Filipino Martial Arts

Eskrima, Arnis or Kali

Eskrima (also known as Kali or Arnis) is an incredibly versatile martial art that originated in the Philippines. You’ll develop a refined sense of effective angle of both attack and defense. Initially trained with rattan sticks, the eskrima practtoner, or eskrimador, quickly learns that this attack style can be applied with either a knife, a sword, or with empty hands. It is used as a practical self defense system and can easily be applied to real world situations. Training is performed through solo and partner drills as well as through sparring.
