Orders over $50. Details
These rattan sticks are 26" long and come burnt or plain. Rattan is a species of mayalsian palm. Rattan is well known for it's lightness and it's overall strength. Rattan is perfect for the escrima. Rattan is strong, compared to exotic woods like bahi and kamagong, and is far less dense. It's lightweight makes it fast. It toughness speaks for itself. Our rattan sticks are top of the line and made to perform hard. They will take a beating.
Many of our customers are not arnis escrima practitioners at all, but purchase our rattan sticks and hardwood escrima sticks to integrate stick fighting or knife fighting into their own martial arts weapons program.
Escrima sticks come from the Eskrima, Arnis and Kali which refers to a class of Filipino martial arts that emphasize weapon-based fighting with sticks, blades and improvised weapons.
The teaching of the basic skills in Eskrima are traditionally simplified. With limited time to teach intricate moves, only techniques that were proven effective in battle and could easily be taught en masse were used. This allowed villagers, generally not professional soldiers, a measure of protection against other villages, as well as foreign invaders. This philosophy of simplicity is still used today and is the underlying base of escrima. Because of this approach, escrima and the Filipino martial arts in general are often mistakenly considered to be "simple". However, this refers only to its systematization, not effectiveness. To the contrary, beyond the basic skills lies a very complex structure and a refined skillset that takes years to master.
We find that martial arts from all over the world use some sort of fighting sticks in their training, if not just to utilize them as short range weapons, to use them to train students against martial arts weapons attacks.
