This comprehensive taster course consists of 60 videos worth 3 hours of instructions encompassing various components of the Eskrima system.
Eskrima also known as Kali or Arnis is a traditional martial art originating from the Philippines. It has its roots deep in the culture and history of the Filipino people, however its exact origin and beginning could not exactly be determined and is still the subject of debate up to the present.
Indisputable however is the fact that it was Lapu-Lapu, the chieftain of the small island of Mactan who first exposed the art to the world, when he had engaged the great explorer Ferdinand Magellan in that historic Battle of Mactan.
Filipino martial artists are noted for their ability to fight with weapons and empty hands interchangeably. The components of Eskrima include single and double sticks, knife defense, latigo or whips, bangkaw or long stick, and mano-mano or empty hands.
