Join us for a dynamic and educational escrima seminar with Everest Pepper.
In this seminar, you will learn the principles and techniques of escrima, a traditional Filipino martial art that emphasizes the use of sticks and knives for self-defense.
Escrima, also known as Kali or Arnis, is a traditional martial art from the Philippines that emphasizes the use of sticks and knives for self-defense. It is a combat-oriented system that focuses on the efficient use of weapons and empty-hand techniques to defend against multiple attackers. Escrima training often includes drills and sparring with sticks, knives, and other improvised weapons, as well as training in hand-to-hand combat and grappling. In addition to its practical self-defense applications, escrima is also known for its cultural significance and spiritual aspects. It is often passed down within families and communities as a way to preserve and honor the cultural traditions of the Philippines.
Here are some things that will be covered in this seminar:
1. Stances: Escrima practitioners learn a variety of stances that allow them to move and respond effectively to different situations. These include the basic fighting stance, the horse stance, and the one-leg stance, among others.
2. Footwork: Escrima practitioners also focus on developing good footwork, which allows them to move quickly and fluidly while maintaining balance and control. This may include learning how to shuffle, slide, and pivot.
3. Blocking: Escrima practitioners learn a variety of blocking techniques that allow them to defend against attacks with sticks, knives, and other weapons. These may include parries, deflections, and counter-strikes.
4. Striking: Escrima practitioners also learn a range of striking techniques, including strikes with the hands, elbows, knees, and feet, as well as strikes with sticks and other weapons.
5. Drills: Escrima practitioners also engage in a variety of drills to develop their skills and reflexes, such as partner drills and solo drills.
6. Flow drills: Flow drills involve practicing a series of techniques in a flowing, continuous manner, allowing practitioners to develop their timing, distance, and footwork.
