  • Eskrima, Arnis and Kali are umbrella terms for the traditional martial arts of the Philippines that emphasize weapon-based fighting with sticks, knives and other bladed weapons, and various improvised weapons.
    • Arnis comes from "arnés", Old Spanish for "armor" (used mainly for "harness" nowadays). It is derived from the armor costumes used in Moro-moro stage plays where actors fought mock battles using wooden swords.
