Feliciano N. He met with the top NSA officials at that time; however, nothing happened. Aniano Lota, Jr. And this was the start of the modern, contemporary and prevailing Arnis in the Department of Education.

In just two months, Arnis became part of the Palarong Pambansa National Games as a demonstration sport. The Palarong Pambansa was held in Naga City, Bicol Region with nine out of the seventeen regions of the Philippines participating.

National, regional and provincial Arnis Seminars were conducted by the tandem of Mr. Feliciano "Len" Toledo, and with the financial and logistical backing of the Department of Education.

In , Arnis was already a regular event in the Palarong Pambansa with all seventeen regions participating. Five weight divisions in the Full-contact Event and four categories in the Anyo Forms Event were played and became part of the official medal tally of the participants.

This was held in Coronadal in Mindanao. Arnis Seminars were continued in national, regional and provincial levels. These were all conducted by the tandem of Mr.

In , Arnis was played in the Palarong Pambansa and again, with all seventeen regions participating. All nine events were played. This was held in Puerto Princesa City, Palawan.

Aside from Sports Officiating and Accreditation seminars, Coaching and skill training seminars continued in national, regional and provincial levels.

Requests from cities and even districts were also welcomed. The "evangelization" of Arnis was continued and both Gialogo and Lota were careful not to teach their personal styles.

Both taught in "generic" form and focused on the rules of sports as promulgated by the Department of Education. From the original five member teams, the number doubled with the inclusion of the girls.

The medal tally also doubled from nine to eighteen. Richardson Gialogo and Mr. Again, both secondary boys and girls competed in the eighteen categories.

In the Palarong Pambansa, Elementary students joined. One of the most important practices in classical Arnis was dueling, without any form of protection.

The matches were preceded by cock-fighting and could be held in any open space, sometimes in a specially constructed enclosure.

Arnisadores believe this tradition pre-dates the colonial period, pointing to similar practices of kickboxing matches in mainland Indochina as evidence.

Spanish records tell of such dueling areas where cock-fights took place. The founders of most of the popular Arnis systems were famous duelists and legends circulate about how many opponents they killed.

In rural areas throughout the Philippines today, modern Arnis matches are still held in dueling arenas. In bigger cities, recreations of duels are sometimes held at parks by local Arnis training-halls.

These demonstrations are not choreographed beforehand but neither are they full-contact competitions. In modern times, public dueling with blades has been deemed illegal in the Philippines due to high potential of severe injury or death.

Dueling with live sticks and minimal protection still occurs during barrio fiestas in some towns such as in Paete in Laguna. There are two main types of Arnis practised as a sport.

The WEKAF system works on a point must system similar to boxing where participants spar 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. This format has sometimes been criticized because it emphasizes a heavy offense at the expense of defensive techniques sometimes with players raining blows on each other without defending, giving rise to the impression that combatants are merely hitting each other in a disorganized way.

This has been tackled by introducing a "four second rule" [ clarification needed ] , to prevent constant and unrealistic attacks, and judges do not to score the same strike if the fighter uses it more than twice in succession.

Judges warn fighters and remove points if they continue after two warnings. However, fights can easily come down to an unrealistic attack from an unskilled fighter who impresses judges with many body hits after taking two or three clear, strong hits to the hands and head.

Moreover, participants have been known to suffer broken bones and injured tendons due to the fact that live sticks are used, so the older system is considered more 'hardcore' and less safe.

Another complaint about the WEKAF system is that it uses the point must system , which is more subjective depending on who is judging.

Since the WEKAF system is more risky, it is preferred by many practitioners who want to test themselves.

Arnis competitions uses foam-padded sticks about an inch in diameter with thin rattan cores roughly a centimeter in diameter.

These sticks are meant to break before serious injury occurs. For protection, the same headgear used in the WEKAF system, and a large groin guard is required for males.

Vests optional for men, required for women , optional armguards, shinguards and leg wraps are used. Scoring is more similar to fencing where fighters are separated after solid clean hits are made observed by multiple judges stationed at different positions to observe if hits were clean and unblocked, and determine the strength of the strike by the loudness of the impact.

Alternative ways to score are to disarm one's opponent or to force him to step outside the ring. Stabs to the face are not allowed, because the thin rattan core may penetrate the padding and slip through the grills of the headgear into the player's eye.

Thrusts to the body score points, but are harder to present to judges for scoring because they make less noise and it is difficult to determine impact.

Punches, kicks and throws are not allowed. Prolonged clinching to prevent the opponent from striking is not allowed similar to Western Boxing to keep the game moving and more interesting for audience that may not appreciate the fine and practical aspects of grappling.

Disarms must be performed quickly and cleanly to count. Because the legs are fair targets, in lighter weight divisions, complex evasion and deep lunges where players lie horizontal with the torso almost touching the floor to extend reach are often seen.

The emphasis of the ARPI system is on player safety, as proponents are applying to become a recognized Olympic sport like judo , karate , taekwondo , wrestling , boxing , and fencing.

Even though padded sticks are used in the sport, players regularly retain large bruises that last for weeks and sometimes minor injuries to joints and because of the sheer amount of force generated by conditioned practitioners.

Sometimes the stuffing commonly comes off from the harder hitting players and one cause of injury is when a player is struck by the exposed rattan core.

Still, these are relatively minor as compared to injuries sustained when practitioners spar with live sticks. One major problem with the ARPI system is that because the padded sticks with light rattan cores are used, they tend to flex and "lag", thus making the experience significantly different from using a live stick and in that sense, lessens the "realism" of this system.

This is acceptable though as again, the emphasis is on safety. Aside from the visual appeal, practical combative applications must be clearly seen so as to avoid looking like just majorettes in marching bands who just twirl batons and dance a concept similar to the Floreio "flourish" aspect of Capoeira and to Tricking which are more for show than practicality.

In another variation that simulates knife fights, competitors use false blades edged with lipstick to mark where an opponent has been struck.

Arnis students start their instruction by learning to fight with weapons, and only advance to empty-hand training once the stick and knife techniques have been sufficiently mastered.

This is in contrast to most other well-known Asian martial arts but it is justified by the principle that bare-handed moves are acquired naturally through the same exercises as the weapon techniques, making muscle memory an important aspect of the teaching.

It is also based on the obvious fact that an armed person who is trained has the advantage over a trained unarmed person, and serves to condition students to fight against armed assailants.

Most systems of Arnis apply a single set of techniques for the stick, knife, and empty hands, a concept sometimes referred to as motion grouping.

Since the weapon is seen as simply an extension of the body, the same angles and footwork are used either with or without a weapon.

The reason for this is probably historical, because tribal warriors went into battle armed and only resorted to bare-handed fighting after losing their weapons.

Many systems begin training with two weapons, either a pair of sticks or a stick and a wooden knife. These styles emphasise keeping both hands full and never moving them in the same direction, and trains practitioners to become ambidextrous.

For example, one stick may strike the head while the other hits the arm. Such training develops the ability to use both limbs independently, a valuable skill, even when working with a single weapon.

A core concept and distinct feature of Filipino martial arts is the Live Hand. Even when as a practitioner wields only one weapon, the extra hand is used to control, trap or disarm an opponent's weapon and to aid in blocking, joint locking and manipulation of the opponent or other simultaneous motions such as bicep destruction with the live hand.

The most basic and common weapon in Arnis is the baston or yantok. They are typically constructed from rattan , an inexpensive stem from a type of Southeast Asian vine.

Hard and durable yet lightweight, it shreds only under the worst abuse and does not splinter like wood, making it a safer training tool.

This aspect makes it useful in defense against blades. Kamagong ironwood or ebony and bahi heart of the palm are sometimes used after being charred and hardened.

These hardwoods are generally not used for sparring, however, as they are dense enough to cause serious injury, but traditional sparring does not include weapon to body contact.

The participants are skilled enough to parry and counterstrike, showing respect in not intentionally hitting the training partner. In modern times, many Arnis practitioners have also come to wear head and hand protection while sparring with rattan sticks, or otherwise use padded bastons.

Some modern schools also use sticks made out of aluminium or other metals, or modern high-impact plastics. Baraw is a Cebuano term used in eskrima that means knife or dagger.

The term Baraw is more commonly used on the Cebu Island in the Visayan region whereas other islands and regions more commonly use the term Daga but both terms are often interchangeable within the Filipino martial arts community.

The terms Baraw and Daga can be used either as Solo Baraw or Solo Daga associated with single knife fighting and defense systems, Doble Baraw or Doble Daga associated with the double knife fighting systems or even with a combination of long and short weapons e.

The practitioners must conform to criteria based on the number of years of training and level of proficiency in technical skills.

Practitioners are screened by the rank promotion committee to determine their rank in the grading system. Most systems recognize that the technical nature of combat changes drastically as the distance between opponents changes, and generally classify the ranges into at least three categories.

Each range has its characteristic techniques and footwork. Of course, some systems place more emphasis on certain ranges than others, but almost all recognize that being able to work in and control any range is essential.

The Balintawak style for example, uses long-, medium- and short-range fighting techniques, but focuses on the short-range.

To control the range, and for numerous other purposes, good footwork is essential. Most eskrima systems explain their footwork in terms of triangles: normally when moving in any direction two feet occupy two corners of the triangle and the step is to the third corner such that no leg crosses the other at any time.

The shape and size of the triangle must be adapted to the particular situation. The style of footwork and the standing position vary greatly from school to school and from practitioner to practitioner.

For a very traditional school, conscious of battlefield necessities, stances are usually very low, often with one knee on the ground, and footwork is complex, involving many careful cross-steps to allow practitioners to cope with multiple opponents.

The Villabrille and San Miguel styles are usually taught in this way. Systems that have been adapted to duels or sporting matches generally employ simpler footwork, focusing on a single opponent.

North American schools tend to use much more upright stances, as this puts less stress on the legs, but there are some exceptions. The theory behind this is that virtually all types of hand-to-hand attacks barehanded or with a weapon hit or reach a combatant via these angles of attack and the reasoning is that it is more efficient to learn to defend against different angles of attack rather than learn to defend against particular styles, particular techniques or particular weapons.

For instance, the technique for defending against an attack angle that comes overhead from the right is very similar whether the attacker uses bare fists, a knife, a sword or a spear.

Older styles gave each angle a name, but more recent systems tend to simply number them. Many systems have twelve standard angles, though some have as few as 5, and others as many as Although the exact angles, the order they are numbered in numerado , and the way the player executes moves vary from system to system, most are based upon Filipino cosmology.

These standard angles describe exercises. To aid memorization, player often practise a standard series of strikes from these angles, called an abecedario Spanish for "alphabet".

These are beginner strikes or the "ABC's" of Arnis. Arnis techniques are generally based on the assumption that both student and opponent are very highly trained and well prepared.

For this reason, Arnis tends to favor extreme caution, always considering the possibility of a failed technique or an unexpected knife.

On the other hand, the practitioner is assumed able to strike precisely and quickly. The general principle is that an opponent's ability to attack should be destroyed rather than trying to hurt them to convince them to stop.

Thus many strikes are aimed at the hands and arms, hoping to break the hand holding the weapon or cut the nerves or tendons controlling it the concept of defanging the snake , but strikes to the eyes and legs are also important.

A popular mnemonic states that "stick seeks bone, blade seeks flesh". Mano Mano is the empty-hand component of Filipino martial arts , particularly Arnis.

The term translates as "hands" or "hand to hand" and comes from the Spanish word mano hand. Mano mano also includes kicking , punching , locking, throwing and dumog grappling.

Filipino martial artists regard the empty hands as another weapon and all the movements of mano mano are directly based on weapon techniques.

In Arnis, weapons are seen as an extension of the body so training with weapons naturally leads to proficiency in bare-handed combat. For this reason, mano mano is often taught in the higher levels of Arnis after weapons training has been mastered because advanced students are expected to be able to apply their experience with weapons to unarmed fighting.

This not always the case though, as some systems of Arnis start with and at times only consist of empty hands fighting. Paninipa , Pagsipa , Pananadiyak , Pagtadiyak , and Sikaran all terms for "kicking" in various regions, dialects and styles are components of eskrima that focus on knees, tripping, low-line kicks, and stomps.

Except for the distinct style of Sikaran from the Baras area of the province of Rizal , which also uses high kicks, kicking as a separate art is never taught by itself in the Philippines, and this practice is only done in the West with Pananjakman.

Pananjakman is usually taught together with Panantukan. Paninipa can be regarded as the study of leg muscles and bones and how they are connected, with the goal of either inflicting pain or outright breaking or dislocating the bones.

Most striking techniques involve applying pressure to bend the target areas in unnatural ways so as to injure or break them. Such pressure may be delivered in the form of a heel smash, a toe kick, a stomp, or a knee.

Targets include the groin, thighs, knees, shins, ankles, feet and toes. The upper body is used only for defensive maneuvers, making pananadiyak ideal for when combatants are engaged in a clinch.

When used effectively, the strikes can bring an opponent to the ground or otherwise end an altercation by making them too weak to stand.

Fundamental techniques include kicking or smashing the ankle to force it either towards or away from the opposite foot severe supination or pronation, respectively , heel-stomping the top of the foot where it meets the lower leg so as to break or crush the numerous bones or otherwise disrupt the opponent's balance, and smashing the opponents knee from the side to break the knee with severe supination and pronation as the desired result.

Several classes of exercises, such as sombrada , contrada , sinawali , hubud-lubud and sequidas , initially presented to the public as a set of organized drills by the Inosanto school, are expressly designed to allow partners to move quickly and experiment with variations while remaining safe.

For example, in a sumbrada drill, one partner feeds an attack, which the other counters, flowing into a counterattack, which is then countered, flowing into a counterattack, and so on.

The hubud-lubud or hubad-lubad from Doce Pares is frequently used as a type of "generator" drill, where one is forced to act and think fast.

Initially, students learn a specific series of attacks, counters, and counter-attacks. As they advance they can add minor variations, change the footwork, or switch to completely different attacks; eventually the exercise becomes almost completely free-form.

Palakaw, from the Balintawak style, are un-choreographed and random defensive and offensive moves. Palakaw in Cebuano means a walk-through or rehearsing the different strike angles and defenses.

It may be known as corridas , or striking without any order or pattern. Disarms, take-downs, and other techniques usually break the flow of such a drill, but they are usually initiated from such a sequence of movements to force the student to adapt to a variety of situations.

A common practice is to begin a drill with each student armed with two weapons. Once the drill is flowing, if a student sees an opportunity to disarm their opponent, they do, but the drill continues until both students are empty-handed.

Some drills use only a single weapon per pair, and the partners take turns disarming each other. Seguidas drills, taken from the San Miguel system, are sets of hitting and movement patterns usually involving stick and dagger.

Rhythm, while an essential part of eskrima drills, is emphasized more in the United States and Europe, where a regular beat serves a guide for students to follow.

To ensure safety, participants perform most drills at a constant pace, which they increase as they progress. Eskrima is usually practised in the Philippines without a rhythm, off-beat or out of rhythm.

The diversity of Filipino martial arts means that there is no officially established standard uniform in eskrima. The live hand is the opposite hand of the practitioner that does not contain the main weapon.

The heavy usage of the live hand is an important concept and distinguishing hallmark of eskrima. Even or especially when empty, the live hand can be used as a companion weapon by eskrima practitioners.

As opposed to most weapon systems like fencing where the off-hand is hidden and not used to prevent it from being hit, eskrima actively uses the live hand for trapping, locking, supporting weapon blocks, checking, disarming, striking and controlling the opponent.

The usage of the live hand is one of the most evident examples of how Eskrima's method of starting with weapons training leads to effective empty hand techniques.

Because of Doble Baston double weapons or Espada y Daga sword and parrying dagger ambidextrous weapon muscle memory conditioning, Eskrima practitioners find it easy to use the off-hand actively once they transition from using it with a weapon to an empty hand.

Doble baston , and less frequently doble olisi , are common names for a group of techniques involving two sticks. The art is more commonly known around the world as Sinawali meaning "to weave".

The term Sinawali is taken from a matting called sawali that is commonly used in the tribal Nipa Huts.

It is made up of woven pieces of palm leaf and used for both flooring and walls. This technique requires the user to use both left and right weapons in an equal manner; many co-ordination drills are used to help the practitioner become more ambidextrous.

It is the section of the art that is taught mainly at the intermediate levels and above and is considered one of the most important areas of learning in the art.

Sinawali refers to the activity of "weaving", as applied Eskrima with reference to a set of two-person, two-weapon exercises.

The term comes from "Sawali", the woven walls of nipa huts. Sinawali exercises provide eskrima practitioners with basic skills and motions relevant to a mode of two-weapon blocking and response method called Doblete.

It helps teach the novice eskrimador proper positioning while swinging a weapon. The Chinese and Malay communities of the Philippines have practiced eskrima together with Kuntaw and Silat for centuries, so much so that many North Americans mistakenly believe silat to have originated in the Philippines.

Some of the modern styles, particularly doce pares and Modern Arnis contain some elements of Japanese Martial Arts such as joint locks, throws, blocks, strikes, and groundwork, taken from: Jujutsu , Judo , Aikido and Karate as some of the founders obtained black belt Dan grades in some of these systems.

Some eskrima styles are complementary with Chinese Wing Chun , or Japanese aikido because of the nervous system conditioning and body mechanics when striking, twirling or swinging sticks.

In Western countries, it is common to practice eskrima in conjunction with other martial arts, particularly Wing Chun , [2] Jeet Kune Do and silat.

As a result, there is some confusion between styles, systems, and lineage, because some people cross-train without giving due credit to the founders or principles of their arts.

Proponents of such training say the arts are very similar in many aspects and complement each other well.

It has become marketable to offer eskrima classes in other traditional Asian martial arts studios in America but some practitioners of other eskrima styles often dismiss these lessons as debased versions of original training methods.

In the Philippines, Arnis is recognized as the country's national sport and martial art by virtue of Republic Act No. Because of this law, Arnis becomes a pre-requisite for P.

More than 4, students and athletes performed Arnis in the Cebu City Sports Center during the closing ceremonies of the Batang Pinoy , to set a record for the largest arnis class in the world for Guinness World Records.

National Commission for Culture and the Arts. Retrieved January 8, Filipino Fighting Arts: Theory and Practice. Tuttle Publishing. It has also been theorized that the Filipino art of Arnis may have roots in India and came to the Philippines via people who traveled through Indonesia and Malaysia to the Philippine islands.

When the Spaniards first arrived in the Philippines, they already observed weapons-based martial arts practised by the natives, which may or may not be related to present-day Arnis.

The earliest written records of Filipino culture and life, including martial arts, come from the first Spanish explorers. Some early expeditions fought native tribesmen armed with sticks and knives.

Some Arnisadors hold that Lapu-Lapu's men killed Magellan in a sword-fight, though historical evidence proves otherwise.

The only eyewitness account of the battle by chronicler, Antonio Pigafetta , tells that Magellan was stabbed in the face and the arm with spears and overwhelmed by multiple warriors who hacked and stabbed at him:.

The natives continued to pursue us, and picking up the same spear four or six times, hurled it at us again and again. Recognizing the captain, so many turned upon him that they knocked his helmet off his head twice, but he always stood firmly like a good knight, together with some others.

Thus did we fight for more than one hour, refusing to retire farther. An Indian hurled a bamboo spear into the captain's face , but the latter immediately killed him with his lance, which he left in the Indian's body.

Then, trying to lay hand on sword, he could draw it out but halfway, because he had been wounded in the arm with a bamboo spear.

When the natives saw that, they all hurled themselves upon him. One of them wounded him on the left leg with a large cutlass, which resembles a scimitar, only being larger.

That caused the captain to fall face downward, when immediately they rushed upon him with iron and bamboo spears and with their cutlasses, until they killed our mirror, our light, our comfort, and our true guide.

When they wounded him, he turned back many times to see whether we were all in the boats. Thereupon, beholding him dead, we, wounded, retreated, as best we could, to the boats, which were already pulling off.

Due to the conflict-ridden nature of the Philippine archipelago, where port-kingdoms were often at war with one another or raiding each other , warriors were forged in the many wars in the islands, thus during the precolonial era, the geographical area acquired a reputation for its capable mercenaries, which were soon employed all across Southeast Asia.

At the same time, Lusung warriors fought alongside the Siamese king and faced the same elephant army of the Burmese king in the defense of the Siamese capital at Ayuthaya.

Pinto noted that there were a number of them in the Islamic fleets that went to battle with the Portuguese in the Philippines during the 16th century.

Pinto also says one was named leader of the Malays remaining in the Moluccas Islands after the Portuguese conquest in Opinions differ on the degree to which Spanish rule in the Philippines affected Arnis.

Some argue though that Spanish names in the martial art simply reflect the fact that Spanish was the lingua franca of the Philippines until the early 20th century, and that actual Spanish martial influence was limited.

What is certain is that the Spaniards brought with them and used their bladed weapon arts including the system of Destreza developed by Carranza when they started colonizing the archipelago in the 16th century.

What is also known is that the Spaniards recruited soldiers from Mexico [40] and Peru [41] and sent them to fortify the Philippines and they had also trained mercenaries and warriors from local people like the Pangasinenses , Kapampangans , Tagalogs , Ilonggos , Cebuanos and Warays to pacify regions and put down revolts.

And it was all the worse because these people had been trained in the military art in our own schools in the presidios fortified outposts of Ternate , Zamboanga , Jolo , Caraga and other places where their valor was well known; but this needs the help of ours, and so they say that a Spaniard plus three Pampangos equal four Spaniards.

Logic dictates that these native warriors and foreign soldiers would have passed on to very close friends and family members these newly learned skills to augment already existing and effective local ones.

They would have also shared tactics and techniques with each other when placed in the same military group and fighting on the same side in foreign regions such as Formosa , Mindanao , the Moluccas [42] and the Marianas.

One of the more prominent features of Arnis that point to possible Spanish influence is the Espada y Daga Spanish for "sword and dagger" method, a term also used in Spanish fencing.

Filipino espada y daga differs somewhat from European rapier and dagger techniques; the stances are different as weapons used in Arnis are typically shorter than European swords.

After the Spanish colonized the Philippines, a decree was set that prohibited civilians from carrying full-sized swords such as the Kris and the Kampilan.

Despite this, the practitioners found ways to maintain and keep the arts alive, using sticks made out of rattan rather than swords, as well as small knives wielded like swords.

Some of the arts were passed down from one generation to the other. Sometimes the art took the form choreographed dances such as the Sakuting stick dance [48] or during mock battles at Moro-moro Moros y Cristianos stage plays.

Also as a result, a unique and complex stick-based technique evolved in the Visayas and Luzon regions. The southern Mindanao retains almost exclusively blade-oriented techniques, as the Spaniards and Americans never fully conquered the southern parts of this island.

Although Arnis combines native fighting techniques with old Spanish fencing and other influences, a degree of systematization was achieved over time, resulting in a distinguishable Philippine martial art.

With time, a system for the teaching of the basics also evolved. However, with the exception of a few older and more established systems, it was previously common to pass the art from generation to generation in an informal approach.

This has made attempts to trace the lineage of a practitioner difficult. For example, aside from learning from their family members like his uncle Regino Ilustrisimo, Antonio Ilustrisimo seemed to have learned to fight while sailing around the Philippines, while his cousin and student Floro Villabrille claimed to have been also taught by a blind Moro princess in the mountains; a claim later refuted by the older Ilustrisimo.

Both have since died. The Philippines has what is known as a blade culture. Local folk in the Philippines are much more likely to carry knives than guns.

They are commonly carried as tools by farmers, used by street vendors to prepare coconuts, pineapples, watermelons, other fruits and meats, and balisongs are cheap to procure in the streets as well as being easily concealed.

In fact, in some areas in the countryside, carrying a farming knife like the itak or bolo was a sign that one was making a living because of the nature of work in those areas.

Soldiers and mercenaries trained in the Philippines which were recruited by France which was then in an alliance with Spain, had fought in Cambodia and Vietnam justified by defending newly converted Catholic populations from persecutions and had assisted France in establishing French Cochinchina centered in Saigon.

Filipinos living in Louisiana at the independent settlement of Saint Malo were recruited to be soldiers commanded by Jean Lafayette in the defense of New Orleans during the War of against a Britain attempting to reconquer a rebel America.

Contrary to the view of some modern historians that it was only guns that won the Philippine revolutionaries against the Spaniards , blades also played a large part.

The Philippine native, like all the kindred Malay races, cannot do any fighting as a rule except at close quarters, slashing with his heavy knife.

The weapon is called machete, or bolo, or kampilan, or parang, or kris. The Mauser rifle, too, in hard work is found to be a mistake. It has a case of five cartridges, which have to be all used before any others can be inserted.

That is, to say, if a soldier has occasion to fire three cartridges he must go on and waste the other two, or else leave himself to meet a possible sudden rush with only two rounds in his rifle.

Perhaps it may be the fault of the men, or their misfortune in being undrilled, but they are often knifed while in the act of reloading their rifles.

Whatever be the explanation there is something wrong in troops with rifles and bayonets being driven steadily back by natives armed with knives.

The insurgents have some guns, but most of the wounded Spanish soldiers seen in the streets have knife wounds. That and similar events led to the request and the development of the Colt M pistol and the.

John T. The arts had no traditional belting or grading systems as they were taught informally. It was said that to proclaim a student a "master" was considered ridiculous and a virtual death warrant as the individual would become challenged left and right to potentially lethal duels by other Arnisadores looking to make names for themselves.

Belt ranking was a recent addition adopted from Japanese arts such as Karate and Judo , which had become more popular with Filipinos.

They were added to give structure to the systems, and to be able to compete for the attention of students. With regards to its spread outside the Philippines, Arnis was brought to Hawaii and California as far back as the s by Filipino migrant workers.

Even then, instructors teaching Arnis in the s and 70s were often reprimanded by their elders for publicly teaching a part of their culture that had been preserved through secrecy.

He ran seminars with the help of other masters such as Maurice Novoa a Wing Chun instructor. In recent years, there has been increased interest in Arnis for its usefulness when defending against knives in street encounters.

As a result, many systems of Arnis have been modified in varying degrees to make them more marketable to a worldwide audience. Usually this involves increased emphasis on locking, controls, and disarms, focusing mainly on aspects of self-defense.

However, most styles follow the philosophy that the best defense is a good offense. Modern training methods tend to de-emphasize careful footwork and low stances, stressing the learning of techniques in favor of more direct and often lethal tactics designed to instantly end an encounter.

Arnis was first introduced in to some public and private school teachers when Remy Presas taught his personal style of Arnis which he called " Modern Arnis ".

The style "Modern Arnis" is not synonymous with the concept of modern or contemporary Arnis, where it has become a full blown sport embraced by the Department of Education, although there are some similarities.

There was no formal program for Arnis from the s to s. Although some schools taught Arnis, these were not official nor prescribed. The Office of Senator Mercado was given the authority to designate the Arnis instructors for the said program.

The Arnis instructors designated by Senator Mercado were informally called the "Mercado boys". They were Mr. Jeremias V. Dela Cruz, Rodel Dagooc and others who were direct students of Mr.

Remy Presas of the Modern Arnis style. In this memorandum, there were two seminars conducted: October 6—11, in Baguio City and November 10—15, in General Santos City.

The Arnis Module Development however did not push through. Dela Cruz. Feliciano N. He met with the top NSA officials at that time; however, nothing happened.

Aniano Lota, Jr. And this was the start of the modern, contemporary and prevailing Arnis in the Department of Education.

In just two months, Arnis became part of the Palarong Pambansa National Games as a demonstration sport. The Palarong Pambansa was held in Naga City, Bicol Region with nine out of the seventeen regions of the Philippines participating.

National, regional and provincial Arnis Seminars were conducted by the tandem of Mr. Feliciano "Len" Toledo, and with the financial and logistical backing of the Department of Education.

In , Arnis was already a regular event in the Palarong Pambansa with all seventeen regions participating. Five weight divisions in the Full-contact Event and four categories in the Anyo Forms Event were played and became part of the official medal tally of the participants.

This was held in Coronadal in Mindanao. Arnis Seminars were continued in national, regional and provincial levels. These were all conducted by the tandem of Mr.

In , Arnis was played in the Palarong Pambansa and again, with all seventeen regions participating. All nine events were played.

This was held in Puerto Princesa City, Palawan. Aside from Sports Officiating and Accreditation seminars, Coaching and skill training seminars continued in national, regional and provincial levels.

Requests from cities and even districts were also welcomed. The "evangelization" of Arnis was continued and both Gialogo and Lota were careful not to teach their personal styles.

Both taught in "generic" form and focused on the rules of sports as promulgated by the Department of Education.

From the original five member teams, the number doubled with the inclusion of the girls. The medal tally also doubled from nine to eighteen.

Richardson Gialogo and Mr. Again, both secondary boys and girls competed in the eighteen categories. In the Palarong Pambansa, Elementary students joined.

One of the most important practices in classical Arnis was dueling, without any form of protection.

The matches were preceded by cock-fighting and could be held in any open space, sometimes in a specially constructed enclosure.

Arnisadores believe this tradition pre-dates the colonial period, pointing to similar practices of kickboxing matches in mainland Indochina as evidence.

Spanish records tell of such dueling areas where cock-fights took place. The founders of most of the popular Arnis systems were famous duelists and legends circulate about how many opponents they killed.

In rural areas throughout the Philippines today, modern Arnis matches are still held in dueling arenas. In bigger cities, recreations of duels are sometimes held at parks by local Arnis training-halls.

These demonstrations are not choreographed beforehand but neither are they full-contact competitions. In modern times, public dueling with blades has been deemed illegal in the Philippines due to high potential of severe injury or death.

Dueling with live sticks and minimal protection still occurs during barrio fiestas in some towns such as in Paete in Laguna. There are two main types of Arnis practised as a sport.

The WEKAF system works on a point must system similar to boxing where participants spar 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. This format has sometimes been criticized because it emphasizes a heavy offense at the expense of defensive techniques sometimes with players raining blows on each other without defending, giving rise to the impression that combatants are merely hitting each other in a disorganized way.

This has been tackled by introducing a "four second rule" [ clarification needed ] , to prevent constant and unrealistic attacks, and judges do not to score the same strike if the fighter uses it more than twice in succession.

Judges warn fighters and remove points if they continue after two warnings. However, fights can easily come down to an unrealistic attack from an unskilled fighter who impresses judges with many body hits after taking two or three clear, strong hits to the hands and head.

Moreover, participants have been known to suffer broken bones and injured tendons due to the fact that live sticks are used, so the older system is considered more 'hardcore' and less safe.

Another complaint about the WEKAF system is that it uses the point must system , which is more subjective depending on who is judging. Since the WEKAF system is more risky, it is preferred by many practitioners who want to test themselves.

Arnis competitions uses foam-padded sticks about an inch in diameter with thin rattan cores roughly a centimeter in diameter. These sticks are meant to break before serious injury occurs.

For protection, the same headgear used in the WEKAF system, and a large groin guard is required for males. Vests optional for men, required for women , optional armguards, shinguards and leg wraps are used.

Scoring is more similar to fencing where fighters are separated after solid clean hits are made observed by multiple judges stationed at different positions to observe if hits were clean and unblocked, and determine the strength of the strike by the loudness of the impact.

Alternative ways to score are to disarm one's opponent or to force him to step outside the ring. Stabs to the face are not allowed, because the thin rattan core may penetrate the padding and slip through the grills of the headgear into the player's eye.

Thrusts to the body score points, but are harder to present to judges for scoring because they make less noise and it is difficult to determine impact.

Punches, kicks and throws are not allowed. Prolonged clinching to prevent the opponent from striking is not allowed similar to Western Boxing to keep the game moving and more interesting for audience that may not appreciate the fine and practical aspects of grappling.

Disarms must be performed quickly and cleanly to count. Because the legs are fair targets, in lighter weight divisions, complex evasion and deep lunges where players lie horizontal with the torso almost touching the floor to extend reach are often seen.

The emphasis of the ARPI system is on player safety, as proponents are applying to become a recognized Olympic sport like judo , karate , taekwondo , wrestling , boxing , and fencing.

Even though padded sticks are used in the sport, players regularly retain large bruises that last for weeks and sometimes minor injuries to joints and because of the sheer amount of force generated by conditioned practitioners.

Sometimes the stuffing commonly comes off from the harder hitting players and one cause of injury is when a player is struck by the exposed rattan core.

Still, these are relatively minor as compared to injuries sustained when practitioners spar with live sticks. One major problem with the ARPI system is that because the padded sticks with light rattan cores are used, they tend to flex and "lag", thus making the experience significantly different from using a live stick and in that sense, lessens the "realism" of this system.

This is acceptable though as again, the emphasis is on safety. Aside from the visual appeal, practical combative applications must be clearly seen so as to avoid looking like just majorettes in marching bands who just twirl batons and dance a concept similar to the Floreio "flourish" aspect of Capoeira and to Tricking which are more for show than practicality.

In another variation that simulates knife fights, competitors use false blades edged with lipstick to mark where an opponent has been struck.

Arnis students start their instruction by learning to fight with weapons, and only advance to empty-hand training once the stick and knife techniques have been sufficiently mastered.

This is in contrast to most other well-known Asian martial arts but it is justified by the principle that bare-handed moves are acquired naturally through the same exercises as the weapon techniques, making muscle memory an important aspect of the teaching.

It is also based on the obvious fact that an armed person who is trained has the advantage over a trained unarmed person, and serves to condition students to fight against armed assailants.

Most systems of Arnis apply a single set of techniques for the stick, knife, and empty hands, a concept sometimes referred to as motion grouping.

Since the weapon is seen as simply an extension of the body, the same angles and footwork are used either with or without a weapon.

The reason for this is probably historical, because tribal warriors went into battle armed and only resorted to bare-handed fighting after losing their weapons.

Many systems begin training with two weapons, either a pair of sticks or a stick and a wooden knife. These styles emphasise keeping both hands full and never moving them in the same direction, and trains practitioners to become ambidextrous.

For example, one stick may strike the head while the other hits the arm. Such training develops the ability to use both limbs independently, a valuable skill, even when working with a single weapon.

A core concept and distinct feature of Filipino martial arts is the Live Hand. Even when as a practitioner wields only one weapon, the extra hand is used to control, trap or disarm an opponent's weapon and to aid in blocking, joint locking and manipulation of the opponent or other simultaneous motions such as bicep destruction with the live hand.

The most basic and common weapon in Arnis is the baston or yantok. They are typically constructed from rattan , an inexpensive stem from a type of Southeast Asian vine.

Hard and durable yet lightweight, it shreds only under the worst abuse and does not splinter like wood, making it a safer training tool. This aspect makes it useful in defense against blades.

Kamagong ironwood or ebony and bahi heart of the palm are sometimes used after being charred and hardened. These hardwoods are generally not used for sparring, however, as they are dense enough to cause serious injury, but traditional sparring does not include weapon to body contact.

The participants are skilled enough to parry and counterstrike, showing respect in not intentionally hitting the training partner.

In modern times, many Arnis practitioners have also come to wear head and hand protection while sparring with rattan sticks, or otherwise use padded bastons.

Some modern schools also use sticks made out of aluminium or other metals, or modern high-impact plastics. Baraw is a Cebuano term used in eskrima that means knife or dagger.

The term Baraw is more commonly used on the Cebu Island in the Visayan region whereas other islands and regions more commonly use the term Daga but both terms are often interchangeable within the Filipino martial arts community.

The terms Baraw and Daga can be used either as Solo Baraw or Solo Daga associated with single knife fighting and defense systems, Doble Baraw or Doble Daga associated with the double knife fighting systems or even with a combination of long and short weapons e.

The practitioners must conform to criteria based on the number of years of training and level of proficiency in technical skills. Practitioners are screened by the rank promotion committee to determine their rank in the grading system.

Most systems recognize that the technical nature of combat changes drastically as the distance between opponents changes, and generally classify the ranges into at least three categories.

Each range has its characteristic techniques and footwork. Of course, some systems place more emphasis on certain ranges than others, but almost all recognize that being able to work in and control any range is essential.

The Balintawak style for example, uses long-, medium- and short-range fighting techniques, but focuses on the short-range.

To control the range, and for numerous other purposes, good footwork is essential. Most eskrima systems explain their footwork in terms of triangles: normally when moving in any direction two feet occupy two corners of the triangle and the step is to the third corner such that no leg crosses the other at any time.

The shape and size of the triangle must be adapted to the particular situation. The style of footwork and the standing position vary greatly from school to school and from practitioner to practitioner.

For a very traditional school, conscious of battlefield necessities, stances are usually very low, often with one knee on the ground, and footwork is complex, involving many careful cross-steps to allow practitioners to cope with multiple opponents.

The Villabrille and San Miguel styles are usually taught in this way. Systems that have been adapted to duels or sporting matches generally employ simpler footwork, focusing on a single opponent.

North American schools tend to use much more upright stances, as this puts less stress on the legs, but there are some exceptions.

The theory behind this is that virtually all types of hand-to-hand attacks barehanded or with a weapon hit or reach a combatant via these angles of attack and the reasoning is that it is more efficient to learn to defend against different angles of attack rather than learn to defend against particular styles, particular techniques or particular weapons.

For instance, the technique for defending against an attack angle that comes overhead from the right is very similar whether the attacker uses bare fists, a knife, a sword or a spear.

Older styles gave each angle a name, but more recent systems tend to simply number them. Many systems have twelve standard angles, though some have as few as 5, and others as many as Although the exact angles, the order they are numbered in numerado , and the way the player executes moves vary from system to system, most are based upon Filipino cosmology.

These standard angles describe exercises. To aid memorization, player often practise a standard series of strikes from these angles, called an abecedario Spanish for "alphabet".

These are beginner strikes or the "ABC's" of Arnis. Arnis techniques are generally based on the assumption that both student and opponent are very highly trained and well prepared.

For this reason, Arnis tends to favor extreme caution, always considering the possibility of a failed technique or an unexpected knife. On the other hand, the practitioner is assumed able to strike precisely and quickly.

The general principle is that an opponent's ability to attack should be destroyed rather than trying to hurt them to convince them to stop.

Thus many strikes are aimed at the hands and arms, hoping to break the hand holding the weapon or cut the nerves or tendons controlling it the concept of defanging the snake , but strikes to the eyes and legs are also important.

A popular mnemonic states that "stick seeks bone, blade seeks flesh". Mano Mano is the empty-hand component of Filipino martial arts , particularly Arnis.

The term translates as "hands" or "hand to hand" and comes from the Spanish word mano hand. Mano mano also includes kicking , punching , locking, throwing and dumog grappling.

Filipino martial artists regard the empty hands as another weapon and all the movements of mano mano are directly based on weapon techniques.

The X Men Origins Wolverine of Senator Mercado was given the authority to designate the Arnis instructors for the said program. InArnis was played in the Palarong Pambansa and again, with all seventeen regions participating. Sibat Bangkaw, Budiak.

Filipino martial artists regard the empty hands as another weapon and all the movements of mano mano are directly based on weapon techniques.

In Arnis, weapons are seen as an extension of the body so training with weapons naturally leads to proficiency in bare-handed combat.

For this reason, mano mano is often taught in the higher levels of Arnis after weapons training has been mastered because advanced students are expected to be able to apply their experience with weapons to unarmed fighting.

This not always the case though, as some systems of Arnis start with and at times only consist of empty hands fighting. Paninipa , Pagsipa , Pananadiyak , Pagtadiyak , and Sikaran all terms for "kicking" in various regions, dialects and styles are components of eskrima that focus on knees, tripping, low-line kicks, and stomps.

Except for the distinct style of Sikaran from the Baras area of the province of Rizal , which also uses high kicks, kicking as a separate art is never taught by itself in the Philippines, and this practice is only done in the West with Pananjakman.

Pananjakman is usually taught together with Panantukan. Paninipa can be regarded as the study of leg muscles and bones and how they are connected, with the goal of either inflicting pain or outright breaking or dislocating the bones.

Most striking techniques involve applying pressure to bend the target areas in unnatural ways so as to injure or break them. Such pressure may be delivered in the form of a heel smash, a toe kick, a stomp, or a knee.

Targets include the groin, thighs, knees, shins, ankles, feet and toes. The upper body is used only for defensive maneuvers, making pananadiyak ideal for when combatants are engaged in a clinch.

When used effectively, the strikes can bring an opponent to the ground or otherwise end an altercation by making them too weak to stand.

Fundamental techniques include kicking or smashing the ankle to force it either towards or away from the opposite foot severe supination or pronation, respectively , heel-stomping the top of the foot where it meets the lower leg so as to break or crush the numerous bones or otherwise disrupt the opponent's balance, and smashing the opponents knee from the side to break the knee with severe supination and pronation as the desired result.

Several classes of exercises, such as sombrada , contrada , sinawali , hubud-lubud and sequidas , initially presented to the public as a set of organized drills by the Inosanto school, are expressly designed to allow partners to move quickly and experiment with variations while remaining safe.

For example, in a sumbrada drill, one partner feeds an attack, which the other counters, flowing into a counterattack, which is then countered, flowing into a counterattack, and so on.

The hubud-lubud or hubad-lubad from Doce Pares is frequently used as a type of "generator" drill, where one is forced to act and think fast.

Initially, students learn a specific series of attacks, counters, and counter-attacks. As they advance they can add minor variations, change the footwork, or switch to completely different attacks; eventually the exercise becomes almost completely free-form.

Palakaw, from the Balintawak style, are un-choreographed and random defensive and offensive moves. Palakaw in Cebuano means a walk-through or rehearsing the different strike angles and defenses.

It may be known as corridas , or striking without any order or pattern. Disarms, take-downs, and other techniques usually break the flow of such a drill, but they are usually initiated from such a sequence of movements to force the student to adapt to a variety of situations.

A common practice is to begin a drill with each student armed with two weapons. Once the drill is flowing, if a student sees an opportunity to disarm their opponent, they do, but the drill continues until both students are empty-handed.

Some drills use only a single weapon per pair, and the partners take turns disarming each other. Seguidas drills, taken from the San Miguel system, are sets of hitting and movement patterns usually involving stick and dagger.

Rhythm, while an essential part of eskrima drills, is emphasized more in the United States and Europe, where a regular beat serves a guide for students to follow.

To ensure safety, participants perform most drills at a constant pace, which they increase as they progress. Eskrima is usually practised in the Philippines without a rhythm, off-beat or out of rhythm.

The diversity of Filipino martial arts means that there is no officially established standard uniform in eskrima.

The live hand is the opposite hand of the practitioner that does not contain the main weapon. The heavy usage of the live hand is an important concept and distinguishing hallmark of eskrima.

Even or especially when empty, the live hand can be used as a companion weapon by eskrima practitioners. As opposed to most weapon systems like fencing where the off-hand is hidden and not used to prevent it from being hit, eskrima actively uses the live hand for trapping, locking, supporting weapon blocks, checking, disarming, striking and controlling the opponent.

The usage of the live hand is one of the most evident examples of how Eskrima's method of starting with weapons training leads to effective empty hand techniques.

Because of Doble Baston double weapons or Espada y Daga sword and parrying dagger ambidextrous weapon muscle memory conditioning, Eskrima practitioners find it easy to use the off-hand actively once they transition from using it with a weapon to an empty hand.

Doble baston , and less frequently doble olisi , are common names for a group of techniques involving two sticks. The art is more commonly known around the world as Sinawali meaning "to weave".

The term Sinawali is taken from a matting called sawali that is commonly used in the tribal Nipa Huts. It is made up of woven pieces of palm leaf and used for both flooring and walls.

This technique requires the user to use both left and right weapons in an equal manner; many co-ordination drills are used to help the practitioner become more ambidextrous.

It is the section of the art that is taught mainly at the intermediate levels and above and is considered one of the most important areas of learning in the art.

Sinawali refers to the activity of "weaving", as applied Eskrima with reference to a set of two-person, two-weapon exercises.

The term comes from "Sawali", the woven walls of nipa huts. Sinawali exercises provide eskrima practitioners with basic skills and motions relevant to a mode of two-weapon blocking and response method called Doblete.

It helps teach the novice eskrimador proper positioning while swinging a weapon. The Chinese and Malay communities of the Philippines have practiced eskrima together with Kuntaw and Silat for centuries, so much so that many North Americans mistakenly believe silat to have originated in the Philippines.

Some of the modern styles, particularly doce pares and Modern Arnis contain some elements of Japanese Martial Arts such as joint locks, throws, blocks, strikes, and groundwork, taken from: Jujutsu , Judo , Aikido and Karate as some of the founders obtained black belt Dan grades in some of these systems.

Some eskrima styles are complementary with Chinese Wing Chun , or Japanese aikido because of the nervous system conditioning and body mechanics when striking, twirling or swinging sticks.

In Western countries, it is common to practice eskrima in conjunction with other martial arts, particularly Wing Chun , [2] Jeet Kune Do and silat. As a result, there is some confusion between styles, systems, and lineage, because some people cross-train without giving due credit to the founders or principles of their arts.

Proponents of such training say the arts are very similar in many aspects and complement each other well. It has become marketable to offer eskrima classes in other traditional Asian martial arts studios in America but some practitioners of other eskrima styles often dismiss these lessons as debased versions of original training methods.

In the Philippines, Arnis is recognized as the country's national sport and martial art by virtue of Republic Act No. Because of this law, Arnis becomes a pre-requisite for P.

More than 4, students and athletes performed Arnis in the Cebu City Sports Center during the closing ceremonies of the Batang Pinoy , to set a record for the largest arnis class in the world for Guinness World Records.

It was said that to proclaim a student a "master" was considered ridiculous and a virtual death warrant as the individual would become challenged left and right to potentially lethal duels by other Arnisadores looking to make names for themselves.

Belt ranking was a recent addition adopted from Japanese arts such as Karate and Judo , which had become more popular with Filipinos. They were added to give structure to the systems, and to be able to compete for the attention of students.

With regards to its spread outside the Philippines, Arnis was brought to Hawaii and California as far back as the s by Filipino migrant workers.

Even then, instructors teaching Arnis in the s and 70s were often reprimanded by their elders for publicly teaching a part of their culture that had been preserved through secrecy.

He ran seminars with the help of other masters such as Maurice Novoa a Wing Chun instructor. In recent years, there has been increased interest in Arnis for its usefulness when defending against knives in street encounters.

As a result, many systems of Arnis have been modified in varying degrees to make them more marketable to a worldwide audience.

Usually this involves increased emphasis on locking, controls, and disarms, focusing mainly on aspects of self-defense.

However, most styles follow the philosophy that the best defense is a good offense. Modern training methods tend to de-emphasize careful footwork and low stances, stressing the learning of techniques in favor of more direct and often lethal tactics designed to instantly end an encounter.

Arnis was first introduced in to some public and private school teachers when Remy Presas taught his personal style of Arnis which he called " Modern Arnis ".

The style "Modern Arnis" is not synonymous with the concept of modern or contemporary Arnis, where it has become a full blown sport embraced by the Department of Education, although there are some similarities.

There was no formal program for Arnis from the s to s. Although some schools taught Arnis, these were not official nor prescribed.

The Office of Senator Mercado was given the authority to designate the Arnis instructors for the said program. The Arnis instructors designated by Senator Mercado were informally called the "Mercado boys".

They were Mr. Jeremias V. Dela Cruz, Rodel Dagooc and others who were direct students of Mr. Remy Presas of the Modern Arnis style. In this memorandum, there were two seminars conducted: October 6—11, in Baguio City and November 10—15, in General Santos City.

The Arnis Module Development however did not push through. Dela Cruz. Feliciano N. He met with the top NSA officials at that time; however, nothing happened.

Aniano Lota, Jr. And this was the start of the modern, contemporary and prevailing Arnis in the Department of Education.

In just two months, Arnis became part of the Palarong Pambansa National Games as a demonstration sport. The Palarong Pambansa was held in Naga City, Bicol Region with nine out of the seventeen regions of the Philippines participating.

National, regional and provincial Arnis Seminars were conducted by the tandem of Mr. Feliciano "Len" Toledo, and with the financial and logistical backing of the Department of Education.

In , Arnis was already a regular event in the Palarong Pambansa with all seventeen regions participating. Five weight divisions in the Full-contact Event and four categories in the Anyo Forms Event were played and became part of the official medal tally of the participants.

This was held in Coronadal in Mindanao. Arnis Seminars were continued in national, regional and provincial levels.

These were all conducted by the tandem of Mr. In , Arnis was played in the Palarong Pambansa and again, with all seventeen regions participating.

All nine events were played. This was held in Puerto Princesa City, Palawan. Aside from Sports Officiating and Accreditation seminars, Coaching and skill training seminars continued in national, regional and provincial levels.

Requests from cities and even districts were also welcomed. The "evangelization" of Arnis was continued and both Gialogo and Lota were careful not to teach their personal styles.

Both taught in "generic" form and focused on the rules of sports as promulgated by the Department of Education. From the original five member teams, the number doubled with the inclusion of the girls.

The medal tally also doubled from nine to eighteen. Richardson Gialogo and Mr. Again, both secondary boys and girls competed in the eighteen categories.

In the Palarong Pambansa, Elementary students joined. One of the most important practices in classical Arnis was dueling, without any form of protection.

The matches were preceded by cock-fighting and could be held in any open space, sometimes in a specially constructed enclosure.

Arnisadores believe this tradition pre-dates the colonial period, pointing to similar practices of kickboxing matches in mainland Indochina as evidence.

Spanish records tell of such dueling areas where cock-fights took place. The founders of most of the popular Arnis systems were famous duelists and legends circulate about how many opponents they killed.

In rural areas throughout the Philippines today, modern Arnis matches are still held in dueling arenas. In bigger cities, recreations of duels are sometimes held at parks by local Arnis training-halls.

These demonstrations are not choreographed beforehand but neither are they full-contact competitions. In modern times, public dueling with blades has been deemed illegal in the Philippines due to high potential of severe injury or death.

Dueling with live sticks and minimal protection still occurs during barrio fiestas in some towns such as in Paete in Laguna.

There are two main types of Arnis practised as a sport. The WEKAF system works on a point must system similar to boxing where participants spar 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. This format has sometimes been criticized because it emphasizes a heavy offense at the expense of defensive techniques sometimes with players raining blows on each other without defending, giving rise to the impression that combatants are merely hitting each other in a disorganized way.

This has been tackled by introducing a "four second rule" [ clarification needed ] , to prevent constant and unrealistic attacks, and judges do not to score the same strike if the fighter uses it more than twice in succession.

Judges warn fighters and remove points if they continue after two warnings. However, fights can easily come down to an unrealistic attack from an unskilled fighter who impresses judges with many body hits after taking two or three clear, strong hits to the hands and head.

Moreover, participants have been known to suffer broken bones and injured tendons due to the fact that live sticks are used, so the older system is considered more 'hardcore' and less safe.

Another complaint about the WEKAF system is that it uses the point must system , which is more subjective depending on who is judging.

Since the WEKAF system is more risky, it is preferred by many practitioners who want to test themselves. Arnis competitions uses foam-padded sticks about an inch in diameter with thin rattan cores roughly a centimeter in diameter.

These sticks are meant to break before serious injury occurs. For protection, the same headgear used in the WEKAF system, and a large groin guard is required for males.

Vests optional for men, required for women , optional armguards, shinguards and leg wraps are used. Scoring is more similar to fencing where fighters are separated after solid clean hits are made observed by multiple judges stationed at different positions to observe if hits were clean and unblocked, and determine the strength of the strike by the loudness of the impact.

Alternative ways to score are to disarm one's opponent or to force him to step outside the ring. Stabs to the face are not allowed, because the thin rattan core may penetrate the padding and slip through the grills of the headgear into the player's eye.

Thrusts to the body score points, but are harder to present to judges for scoring because they make less noise and it is difficult to determine impact.

Punches, kicks and throws are not allowed. Prolonged clinching to prevent the opponent from striking is not allowed similar to Western Boxing to keep the game moving and more interesting for audience that may not appreciate the fine and practical aspects of grappling.

Disarms must be performed quickly and cleanly to count. Because the legs are fair targets, in lighter weight divisions, complex evasion and deep lunges where players lie horizontal with the torso almost touching the floor to extend reach are often seen.

The emphasis of the ARPI system is on player safety, as proponents are applying to become a recognized Olympic sport like judo , karate , taekwondo , wrestling , boxing , and fencing.

Even though padded sticks are used in the sport, players regularly retain large bruises that last for weeks and sometimes minor injuries to joints and because of the sheer amount of force generated by conditioned practitioners.

Sometimes the stuffing commonly comes off from the harder hitting players and one cause of injury is when a player is struck by the exposed rattan core.

Still, these are relatively minor as compared to injuries sustained when practitioners spar with live sticks. One major problem with the ARPI system is that because the padded sticks with light rattan cores are used, they tend to flex and "lag", thus making the experience significantly different from using a live stick and in that sense, lessens the "realism" of this system.

This is acceptable though as again, the emphasis is on safety. Aside from the visual appeal, practical combative applications must be clearly seen so as to avoid looking like just majorettes in marching bands who just twirl batons and dance a concept similar to the Floreio "flourish" aspect of Capoeira and to Tricking which are more for show than practicality.

In another variation that simulates knife fights, competitors use false blades edged with lipstick to mark where an opponent has been struck.

Arnis students start their instruction by learning to fight with weapons, and only advance to empty-hand training once the stick and knife techniques have been sufficiently mastered.

This is in contrast to most other well-known Asian martial arts but it is justified by the principle that bare-handed moves are acquired naturally through the same exercises as the weapon techniques, making muscle memory an important aspect of the teaching.

It is also based on the obvious fact that an armed person who is trained has the advantage over a trained unarmed person, and serves to condition students to fight against armed assailants.

Most systems of Arnis apply a single set of techniques for the stick, knife, and empty hands, a concept sometimes referred to as motion grouping.

Since the weapon is seen as simply an extension of the body, the same angles and footwork are used either with or without a weapon.

The reason for this is probably historical, because tribal warriors went into battle armed and only resorted to bare-handed fighting after losing their weapons.

Many systems begin training with two weapons, either a pair of sticks or a stick and a wooden knife. These styles emphasise keeping both hands full and never moving them in the same direction, and trains practitioners to become ambidextrous.

For example, one stick may strike the head while the other hits the arm. Such training develops the ability to use both limbs independently, a valuable skill, even when working with a single weapon.

A core concept and distinct feature of Filipino martial arts is the Live Hand. Even when as a practitioner wields only one weapon, the extra hand is used to control, trap or disarm an opponent's weapon and to aid in blocking, joint locking and manipulation of the opponent or other simultaneous motions such as bicep destruction with the live hand.

The most basic and common weapon in Arnis is the baston or yantok. They are typically constructed from rattan , an inexpensive stem from a type of Southeast Asian vine.

Hard and durable yet lightweight, it shreds only under the worst abuse and does not splinter like wood, making it a safer training tool.

This aspect makes it useful in defense against blades. Kamagong ironwood or ebony and bahi heart of the palm are sometimes used after being charred and hardened.

These hardwoods are generally not used for sparring, however, as they are dense enough to cause serious injury, but traditional sparring does not include weapon to body contact.

The participants are skilled enough to parry and counterstrike, showing respect in not intentionally hitting the training partner.

In modern times, many Arnis practitioners have also come to wear head and hand protection while sparring with rattan sticks, or otherwise use padded bastons.

Some modern schools also use sticks made out of aluminium or other metals, or modern high-impact plastics. Baraw is a Cebuano term used in eskrima that means knife or dagger.

The term Baraw is more commonly used on the Cebu Island in the Visayan region whereas other islands and regions more commonly use the term Daga but both terms are often interchangeable within the Filipino martial arts community.

The terms Baraw and Daga can be used either as Solo Baraw or Solo Daga associated with single knife fighting and defense systems, Doble Baraw or Doble Daga associated with the double knife fighting systems or even with a combination of long and short weapons e.

The practitioners must conform to criteria based on the number of years of training and level of proficiency in technical skills.

Practitioners are screened by the rank promotion committee to determine their rank in the grading system. Most systems recognize that the technical nature of combat changes drastically as the distance between opponents changes, and generally classify the ranges into at least three categories.

Each range has its characteristic techniques and footwork. Of course, some systems place more emphasis on certain ranges than others, but almost all recognize that being able to work in and control any range is essential.

The Balintawak style for example, uses long-, medium- and short-range fighting techniques, but focuses on the short-range. To control the range, and for numerous other purposes, good footwork is essential.

Most eskrima systems explain their footwork in terms of triangles: normally when moving in any direction two feet occupy two corners of the triangle and the step is to the third corner such that no leg crosses the other at any time.

The shape and size of the triangle must be adapted to the particular situation. The style of footwork and the standing position vary greatly from school to school and from practitioner to practitioner.

For a very traditional school, conscious of battlefield necessities, stances are usually very low, often with one knee on the ground, and footwork is complex, involving many careful cross-steps to allow practitioners to cope with multiple opponents.

The Villabrille and San Miguel styles are usually taught in this way. Systems that have been adapted to duels or sporting matches generally employ simpler footwork, focusing on a single opponent.

North American schools tend to use much more upright stances, as this puts less stress on the legs, but there are some exceptions.

The theory behind this is that virtually all types of hand-to-hand attacks barehanded or with a weapon hit or reach a combatant via these angles of attack and the reasoning is that it is more efficient to learn to defend against different angles of attack rather than learn to defend against particular styles, particular techniques or particular weapons.

For instance, the technique for defending against an attack angle that comes overhead from the right is very similar whether the attacker uses bare fists, a knife, a sword or a spear.

Older styles gave each angle a name, but more recent systems tend to simply number them. Many systems have twelve standard angles, though some have as few as 5, and others as many as Although the exact angles, the order they are numbered in numerado , and the way the player executes moves vary from system to system, most are based upon Filipino cosmology.

These standard angles describe exercises. To aid memorization, player often practise a standard series of strikes from these angles, called an abecedario Spanish for "alphabet".

These are beginner strikes or the "ABC's" of Arnis. Arnis techniques are generally based on the assumption that both student and opponent are very highly trained and well prepared.

For this reason, Arnis tends to favor extreme caution, always considering the possibility of a failed technique or an unexpected knife.

On the other hand, the practitioner is assumed able to strike precisely and quickly. The general principle is that an opponent's ability to attack should be destroyed rather than trying to hurt them to convince them to stop.

Thus many strikes are aimed at the hands and arms, hoping to break the hand holding the weapon or cut the nerves or tendons controlling it the concept of defanging the snake , but strikes to the eyes and legs are also important.

A popular mnemonic states that "stick seeks bone, blade seeks flesh". Mano Mano is the empty-hand component of Filipino martial arts , particularly Arnis.

The term translates as "hands" or "hand to hand" and comes from the Spanish word mano hand. Mano mano also includes kicking , punching , locking, throwing and dumog grappling.

Filipino martial artists regard the empty hands as another weapon and all the movements of mano mano are directly based on weapon techniques.

In Arnis, weapons are seen as an extension of the body so training with weapons naturally leads to proficiency in bare-handed combat.

For this reason, mano mano is often taught in the higher levels of Arnis after weapons training has been mastered because advanced students are expected to be able to apply their experience with weapons to unarmed fighting.

This not always the case though, as some systems of Arnis start with and at times only consist of empty hands fighting.

Paninipa , Pagsipa , Pananadiyak , Pagtadiyak , and Sikaran all terms for "kicking" in various regions, dialects and styles are components of eskrima that focus on knees, tripping, low-line kicks, and stomps.

Except for the distinct style of Sikaran from the Baras area of the province of Rizal , which also uses high kicks, kicking as a separate art is never taught by itself in the Philippines, and this practice is only done in the West with Pananjakman.

Pananjakman is usually taught together with Panantukan. Paninipa can be regarded as the study of leg muscles and bones and how they are connected, with the goal of either inflicting pain or outright breaking or dislocating the bones.

Most striking techniques involve applying pressure to bend the target areas in unnatural ways so as to injure or break them. Such pressure may be delivered in the form of a heel smash, a toe kick, a stomp, or a knee.

Targets include the groin, thighs, knees, shins, ankles, feet and toes. The upper body is used only for defensive maneuvers, making pananadiyak ideal for when combatants are engaged in a clinch.

When used effectively, the strikes can bring an opponent to the ground or otherwise end an altercation by making them too weak to stand. Fundamental techniques include kicking or smashing the ankle to force it either towards or away from the opposite foot severe supination or pronation, respectively , heel-stomping the top of the foot where it meets the lower leg so as to break or crush the numerous bones or otherwise disrupt the opponent's balance, and smashing the opponents knee from the side to break the knee with severe supination and pronation as the desired result.

Several classes of exercises, such as sombrada , contrada , sinawali , hubud-lubud and sequidas , initially presented to the public as a set of organized drills by the Inosanto school, are expressly designed to allow partners to move quickly and experiment with variations while remaining safe.

For example, in a sumbrada drill, one partner feeds an attack, which the other counters, flowing into a counterattack, which is then countered, flowing into a counterattack, and so on.

The hubud-lubud or hubad-lubad from Doce Pares is frequently used as a type of "generator" drill, where one is forced to act and think fast. Initially, students learn a specific series of attacks, counters, and counter-attacks.

As they advance they can add minor variations, change the footwork, or switch to completely different attacks; eventually the exercise becomes almost completely free-form.

Palakaw, from the Balintawak style, are un-choreographed and random defensive and offensive moves.

Palakaw in Cebuano means a walk-through or rehearsing the different strike angles and defenses. It may be known as corridas , or striking without any order or pattern.

Disarms, take-downs, and other techniques usually break the flow of such a drill, but they are usually initiated from such a sequence of movements to force the student to adapt to a variety of situations.

A common practice is to begin a drill with each student armed with two weapons. Once the drill is flowing, if a student sees an opportunity to disarm their opponent, they do, but the drill continues until both students are empty-handed.

Some drills use only a single weapon per pair, and the partners take turns disarming each other. Seguidas drills, taken from the San Miguel system, are sets of hitting and movement patterns usually involving stick and dagger.

Rhythm, while an essential part of eskrima drills, is emphasized more in the United States and Europe, where a regular beat serves a guide for students to follow.

To ensure safety, participants perform most drills at a constant pace, which they increase as they progress. Eskrima is usually practised in the Philippines without a rhythm, off-beat or out of rhythm.

The diversity of Filipino martial arts means that there is no officially established standard uniform in eskrima. The live hand is the opposite hand of the practitioner that does not contain the main weapon.

The heavy usage of the live hand is an important concept and distinguishing hallmark of eskrima. Even or especially when empty, the live hand can be used as a companion weapon by eskrima practitioners.

As opposed to most weapon systems like fencing where the off-hand is hidden and not used to prevent it from being hit, eskrima actively uses the live hand for trapping, locking, supporting weapon blocks, checking, disarming, striking and controlling the opponent.

The usage of the live hand is one of the most evident examples of how Eskrima's method of starting with weapons training leads to effective empty hand techniques.

Because of Doble Baston double weapons or Espada y Daga sword and parrying dagger ambidextrous weapon muscle memory conditioning, Eskrima practitioners find it easy to use the off-hand actively once they transition from using it with a weapon to an empty hand.

Doble baston , and less frequently doble olisi , are common names for a group of techniques involving two sticks.

The art is more commonly known around the world as Sinawali meaning "to weave". The term Sinawali is taken from a matting called sawali that is commonly used in the tribal Nipa Huts.

It is made up of woven pieces of palm leaf and used for both flooring and walls. This technique requires the user to use both left and right weapons in an equal manner; many co-ordination drills are used to help the practitioner become more ambidextrous.

It is the section of the art that is taught mainly at the intermediate levels and above and is considered one of the most important areas of learning in the art.

Sinawali refers to the activity of "weaving", as applied Eskrima with reference to a set of two-person, two-weapon exercises.

The term comes from "Sawali", the woven walls of nipa huts. Sinawali exercises provide eskrima practitioners with basic skills and motions relevant to a mode of two-weapon blocking and response method called Doblete.

It helps teach the novice eskrimador proper positioning while swinging a weapon. The Chinese and Malay communities of the Philippines have practiced eskrima together with Kuntaw and Silat for centuries, so much so that many North Americans mistakenly believe silat to have originated in the Philippines.

Some of the modern styles, particularly doce pares and Modern Arnis contain some elements of Japanese Martial Arts such as joint locks, throws, blocks, strikes, and groundwork, taken from: Jujutsu , Judo , Aikido and Karate as some of the founders obtained black belt Dan grades in some of these systems.

Some eskrima styles are complementary with Chinese Wing Chun , or Japanese aikido because of the nervous system conditioning and body mechanics when striking, twirling or swinging sticks.

In Western countries, it is common to practice eskrima in conjunction with other martial arts, particularly Wing Chun , [2] Jeet Kune Do and silat.

As a result, there is some confusion between styles, systems, and lineage, because some people cross-train without giving due credit to the founders or principles of their arts.

Proponents of such training say the arts are very similar in many aspects and complement each other well. It has become marketable to offer eskrima classes in other traditional Asian martial arts studios in America but some practitioners of other eskrima styles often dismiss these lessons as debased versions of original training methods.

In the Philippines, Arnis is recognized as the country's national sport and martial art by virtue of Republic Act No.

Because of this law, Arnis becomes a pre-requisite for P. More than 4, students and athletes performed Arnis in the Cebu City Sports Center during the closing ceremonies of the Batang Pinoy , to set a record for the largest arnis class in the world for Guinness World Records.
