American reality star Doug Marcaida is an edged weapon combat specialist who designs some of the world’s deadliest blades and knives. He is the founder of Marcaida Kali, evolving martial art system in the Philippines.

Marcaida’s Wiki-Bio: Embraces Filipino Ethnicity

Moreover, the weapons combat expert is yet to reveal his birthday, age, and parents’ details.

But he once mentioned his father in his Instagram post while sharing a picture of his father and his two sons.

“Dad...In the case of my sons Dj and Jaden, You are the grandfather! Lol...My dad in the middle at 16. My middle and youngest at 16,” Marcaida wrote in his caption.

His Injury Prone Profession Credited for His Net Worth

The artist serves as a judge in the History Channel’s original competition series Forged in Fire. Though he appears to be the most kind of all the judges, he is a dangerous man.

He deals with the most dangerous blades, which can even result in vicious injury. But Marcaida is conscious of the danger and teaches others about its consequences. He even mispronounces the word ‘Kill’ as ‘Keal,’ and he believes it’s for a perfect reason. As per him, ‘Keal’ stands for ‘Keep Everyone Alive.’

Likewise, he is the founder of Marcaida Kali, a heavily based martial art technique based on South East Asian styles. He also designs some of the world’s fatal blades and owns a knife shop called Marcaida Kali, where he sells his line of knives and other combat accessories.

Being a founder and owner, his net worth probably must be in the thousands. However, the exact details of net worth remain confined.

He Didn't Always Know How To Forge

According to Marcaida’s bio on History Channel, he specializes in hand-to-hand combat and battlefield strategy. One might add that the Forged in Fire judge is the walking encyclopedia in the evolution of weapons of war.

Despite being edged weapon combat specialists, neither he nor his fellow judge, Wil Wilis, knew how to forge until the third season of the show Forged in Fire. They were taught by J. Neilson, a fellow judge on the show.

History even released a clip chronicling the whole debacle. Marcaida can be seen appearing really frustrated with the task at hand throughout the duration of the whole clip.

He was quoted as saying: “This is why I pay people for this!”

Marcaida Is Married and Has Kids

Marcaida is a married man. But he prefers to keep the details of his married life very private, especially that of his wife.

That being said, he has disclosed that he has three sons — the names of two of his sons are Jaden Christopher Marcaida and Douglas James Marcaida.

Moreover, he occasionally posts their pictures on social media. Doing that, in January 2018, Marcaida mentioned his children on his Instagram.
