Your questions answered!
I'm a beginner, is that OK? Yes! All skill levels are welcome to all classes, the techniques and drills are adjusted to your current skill level, and with just enough challenge so you improve every time! Everyone starts at the beginning, and everyone who is no longer a beginner remembers what it is like! We will look after you.
Do I have to be fit to start with? No, all fitness levels are welcome! You will become stronger and fitter during your training!
I don't want to get hit, is it dangerous? Safety is paramount to us. We use protective equipment and training methods that minimize the risk of injury, however, effective martial art training does involve a small element of risk, but it is all part of the process of learning how to defend yourself and move more effectively in a physical environment. Don't worry though, you won't have to spar with a black belt on your first day!
I don't have any training equipment or safety gear, can I still join in? Yes! Equipment and safety gear are provided for you to use during your free trial period. After that, most students like to purchase their own gear, we have some for sale or can point you to alternative retailers.
Is there a syllabus? Do you do gradings? Double yes! We teach from the Kali Sikaran International syllabus which has 5 student phases and 5 teacher ('guro') phases. Gradings are available when you are ready, contact us or speak to us at a class for more details.

All you need to meet your martial art goals
when, where, how much, what to bring, what to expect
Kali Sikaran Bath, part of Kali Sikaran International, teaches a programme which integrates our values of lifelong learning, fighting spirit and realism.
Training covers armed and unarmed conflicts, with single or multiple opponents. Pre-emptive avoidance and verbal skills are also emphasised, with physical techniques practiced in traditional, sport and scenario environments.
Training involves weapons (sticks, knives, swords, sarong/clothing, newspaper, pens, the environment around you) and unarmed (boxing, kickboxing, trapping, close quarters combat, grappling) concepts and techniques. Drills are mostly done with a partner, often starting with a set sequence and building gradually towards more random and less predictable moves as your reactions, distancing and timing improves.
