Welcome

Hello,

I’m Jean Francois “Jeff” Espinous, Founder of KSE. I have been practicing Martial Arts for more than 45 years and teaching for the last 30…

I have trained in many different systems…

All of them have their own values and beliefs, which I have a great respect for…

 

With more than 30 years of training in Filipino Martial Arts, Pencak Silat & Muay Boran. I made my own training program…

It’s my way of training…

My way of teaching…

 

My personal vision…


My personal approach

In my mind, Filipino Martial Arts is not only a weapons system. It's a true Warrior Arts with all the fighting aspects. I find the FMA as one of the most organized and rational Fighting Systems. It's practical, efficient and at the same time it has given me the opportunity to create and define myself as a Martial Artist. 

 

But KSis not only FMA. It's also heavily influenced by Pencak Silat, Muay Boran and Western Boxing. Each of these Arts works together... They complete each other with their personal values...

 

I truly believe that KSE should enable my students to create on their own, to define on their own... 

Martial Arts should help us to find our ability to adapt to any given situation. Find our way to survive in any situation...

 

Kali Silat Evolution more than techniques...

It's a state of mind...
