Paradise Valley Karate provides martial arts classes to North Phoenix, Paradise Valley, North Scottsdale, Desert Ridge & Moon Valley communities

Kali is actually known as Pekiti Tirsia Kali and it is from the Philippines.  It is an indigenous art that was originally passed down through family members.  There are almost 8,000 islands in the Philippines and so there are many variations of the art. It was traditionally taught as a ‘backyard art’.  It was taught in small groups in a very casual atmosphere like a back yard.  

Kali is well known for its strength in weapon training, but includes empty hand training too. 

Kali is also referred to as Arnis & Escrima.  There are many other styles as well, such as Balintawak, Doces Pares, Inosanto, Lameco and more.

The same principles are taught in both classes, except that we do not teach blade to the kids. 

When kids are old enough to train the blade it’s a super simple transition.  The way they use the stick will be the same way they would use the blade.

This makes it so easy for everyone!  Instead of learning a different technique fore empty hand, stick and knife.  They all move the same and reinforce each other!

Definitely not!  You will get fit, you will burn off unwanted calories, you will find it an awesome stress relief.  But BORING, it is NOT!

The variety, challenge and the feeling of accomplishment when you master a self defense skill or technique is why students love our North Phoenix adult martial arts classes at Paradise Valley Karate.

But we find it’s the friendships and fun that keep students coming back.  It’s like their second family.  Why not find out for yourself.  Book in for our limited time offer on this page!

Not at all.  In fact, many students starting in our adult martial arts classes would describe themselves like that before they started.  So you will fit right in!

Give yourself some time, and you will be astounded at how much you improve!  You’ll find that our very experienced martial arts Instructors, are trained to keep their teaching simple.  So even the most uncoordinated person will develop ‘ninja-like’ skills!  Come see for yourself!
