Kali is an ancient Philippine martial art, spawned before the arrival of the Chinese of the T'ang dynasty in the 9th century, before the Arab wave of the 15th century, Kali was flourishing at the arrival of the Spanish conquistadors in the 16th century. Kali is a complete self-defence system employing empty hand techniques and the use of various swords, sticks, clubs, staves, lances, daggers, long knives, and projectile weapons.

Aikibudo is een Japanse krijgskunst verwant aan het meer bekendere Aikido. De technieken de we bestuderen omvatten een grote verscheidenheid aan verdedigingstechnieken tegen zowel gewapende als ongewapende aanvallen. Een belangrijk stuk van de cursus is gericht op het programma Aikibudo dat, via kata en dynamische oefening, een gamma van traditionele verdedigingstechnieken aanleert. Kanaliseren van aanvallen, evenwichtsverstoringen, werptechnieken, klemmen en eindcontrole worden geoefend. Op regelmatige basis echter, spitsen we de les toe op het aspect zelfverdediging, waarbij we in vrijere vorm verkennen hoe de technieken ons van dienst kunnen zijn bij realistische confrontaties. Tot slot biedt Aikibudo Leuven in zijn lessenpakket ook cross-training binnen DEFCROSS aan. Contacteer de lesgever voor meer info. Surf ook eens naar onze site:

The art is dynamic and we practice balance breaks, throws, pins and joint locks through kata as well as free forms.
