Filipino Martialarts Arnis/Kali/Escrima Class

Arnis/Kali/Eskrima ※1

Using two sticks, it is a great way to exercise your body and train your brain at the same time. It is a slightly unusual type of martial art. It can be enjoyed as a sport or as a self-defense technique, depending on the purpose of the person doing it.

※ 1 “Arnis/Kali/Eskrima” are all the same thing with different names.

The action movie you saw the other night…could that be Arnis?

Arnis has been used not only in Hollywood movies, but also in Japanese movies such as “SP THE MOTION PICTURE” and dramas such as “CRISIS” etc…

Introduced in the TV program “Moya Moya Summers 2”.

Arnis Club Tokyo is a Tokyo-based organization that teaches the Filipino martial art of Arnis/Kali/Eskrima.

Our Association has been featured in various magazines, including the “Hiden Magazine” and “Shukan Asahi,” and TV Tokyo’s “Moya Moya Sammers 2” will air on September 15, 2019, under the title “Around Shimokitazawa – Eh! How much has changed with the redevelopment? ~” was also featured in the program.

Arnis/Kali/Eskrima school

Just as there are various schools of kenjutsu in Japan, there are various schools of arnis, a Filipino martial art. At Arnis Club Tokyo, we practice modern arnis, which has been developed for modern use, and belongs to a school called “Redonda Arnis”.

    Complex techniques are organized in a systematic manner, allowing for rapid progress at the pace of the individual.

    Currently, at Arnis Club Tokyo, you can also learn the ancient swordsmanship style “Abanico Tres Puntas” and the super close combat style “Balintawak”.

Fun practice at overseas resorts

Although canceled in 2019 due to the Corona, the biennial world-class competition “FMA Festival*2” will be held in the Philippines.

Here, esclimadores (arnis users) not only from the Philippines but from all over the world gather to exchange not only techniques but also various other cultures.

 As one of your new hobbies or lessons.

Arnis works well for the brain anyway. It is quite understandable that arnis has been adopted in physical education in the Philippines. Yet, in Japan, it is still not very well known and not many people are doing it. It would be a shame if people don’t try it, despite the fact that it is such an excellent system.

In the U.S., the name “Kali” is well known, and the number of people who practice arnis is increasing year by year. I am sure that one day it will become popular in Japan as well, so why don’t you try it as a new hobby or a new way to learn?
