Eskrima is the name for a number of martial arts that originated in the Philippines. The art is also known as Arnis and Kali.
Eskrima is a diverse and practical martial art consisting of many variants. Characteristically, students in the art learn how to use and defend against weapons first and later learn empty hands techniques.
Students of Eskrima can typically expect to learn the following:
- Single stick (baston)
- Double stick (doble baston)
- Stick and knife (olisi y baraw)
- Sword and dagger (espada y daga)
- Pangamut (boxing techniques)
- Sikiran (kicking)
- Dumog (wrestling techniques)
Eskrima is a very flexible martial art, which can either serve as a complete martial art in itself, or alternatively as a very practical complement to any other martial art. Eskrima is highly practical in nature and was designed for real combat, both in warring times in the Philipines and nowadays in modern civilian life.
