WELCOME TO LIGHTHAVEN GOA, INDIA
We wanted to do something for the Pekiti and FMA community around the world during this difficult time. To this aim we are releasing over an hour's worth of Kali solo drills that you can practice from your home without the need of a partner. The videos are absolutely free and will be put on our YouTube channel as a playlist in the order we think you should train them in. It's a really hard time right now for all of humanity. We are hoping we can at least help some people train while they are in isolation. The instructional will cover footwork drills, diagonal lines, vertical lines, the dirty dozen, an introduction to the Sinawali, a basic breakdown of how to start working on your free flow or Carenza and Pekiti specific strength drills. There are countless ways to train on your own. We picked the drills that have worked best for us and our students. But there are still many drills that we had to leave out of this instructional series. Hopefully we can cover them in a future series. Hope everyone is keeping well whenever they are in the world and we are looking forward to sharing our knowledge with you.
