Escrima Training

kung fu schools hastings online, online members, kung fu online training, hastings online kung fu

This is a collection of the national martial art of the Philippines called Escrima/Eskrima (Fencing) training videos is so that students can use them to continue practising at home. The videos complement the techniques covered in our weekly classes and we will endeavour to update this section with future tutorial videos. We have recorded many techniques as solo drills as well as showing them with a partner to demonstrate their practical applications. We always advise that you warm up first, then practice a technique a number of times before moving onto another one. Please keep in mind that PERSEVERANCE and REPETITIVE PRACTICE is key. If you have any questions on these techniques shown or any others please get in touch with us.
