The Filipino Martial Arts known as Eskrima, Kali, and Arnis are true cultural gems of Southeast Asia.
Traditionally passed down through families and tight-knit communities, these arts represent centuries of development and innovation. Like the islands and the people themselves, these martial arts have absorbed the influence of Vedic, Islamic, Chinese and Western European cultures and colorfully grown into something uniquely Filipino.
While they can be beautiful to watch and fun to practice, the Filipino Martial Arts are widely acknowledged to be among the most direct and effective combat systems known to the world. The material presented in this class is extremely effective in terms of self defense.
The majority of our training makes use of the 28″ rattan fighting stick, which may be purchased from the instructor. This class covers a wide range of single-stick, double-stick, and empty-handed fighting methods.
No previous martial arts experience is required. Safety, Respect, and Good Conduct are emphasized above all else. We look forward to training with you. Mabuhay!
