RAPIDO REALISMO KALI
Realismo Kali ( RRK ) is a Filipino fighting system officially christened on
April 1997 by Grandmaster Henry Espera. It is a Filipino self defense system
with traditional roots adapted for modern times. The name of the system is a
combination of two Filipino adapted words from the Spanish language: Rapido
which means fast; and Realismo which refers to concern for fact or reality;
or the rejection of the impractical. Rapido Realismo Kali is an art designed
to utilize the human body's natural reaction to aggression as starting point
for self defense techniques.
Realismo Kali is a comprehensive blade-oriented combative art consisting of
RRK Weapons System which deals with the use of, and defense against,
Sabakan, which is the official Rapido Realismo Kali
Unarmed Combat System. RRK strongly advocates the use of lethal,
efficient, and street effective techniques in combat, preserving the way how
our ancestors originally practiced Kali - as a way to defend themselves and
their loved ones.
street defense realist, Punong Guro Henry Espera developed this Filipino
fighting system with techniques for self-preservation in mind - as far
removed from modern sport-oriented martial arts as possible. Do not expect
flashy moves here - Rapido Realismo Kali is about survival. We train our
students to nullify opponents fast and hard, to take the assailant down
efficiently - using techniques that expend the least amount of energy -
because chances are, he's not alone - and you'll still have to deal with his
Guro Espera strongly believes in one-on-one training. This has been done by
the great masters of old to impart knowledge and skills to their students.
This way, each student is properly guided and supervised as he trains. This
method of teaching ensures that the smallest of nuances in the techniques
are properly inculcated. Every student training in RRK gets the same initial
lessons but is encouraged to add his own "flavor" once he gets the basic
techniques down. Each student is free to explore, add his own techniques as
he sees fit, and develop his own personal fighting style in accordance with
Rapido Realismo Kali's general principles.
