Filipino Martial Arts (FMA) is one of the more famous styles of knife fighting. FMA incorporates three umbrella terms, “Escrima, Kali and Arnis”. Some will try to argue that one is better than the other but essentially they are all the same thing. A style of fighting that encompasses swords, sticks, knives and empty-hands.

The principles and techniques taught during this workshop enhances flow and movement using Filipino Martial Arts flow drills and partner drills. A Certificate of Participation will be earned at the end of this three hour workshop.

This workshop is part of our "Knife Self Defense Instructor Certification". Those who already completed their Level 1 Instructor Certification will need this workshop as they continue on to the level 2 Instructor Certification.
