Filipino Martial Arts Bristol

Eskrima, also known as Kali and Arnis is a martial art style that was created and developed within the Philippines. It is one of the most effective, adaptable and diverse martial arts systems in the world.

You may have even seen Filipino Martial Arts without realising it, as it is used extensively in movies such as the Bourne Identity, Book of Eli, Iron Man, and Total Recall. As well as Resident Evil and Star wars Episodes 1, 2 and 3.

The simple reason for this is that Filipino Martial Arts are effective. They have been battle tested through centuries of combat and have evolved and developed over the years to deal with modern threats.

At its heart, Eskrima is a weapons based martial art. It focuses primarily on the use and defence of the stick and the blade as well as incorporating advanced empty hand techniques to help defend against multiple opponents. It is one of the world’s most complete martial arts systems. Within a few months training you will literally be able to use anything as a weapon, from a magazine to a pen.

Cacoy Doce Pares Eskrima (CDP) is the style of Eskrima that we teach here at Masters Academy Bristol. It was developed by the living legend Supreme Grand Master Ciriaco “Cacoy” Canete. Cocoy Doce Pares Eskrima focuses primarily on the close range aspects of Eskrima. It works to deal a multiple of rapid strikes, disarms, throws and takedowns to an opponent within quick succession.
