Filipino Kali Hubud Drills

Hubud are close range trapping and sensitivity drills practiced widely within the Filipino Kali martial art. Also called
Higot Hubud Lubud drills they represent various types of solutions (deflections, clears, checks, etc.) to various problems (hit, grab, tackle, etc). They are continuously connecting and disconnecting with all types of techniques. Hubud are a possibility generator...


Each slight change creates a new type of possibility. As you train Hubud you begin to realize how not to do things and how to rightly do things. It teaches you not to crowd your own movements so as you prevent getting trapped yourself, also it teaches that when hands can't help you, that quick positional changes of your body will. The Hubud drills can have a prefix, insertion, and suffix type actions such as getting in an arm-lock first then using Hubud as a way to escape and deliver a counter strike or lock of your own, a throw, a kick, etc.


The full name of these drills is higot at hampak hubud at hampak lubud at hampak. Higot is the concept of tying up an opponents limbs, whereas Hampak means hit. Hubud is the concept of untying your own limbs from a trap, once again you then return a strike. Lubud means to blend together, once again after doing so you strike. The aim of these drills is to develop energy awareness & sensitivity in close range. Higot Hubud Lubud drills Hubud drills are done at Corto distance or close range from angles of attack 1, 2, 3, 4 & 5, by using two main principles of Filipino Kali: Passa (going with the incoming force) and Contradas (going against the incoming force).

1. Receive
2. Redirect
3. Return


Hubud drills have several components to them:

1. Upper body striking
2. Upper body clinching
3. Lower body kicking/kneeing
