DAYTON, OH – Grandmaster Manuel Taningco has launched Kali America ( as a premier global online Filipino Kali training resource. Taningco notes, “Our approach combines online training to allow people to study material at their own pace and on their own schedule. They can then receive live interaction with me through seminars or online private lessons to receive minor corrections and ask questions.”

The Kali America program already has endorsements from Filipino martial arts (FMA) and Jeet Kune Do (JKD) authority, Guro Dan Inosanto; Keeper of the Pekiti-Tirsia Kali System, Leo Gaje; former National Director for Chuck Norris’s UFAF, Danny Lane; 10th Dan Founder and Chairman of AKJU Team America, Dan Madden; and Ateru Goju Karate 10th Dan Hanshi, Kevin Cullen. “We will continue to add material to allow people to progress through the novice to intermediate to advanced and even master levels.” Online participants can get certified for each level by sending in videos of them performing the techniques.”

Kali America is the vision of Grandmaster Taningco, inspired by his family’s Filipino Kali heritage. Taningco is recognized as a 10th-degree black belt and the lineage carrier for his family’s art. Along with his family Filipino Kali heritage, the Kali America program also includes the influence that Taningco has received over his 56 years of compiled Filipino martial arts (FMA) knowledge from notable experts like Dan Inosanto (FMA/Jeet Kune Do), Leo Gaje (Pekiti Tirsia), Remy Presas (Modern Arnis), and Cocoy and Dionisio Canete (Doce Pares).

Taningco noted, “With Kali America, we make online Kali training available 24 hours a day no matter where you are. The program can be adapted to meet your personal goals and is suitable for the novice or expert.”

Taningco also encourages online participants to form their own Kali Community. “You can start a ‘Kali America Study Group’ to train with friends or to make friends to be able to share the information.” Kali America’s program is perfect for the beginner and challenging enough to complement and advance the experienced martial artist’s existing skills.

Taningco adds, “Our mission is to educate, engage, empower, and inspire each student through Kali America FMA training online.”
