Trivia about Arnis

According to WikiPilipinas, “Arnis, also known as Eskrima and Kali is the National Sport and Martial Art of the Philippines. It is an umbrella term that refers to a class of Filipino martial arts that emphasize weapon-based fighting with sticks, blades and improvised weapons. Although training starts with weapons, empty hand techniques, trapping and limb destruction are core parts of these arts as the weapon is considered merely an extension of the body. Eskrima and Arnis are the most common among the many names often used in the Philippines today to refer to these arts.”
