Sakan Lam of Core Combat Chiang Mai

Hi! I'm Sakan Lam, Founder and Head Instructor of Core Combat Chiang Mai.

In my 8 years of studying the Filipino Martial Arts, I've dedicated myself towards specializing in several systems of Kali. And to this day, it remains the most impressive and hard-hitting self-defense oriented martial art I've ever witnessed.

Finding an instructor in Kali is extremely hard, yet I've been fortunate enough to have been mentored by some of the best in the industry. For that reason, I wanted to share with you the most important techniques, drills, and concepts that I've learned from all my years of study and application.

With Kali Online - Way of the Weapon, you'll be able to access the course material from anywhere in the world to share with your training partners and students. I guarantee that your skill sets will reach new levels, as did mine when I began my practice of this deadly and efficient art!

Good luck in training, and remember, I'll be here every step of the way. Thank you!

"'Kali is my favourite of all the martial arts taught at Core Combat."

Tulay Luu, Kali and MMA Practitioner

'I have been doing it for 6 months now and I am completely hooked! Sakan is a great instructor. He goes through the theory of each strike/sequence and monitors your technique and give tips on how to improve. He is extremely patient and encouraging, and I love how his sequences flow together, making it look dangerous yet elegant at the same time.'
