Escrima, also called Kali, is similar to sword fighting but using two short wooden staffs. Anyone with any strength level can train with these weapons, they are light weight, and easy to maneuver. Escrima uses a variety of hard and soft techniques allowing students to magnify their skills in every element of karate.
Escrima sticks come in a variety of styles and colors. Some sticks are designed to be used for demonstrating, practicing, and training. Make sure that you purchase the correct type of stick for your needs. Remember, the quality of the weapon will dictate the lifetime of weapons; cheaper sticks tend to wear out and break more often than those of high quality.
