Welcome to the Minnesota Kali Group!

Welcome New Students!

Try out any of our fantastic programs in our relaxed and welcoming facility.  You will find the Mixed Martial Arts you are looking for here (the Mix of Martial Arts that fits you).  Since our opening in 1982, we have been a “Mixed Martial Art” school. Our legacy goes back the the late Bruce Lee and Dan Inosanto as they mixed arts from many cultures to form what Bruce called ” Jeet Kune Do “.  Since then our training methods and philosophies have been guided forward by their ground breaking work.  You will enjoy the training as you meet your personal goals.

You have just found the best martial arts experience anywhere!

Highlighted classes this month:

FILIPINO BOXING  (Tuesday, Thursday at 5:00)  This art is called PANANTUKAN and is a true self defense art as well as a great workout.  You will learn skills and then hit pads.  It is primarily a boxing art so punching skills and movements are emphasized.  You will also learn takedowns, locks and breaks.  It is one of our most fun class formats.

SUBMISSION COMBINATIONS   (Wednesday 7:00)   In this class we cover the CSW curriculum in the form of combination moves for submission on the ground.  This is a great way for those new to ground work to get a feel for the art and for the advanced grapplers to add to their arsenal.  There is no live wrestling but you will get a great workout.

TRAPPING CLASS – 7:30 Thursdays
Thursday 7:30 is the new Trapping class.
This class features choice close range empty hand drills from JKD, KALI, MUAY THAI, BOXING and our own innovative MIXED MARTIAL ARTS curriculum.
What a great way to end the training day!!
Let’s hit something!!
See you here,
Rick Faye
