What is Team Sled Dog?

Team Sled Dog Full Contact Stick Fighting
Team Sled Dog
The Team Sled Dog is a group of like-minded individuals who train in Filipino martial arts (FMA or “Kali”) under the direction of Tuhon Philip “Sled Dog” Gelinas. More precisely they have their own expression of Pekiti Tirsia Kali and Lacoste-Inosanto blend Kali.
When Tuhon Gelinas was asked how he became a Dog Brother, he said that he simply showed up, answering the call to fight not only at Ramblas Park for three days straight, but also at other venues and events.
It is this “bring it on” attitude, this non theoretical but practical approach that we, as a group, are dedicated to develop. In addition to thoroughly practicing the fundamentals of Pekiti Tirsia Kali and Lacoste-Inosanto Kali, and being highly influenced by the Dog Brothers Martial arts we encouraged our peers to confront the fear of contact and jump into the fray of sparring with minimal protection (fencing mask and gloves, unpadded stick).
Within this group, we strive to improve our fighting skills, validate our techniques, all while leaving our ego at the door in a friendly environment. With Sled Dog, we follow the Dog Brothers’ credo: Higher Conscience Through Harder Contact!
If this is your calling, come and join our team and this wonderful brotherly community! Woof!
