Escrima (or Eskrima), also known as Arnis and Kali, is the national sport and martial art of the Philippines. The three names are roughly interchangeable umbrella terms for the traditional martial arts of the Philippines that emphasize weapon-based fighting with sticks, knives, bladed weapons and various improvised weapons. Most Escrima systems include fighting with a variety of both blunt and edged weapons, striking with hands and feet (suntukan, sikaran, and tadiyakan), grappling and throwing (dumog), biting --- all skills once needed to complete a warrior's training in the old days of tribal warfare.
