Eskrima (also known as Kali or Arnis) is an incredibly versatile martial art from the Philippines. When training in these arts you learn a refined sense of effective angles of attack and defense. Though initially trained with rattan sticks, the Eskrimador quickly learns that these angles of attack can be worked with, among other things, a knife, a sword, or with the empty hand. The variety and versatility of the Filipino martial arts derives from this ability to use whatever tool is at hand for devastatingly effective self defense.Your training in the Filipino Martial Arts in our classes will focus on footwork drills to develop effective evasive movement and work conditioning and strength. With dedicated practice you will notice a significant improvement in your agility and stability.The strike flow patterns are worked offensively and defensively to train sharp coordination and highly refine the reflexes. These patterns progress to incorporate trapping and disarming techniques which are used to eliminate the threat of an opponent’s weapon. We then move into free form sparring, applying everything we have learned in a live situation. These classes are exciting, varied and a lot of fun. Many who would never dream of fighting someone become avid  practitioners and love learning the rhythm and science of these arts.
