Urban Escrima

Originating from the Philippines, Escrima was used against the Spanish colonialists in the 1500’s. Escrima has since evolved into a modern, realistic and effective martial art. It is unique in that the practitioner uses weapons from the beginning. Everything which we do with a weapon in Escrima, we use the same concepts for our unarmed applications. This has the benefit of making Escrima Concepts an easily accessible martial art and simplified for street situations. Because we use weapons in addition to unarmed training, your manual dexterity, coordination and reflexes will improve rapidly. We live in a society in which weapons are used widely in violent crime, understanding weapons can prove invaluable in protecting yourself.
