Arnis, commonly referred to as Kali or Eskrima, is a martial art with a focus on weapons that was created in the Philippines. It is one of the most varied Martial Arts available, incorporating open-hand methods as well as sticks (bastons), knives, bladed weapons, and flexible weapons like sarongs and even whips. Arnis stick fighting can be taught from an early age and helps practitioners build strength and hand-eye coordination.
