Karambit Fundamentals

October 16, 2023 @ 6:00 pm 8:00 pm CDT

Introduction to Karambit. The Karambit is a remarkable multi-use knife designed for safety, precision, and efficiency. It has a curved or hooked blade, an ergonomic handle, and and usually includes at least one safety ring. One of the premier tools for Southeast Asian Fighting Arts. Karambit knives are valued for their precise cuts, high degree of retention, and sustainability for nearly every challenge, job, or task. In self defense application a Karambit’s curve offers the ability to fluidly attack and counter in a single motion and to change movement direction with ease. It also allows simultaneous striking from multiple lines of attack and readily enables hooking, trapping, ripping, and slicing. It’s an integral part of most Filipino Fighting Arts. In Filipino, it is called the “Lihok” or “Sanggot.”

Instructor: Tuhon Jesse, a Filipino Martial Artist, a Grandmaster in Pekiti Tirsia Kali. He has extensive years of Martial Arts and he will discuss basics, nomenclature, grips, use/functions, and deployment of the Lihok/Sanggot. Basic techniques will be presented and forms/drills will be introduced.
