Texas Kali Association Purpose

Texas Kali Master Camp 2012 Group

Integrity, Leadership and Mastery

The Texas Kali Association Vision Statement holds multiple layers of meaning: 

Integrity - The Texas Kali Association members value integrity in character, integrity in how we represent ourselves as well as integrity in how we preserve the art of Kali. 

Leadership - We are here because we love the art and hope to represent it in a positive light as well as glorify it through serving the community.  In doing so, we hope to positively impact the lives of others and lead through service and sharing.

Mastery - "Back to Basics" or the focus on "Mastery" has been a theme of our training philosophy from day one.  Mastery implies working towards perfection and is not only a quest to improve skill in Kali, but to master oneself and thereby become a better person.
