Filipino Martial Arts - Eskrima, Kali & Arnis


Cobra Martial Arts and Fitness Centres teach a separate, specialised course in the Filipino Martial Art of Eskrima, which is also known as Kali, Arnis or simply Stick Fighting. Eskrima is a weapons based martial arts system which can also be used without weapons, i.e. unarmed.

Although one of the most practical and deadliest martial arts in existence, the training is very low-impact and low intensity, so is suitable for the elderly and those who are prevented from participating in other more physically demanding martial arts due to injuries or disabilities.

Classes begin with a short, low-impact warm-up on-the-spot, using the Eskrima sticks. There are no running, jumping or high impact exercises or techniques. There are very few kicks and the ones used are mostly groin or knee height and very simple, yet practical and highly effective.


The classes teach self defence techniques with attention to defence and disarm to weapons attacks such as the baton (stick) and knife (dagger). You will also learn how to effectively use the stick, dagger and other weapons as well as how to apply the same techniques if you don't have a weapon and are attacked. Please note that safety weapons are used, made from wood, rubber or blunt aluminium.


The course is suitable for students of age of 12 years and above. Group and personal training is available.

Classes are held on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 6.15-7.15pm.
