Hi! I’m Calab Labarda of Tae Kwon Do Unlimited

we’re talking about the escrima, also known as a Filipino fighting stick. This stick right
here I have with me is about little over 24 inches and 1 inch in diameter. It’s a very
strong stick. It will not break. These you can carry anywhere, like the commas, nun-chucks
or carrying a sword around. This is more of a modern day weapon that you can use. It’s
great for both offensive and defensive. You can do a lot of blocks, roll rounds, back
right into a strike. Then for offensive, it’s good for attacking forward hits…going around.
You can do a lot of similar moves that you do with a sword or a bow staff, but it’s
little shorter and little quicker and it won’t really cut somebody in half, it will just
disable them really good. You can do a lot of good self defense moves. You can come around
and get somebody in the neck and twist. You can do a lot of good stabs and pokes. It’s
great for leg hits. That’s pretty much your escrima, also known as your Filipino fighting
stick. They’re good practice, and you can do a lot of cool spins with them for good
throws, go around, and that is about it.
