I am honored t be working a new project with an old Martial Arts friend of many years and actually it's about time we did.  Raffi Derderian of Johnson, R.I.(USA) has a long Martial Arts career and is a full time professional trainer .  We train mostly the same arts from varying styles as we both train Kempo, Uechi Ryu & Knife... we only vary in his study of Filipino styles and my Chinese training.  I am interested in Kali to see what additional tools it will allot my training.

"When I saw the art of Kyusho being demonstrated, the first thing I thought of was how great it would blend with Kali Empty Hands. It would take this already devastating art of nerve strikes to a new level. As martial artists, we have an obligation to be in a constant and never ending search to deepen our knowledge. The art of Kyusho is one I feel should be studied in conjunction with the empty handed method of Filipino fighting, and also its vast array of weaponry."
