday from 2 to-3:30 p.m.

If interested, call 802-444-3522, or you can stop by and look for the person swinging sticks.

PTK is a Filipino martial art that is used by the Philippine military and is geared for self-defense. It is a very well rounded martial art, with footwork, open hand, stick, boxing, ground and physical well being, just to name a few. This art is unique in that it starts training with the stick. One uses the same technique, no matter if they are open handed or using a stick. The stick is an extension of the body. One doesn’t treat it differently when in the hand.

This art will expand awareness and create new pathways in the brain.

It is great for ages 14 and up. Students will benefit by learning control, confidence, weapon defense, ground defense and have the enjoyment of clacking sticks together. They will also benefit by constantly moving. Their joints will get the glucosamine flowing, keeping their joints healthy.
