What Is Filipino Martial Arts?
Arnis, also known as Kali or Eskrima/Escrima, is the national martial art of the Philippines. The three are roughly interchangeable umbrella terms for the traditional martial arts of the Philippines (“Filipino Martial Arts“, or FMA), which emphasize weapon-based fighting with sticks, knives, bladed weapons, and various improvised weapons, as well as “open hand” techniques without weapons.

“It’s so refreshing to have an authoritative figure who is prominent in the Philippines actually here training in the states. Nowhere else would I be able to find one of the originals to learn from the ground up. Beginners and experienced martial artists will be surprised at the expansive knowledge base of Laken Eli and the traditional skills taught. I would suggest this class to anyone!“
“Grand Master Eli is the real deal. This is the only place in Redding to learn such a practical and effective martial art. If you’re into martial arts, I’d HIGHLY recommend learning FMA. Or if you’re just wanting practical self-defense skills, this is the place to learn it. You won’t regret it.”
