BAIS TRES MANOS SYSTEM
KALIS-SILAT is a treasured knowledge of Filipino martial artists, cultivated from a number of years in training and discipline. During the early civilization these types of Martial Arts were developed by practitioners for survival, defense and protection of their families and territorial land against intruders.
The Bais family adopted the three principle martial arts objectives of native Filipinos. The family also improved and developed unique self-defense movements that are applicable in sport martial arts and actual combat. They were designed for application by either gender. The objectives are to promote camaraderie, health and personal self defense which have to be applied only in unavoidable circumstances.
The first training starts with bladed and non-bladed weaponry. Continued practice develops the body instinct's and raises awareness of the true danger of weaponry. The concept of this training is to attack in a simultaneous manner, neutralizing the opponent and controlling the fight. Continuous follow up (strike) on every tactical strike is a must. The end of every strike should be the beginning of the next one. This will redirect your opponent's counter moves and let you control the fight. Blocking is essential for effective counter-options. Balance is a factor of technique. Foot work is the stable structure of defense and offense.

Understanding the importance of balance, the ranges of target and foot work are vital on every attacking and countering aspect. The effectiveness of hand and foot as a weapon is the base form of each distance. Leg kicks are used for long range distance and mobility of jumping. Sliding and body shifting are additional factors on distance maneuvers. Circular punching, straight punches, back hand and chopping are for medium range. The elbow, knee kicks and upper cut punches are for short ranges. The main key is to understand how your own body functions in every position. Then reach beyond as your body adopts and applies these techniques.
The third principle is the continued practice and preservation of the "dancing ways" of patterned drills and forms which Filipinos called "Sayaw " (a dance). These practices are armed and unarmed and performed in non-aggressive body movements. This is dedicatedly performed for the development and preservation of the arts and for training the body. This principle teaches your physical being and mind to react instantly according to the situation of the attack, if engage in real fighting.
