Escrima (also known as Arnis and Kali) is a weapons-based Martial Art which originated in the Philippines. It is the nation's national sport and has a long history of combat effectiveness. This art is steadily growing in popularity in many countries and is getting towards the same level as more traditional Asian arts. The difference between Escrima and other Martial Arts is that the student is taught to train with weapons from the very start, rather than starting with empty hand training.
This type of training builds manual dexterity in the practitioner and also builds quicker conditioned responses to various attacks. Although it is weapons-based, it also includes striking (kicking and punching), wrestling, grappling, and even ground fighting, as well as teaching practical defences against most weapons.
