Eskrima : Filipino Martial Art, Paperback


Eskrima, which is also known as Arnis [De Mano] or Kali, is the indigenous martial art of the Philippine Islands.

Dynamic and flexible, with a wide range of training methods it can be practised by students of all ages and levels of fitness.

Well known and respected as a highly practical weapons-based system, Eskrima is practised worldwide by civilians, law enforcement personnel and special units within the military.

Eskrima uses training weapons [rattan sticks and daggers] from the earliest stages, alongside purely unarmed techniques.

These training methods have been found particularly effective at increasing co-ordination and reflexes, providing a fast tract to developing the qualities needed for practical self-defence.
