Escrima is a dynamic, complete martial art that utilises both weapons and empty-handed combat. If you are interested in getting fit, learning something new or serious about learning skills to protect yourself and others in a real confrontation, then Escrima is for you.
Escrima, also known as Kali, Arnis or FMA, is a comprehensive martial art originating from the Philippines. Modern Escrima has evolved into a practical, realistic, self-defence martial art suited to the violent situations you may encounter today.
We begin training with a single stick, a simple, inexpensive tool that is readily available. This training lays the foundations of the body mechanics required to use all weapons and also enables you to utilise everyday objects, such as a pen or mobile phone, into effective weapons. This also transfers to all aspects of unarmed combat. Escrima uses only techniques that work and are instinctive.
