About KSE

KSE is a modern synthesis of several traditional Filipino Martial Arts and South East Asian Martial Arts. The training concepts of KSE are composed of several sub-systems. These sub-systems are Panantukan (Filipino Boxing), Sikaran (Filipino Kicking), Sinawali (Double Sticks), Solo Baston (Single Stick), Daga (Knife Fighting), Espada Y Daga (Sword and Dagger), Kadena De Mano (Filipino Trapping) and Dumog (Filipino Grappling) and Pencak Silat Concept. In addition KSE is heavily influenced by the Arts of Bando, Krabi Krabong, Muay Boran and Western Boxing Concept

KSE Urban Self Defence:
Bouncer experience along with common sense…

In KSE these concepts are woven together into a complete and very effective fighting system. Any improvement in one aspect of the Art will lead to an immediate progression in the others.
In a combination of empty hands training and weapons training, the practitioner will develop speed, coordination, stamina, strength and reflexes that support self defence and fighting skills.

The KSE Training Program is not set…
It’s built up to be improved…
To give you a lead…
To open a path to your own expression…
To see beyond the basics…
It’s to pass beyond the traditional expression…
To see what you may already know with new eyes…
