    A PURE DELIGHT

    I've see several martial arts movies but most lack actual realizsm. But the Perfect Weapon is in a class of its own. Jeff Speakman is outstanding as well as the story line. This movie will keep you interested and will be enjoyable every time you see it.

    The use of Kali

    This movie really shows off a true form of the Philippine Martial Art known as Kali, or Eskrima. Stick fighting originated on the streets of the Philippines and is a brutal martial art. Jeff Speakman shows what Kali can do and how it is used. Great action sequences throughout this film!
