Jessie Santiago


\nstructor: Jessie Santiago 


Jessie has been into martial artist since childhood, and has been practicing the Filipino & Indonesian Martial Arts since 2005 under Maha Guro Defensor.  He took a hiatus from training from 2006-2009 to focus on his projects and business.  He returned to train consistently with the Filipino Kali-Eskrima Academy in early 2009 and has been teaching since 2012.  As of 2018, Jessie is a Level 4 (of 5) instructor and is currently working on completing the art.

Jessie's love for martial arts has extended into other areas of training.  He has studied and cross trained in various styles of martial arts such as San Shou (aka Sunda), Jeet Kun Do, Combative Tai-Chi, boxing, Brazilian Jiu-Jitusu, Muay Thai and other Filipino Martial Art (FMA) styles.  Though he is not ranked in any of the other system, he enjoys learning from other styles.  Jessie is also learning another FMA style called Balintawak, a style from Cebu founded by Ancion Bacon.  He is working on his completion of the art for Balintawak and also teaches this style outside of the curriculum of the Filipino-Kali Eskrima Academy to those who are interested.

He has been teaching basic & intermediate classes for the Filipino Kali-Eksrima Academy and participated in many events, seminars and activities since 2012.

Outside of teaching and training FMA, Jessie likes to travel and create videos.
