Marcaida Kali is a Filipino Martial Art created by Kuya Doug Marcaida, the edged weapons expert of History Channel's Forged in Fire. It is a weapons based fighting system heavily based off of various Southeast Asian fighting systems that Marcaida had mastered or trained in. A partial overview of his martial arts background can be found [WWW]here.

Marcaida Kali's main dojo is located in Pittsford Place Mall, which shares its space with Eastern Sky Aikido.

New students are advised to come in during a Monday or Friday night class, as classes held at other times are either by appointment (Friday afternoon), for more advanced students (both Wednesday classes), or by invite only (second Wednesday class). The dojo can be found by either entering from the northern side of the building and going straight, or by entering from the western side (facing Monroe Avenue), going straight to the very end of the hallway, and turning right.

Marcaida Kali instructors also teach at the Rochester Institute of Technology in its [WWW]Kali Club.
