Kali is highly developed and further extends the range and intensity of combat. As Dan himself has said, “JKD opened our eyes to Kali and Kali opened our eyes to JKD.” As a perfect vehicle with methods of development in all the critical ranges of combat, Kali can express JKD seamlessly! With Ted’s family ties to the Filipino arts and as a natural vehicle to express Jeet Kune Do, Ted naturally gravitated toward Kali. Thus Ted Lucaylucay Kali/JKD.
