Learn Filipino Martial Arts

Learn Practical Self-Defense Would you like to learn a martial art that is practical for self-defense, and street fighting? Are traditional martial arts, and elements of MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) fine-tuned for practical purposes important to you? If so, then you should be asking yourself, would you like to learn Eskrima? Also known as Kali, Arnis, Arnis De Mano, as well as many other names, Filipino Martial Arts is both a traditional MMA and a practical means of self-defense suited to modern times. Those who, decide to learn Inayan Eskrima have chosen a systemized and practical approach to modern self-defense scenarios. Emphasis on a mind set for the martial artist relative to hand vs. hand and hand vs. weapon as well as weapon vs. weapon is essential for the myriad needs of the modern martial art student, you. At the outset of training in the Inayan System of Eskrima, with Suro Jason Inay and the Inayan Inner-Circle Guros, basic self-defense is first addressed. “Our first priority is to provide the physical tools to be confident in typical self-defense situations”, says Suro Inay. Basic and typical attacks delivered with both hands and feet are the subject of the first lessons in learning this Arnis method founded in Los Gatos, Ca. After a sense of how one can easily and comfortably negate attacks by street thugs and brawlers, a deeper look at ideal physical mechanics in relation to physical combat is begun. Part and parcel to this process is techniques and tactics used to prevent further assault from an assailant. “When someone attacks you, you will come to understand the weakness inherent with such action, and thereby be empowered by learning Eskrima from the Inay family.” Attacks from armed and unarmed attackers are dealt with in a practical manner, without needless embellishment and flash. Simple brass tacks are what is valued in a bar fight or street fight context. As you train with us in this form of Kali, Escrima, Arnis, day-by-day you will also gain the necessary mental focus and fighting spirit to prevail in all forms of conflict and risk. Finding advantage and pressing it, managing risk, and resolving conflict is the warrior way of the Inay Family System of Martial Art, (Inayan System of Eskrima). Coupled with this is a traditional approach to combat psychology and learning psychology native to Filipino Martial Culture. Watching a class, you will see stick vs. stick styles of Eskrima, hand tactics, and grappling exercises. Participants experience a wide spectrum of self-confidence building situations in class. Punches are parried, kicks deftly avoided, weapons disarmed in a class of the Inayan System of Eskrima. © Jason Inay 2009
