Eskrima is a beautiful martial art that originated in the Philippines. It is the national sport of the Philippines, and has a very long history of combat effectiveness. One difference from other martial arts is that the student is taught to train with weapons from the very start, rather than beginning with empty-hands training. The Filipino Martial Arts ingrain an interrelationship between empty-hand skills and weapons, and because of this philosophy, Eskrima is widely recognized in the martial arts community for its extreme practicality and effectiveness.
Inayan Eskrima is a complete martial art system, founded by Mangisursuro Mike G. Inay. As part of this system we study several styles of Eskrima, but we focus on three "core styles": Inayan Kadena de Mano, Inayan Serrada, and Inayan Largo Mano. Having these three styles that cover three separate ranges, and being able to flow between them effortlessly, is the key to balancing out Inayan Eskrima.
