ESCRIMA SW LONDON
Modern Escrima has evolved into a practical, realistic, self-defence martial art suited to the violent situations you may encounter today.
Escrima is a dynamic, complete martial art that utilises both weapons and empty handed combat. If you are interested in getting fit, learning something new or serious about learning skills to deal with a real confrontation, then Escrima is for you.
We begin training with a single stick, a simple, inexpensive, tool that is readily available. This training lays the foundations of the body mechanics required to use all weapons and also enables you to utilise everyday objects, such as a pen or mobile phone, into effective weapons. This also transfers to all aspects of unarmed combat. Escrima uses only techniques that work and are instinctive.
Most Importantly classes are relaxed and fun.
