Propagation of the Filipino Martial Arts; true to it's roots - COMBATIVE in every aspect- adapting to the ever changing challenges of being practical in today's modern world.
To have a' MK-K3' group within reach to anyone, anywhere.
What is K3 ?
'Kali Kilat Kombatives'
KALI- Adapting the accepted old name of FMA in General
KILAT- 'Kilat' is Lightning in Cebuano
KOMBATIVES- it says it all, all we do are Combat oriented 'approach to 'FMA'
No Nonsense/ No politics - personal defensive and -protection applications.
When was K3 established ?
K3 has been in exsistence since 2002.
Who is K3's Founder ?
Any Affiliations ?
YES - ' MANDIRIGMANG KALIRADMAN'
We honor our beginnings, those who have made K3 to exist because of their Instructions and encouragements-
and those are the Instructors and Grandmasters .
The MK-K3 Practitioner should grow in their own way without pressure from organizational attachments that might hinder their personal growth , MK-K3 will be their gateway to self discovery, not shackles; a doorway - not a fence.
MK-K3 is an Official LESKAS (Lema Scientific Kali Arnis System)
Study group identified directly by the late great GM Ybanez.
MK-K3 leader is the 1st student (MK001) of MK Grand Master Manolo 'Nols' Carballo Del Rosario
of Mandirigmang Kaliradman.
So with this at its center MK-K3 is honored to be a STUDY Group of MANDIRIGMANG KALIRADMAN (http://www.mkarnis.org/)
How Should FMA's be practiced ?
It should work from weapons to empty hands.
In both the combat , practice and other environments.
UNDER ANY TERRAIN AND CIRCUMSTANCE
should work in a room, plains, beach heads, rocky slopes and the dojo- with small-medium - big body structures and height should not be a factor for it's effectivity.
Sensible . Should not just work for athletes but as it was intentionally designed for the common citizen.

When I met real life Guerilla's who employed Kali as their means to retaliate against the Japanese during WW2 in the Jungles of Samar, my appreciation for the FMA's was heightened. I met 2 men who were real fighters and their stories......one of them was
A Warrior I fondly called;
Tatay Domingo .
Tatay as I fondly called him lived in my grandfather's property in Cawa Maitum Saranggani Province in the Island of Mindanao , for so many years as I can remember - a stone throw away from my ancestral home in the said locality. He has seen me grow up and brag about my Karate - until that day when I showed off my FMA ..
skills and I saw Tatay Domingo Smiling and told me -
But their stories were as real to me as to them. I have witnessed real guerilla fighters- who are not self proclaimed Grandmasters - real warriors - who used their skills and in real life against all odds.
I spent all the time I could get getting training from these men-until they could not teach me anymore.
This to me is a legacy handed down to me by these great men- heroes to me .
Not merely stories , but I witnessed their prowess inspite of their old age- a testament that REAL -
again REAL Filipino Martial Arts are for the regular citizens- these will be a lasting memory- even if no one remembers them I do and will always be thankful to these great warriors.
