PHILIPPINE MARTIAL ARTS - ARNIS /KALI /ESCRIMA
Eskrima (also known as Arnis and Kali) is a weapon - based martial art which comes from the Philippines. It is the national sport of the Philippines, and has a very long history of combat effectiveness. Only recently has this art become more conspicuous in many countries and enjoyed by other more traditional asian arts. Its difference from other martial arts is that the student is taught to train with weapons from the very start, rather than starting on empty hands training (like many martial arts do). This type of training builds manual dexterity in the practitioner and also trains faster conditioned responses to various attacks. Although it is weapons based, it also includes striking (kicking and punching), wrestling and grappling, and even groundfighting, as well as teaching practical defenses against commonly used weapons.
Philippine Combatives™ is the style of Philippine martial arts taught at King Tiger Charlotte. It is a composite of various classical and modern fighting systems used in the Philippines. The student is introduced to the various systems in the full range of fighting. An emphasis is placed on self-defense drills to train the student to react instinctively from far range (malayo) medium range (medyo) to close range (malapit).
Philippine Combatives™ is an art that has a realistic approach to personal protection. The discipline combines hand-to-hand training (mano - mano) and weapon defenses with practical utilization with ground survival techniques (Dumog). Its practical approach is second to none. Adults have different abilities and limitations. Knowing this makes this program ideal to any adult interested in martial arts training that will work with his/her own self and abilities, not against it!
