Eskrima is a beautiful martial art that originated in the Philippines. It has a very long history of combat application and is a national sport taught in many parts of the Philippines today. What makes Eskrima different from other well known martial arts, is that the students start training with weapons along with empty-hands from the beginning. The idea behind this philosophy allows for flexibility of application depending on the situation. In most cases the concepts one learns with weaponry can be translated into empty-hand techniques. Because of this interrelationship between weapons philosophy and empty-hand skills, Eskrima is widely recognized for its extreme practicality and effectiveness.
