No eskrima without fighting.
But before starting the fight with rattan sticks in Arnis eskrima,
a working phase with foam-covered rattan sticks
may be necessary.
In order to acquire the right body mechanics, to develop
the ability to read the lines of keystrokes, not to leave hands within reach....
but also to make beginners work,
people who are not used to fighting
or to keep a playful spirit in the exchange!
