What is Eskrima?

Eskrima, (sometimes called Kali or Arnis), is a Filipino martial art, which contains a comprehensive empty hand system as well as various weapons.

There are two main types of Arnis practiced as a sport. The most common system used internationally involves participants sparring with live sticks while wearing a long padded vest with skirt and sleeves and a helmet similar to Kendo headgear. Hitting below the thigh is prohibited.
