A Filipino martial art focusing on bare-handed techniques as well as fighting with weapons, especially sticks and knives. Kali is often called Escrima (Fencing) or Arnis (a name given by the Spanish to the decorations on the weapons). Kali places a great emphasis on wrist strength, dodging, mobility and smooth flow. Other main aspects are the implementation of articular levers and the study of the human body's pressure points. It is a very effective fighting style, using every part of the body as a weapon and ditching flashy techniques in favor of quicker, more straightforward ones which can provide fast kills.
"Karate is a one-on-one confrontation between two honorable fighters; Kali is war."

know as a goddess for power, beauty and the art of pushing someone out of their boundary line in order for them to grow. This goddess is more than a good friend but a beautiful creature. With hair flowing long and beautiful eyes no one can resist her. Although at the first meeting she may be timid but it is only hiding the wild goddess inside of her. To be friends with someone named Kali is like having good luck for the rest of your life.

1. A really amazing girl who everyone looks up to. She's gorgeous but people don't love her for her looks. She stands up for what is right and wont tolerate stupidity or obnoxiousness from anyone. She does her best to help people when they need it, but has no sympathy for people who ignored her original advice and got into trouble. She is a down-to-earth chick with a fun, caring personality. (Generally does what makes her happy.)
She totally just pulled a Kali, she doesn't take any shit!

Woah, i wish i was Kali. She can do whatever she wants and people still love her!
