About

 
 

 

Kali Academy of Martial Arts was built on the passion and dedication of Maestro Sonny Padilla and Gran Maestro Norman Suanico. Both senior instructors have been instrumental in spearheading the wave of Filipino Martial Art (FMA) that has spread across Alberta, Saskatchewan and British Colombia since our inception nearly 20 years ago. We have maintained a loyal base of return clientele on which we have built the solid foundations of our gym and helped spread Kali Ilustrisimo across Western Canada.

Beginning in January 2017, Kali Academy will operate under new management and all efforts will be made to build upon the solid foundations set down by Maestro Padilla And GM Suanico. Our most senior student, Guro Dax Williams will be leading the effort to spread both Kali Ilustrisimo (with the continued assistance of Maestro Padilla and GM Suanico) and our contemporary, original self defense system Hive Combatives.

Our gym is located at #203- 4929 Ross (50th) Street in downtown Red Deer, Alberta in the Town Centre Mall. We are surrounded by ample parking on all sides and only a block away from city center bus terminal for your convenience. Look forward to training in a clean environment and an atmosphere that is mindful of your ability, boundaries, and personal growth.
