MARTIAL ARTS & SELF-DEFENSE
DEPENSA KALYE - THE ART OF STREET DEFENSE AND PREPARATION FOR THE UNEXPECTED
DEPENSA KALYE, founded by Dio Santiago is the culmination of over 30 years of extensive Martial Arts & Self-Defense, Tactical and Law Enforcement training. DEPENSA KALYE is a comprehensive, integrated system that combines elements of martial arts & self-defense techniques, western boxing and fitness conditioning. The core of DEPENSA KALYE is self-protection and what is effective on the streets.
DEPENSA KALYE incorporates empty hand training as well as weapons training. Students practice on a variety of equipment, including punching bags, body opponent bags, focus mitts, kicking and body shields. Our students learn the foundations of muscle memory, body movement, strikes, kicks, leverages and throws, as well as kickboxing training, grappling, ground application and physical conditioning. Heavy bag workouts improve hand-eye coordination, quickness of reflexes, how to gauge distance and effectively land punches or kicks on a target.
DEPENSA KALYE is appropriate for anyone regardless of age, fitness level or prior experience. Check out our FAQs page for more information.
