Eskrima is famous for its practice of dealing with weapons early-on during one’s training. This philosophical principle sprang up from practical needs of the past – villagers had to learn self-defence techniques in short periods of time. Most Eskrima styles follow the principle that the best defence is a good offense. They also emphasise good footwork, concentration and being one with the weapon.
