Eskrima for Children

Eskrima Training for Children Of the many activities available for children Martial Arts can be one of the premium choices. As an extracurricular activity, some of it’s benefits is that Martial Arts and Self Defense training is not subject to seasonal scheduling and focuses on each individual child’s development. Martial Arts is also a very good example of goal oriented training, with a well established reward system. This is extremely important to children while they develop into well rounded and well adjusted people.

Traditional Martial Arts Ineffective?

There is a lot of information out on the Internet as well as in print regarding the supremacy of one art or method of training over another. So much in fact it is hard to know what is right, what is misinformation and what is disinformation. Though the question of which style is better is an old debate in the Martial Arts community, there is some credence to the statement that Traditional Martial Arts’ approach is ineffective. So what is the best art to train in? Karate, Kung Fu, Eskrima, or some other style? And, if one style or way is better, why is it better?

Winter Wonderland

This last week in London has been great. I have had the opportunity to share the Inayan System of Eskrima with a lot of new people as well as expose them to the Self Defense nature of Escrima. Filipino Martial Arts is a hugely varied form of martial art, here in London the Inayan Kadena De Mano style is highly relevant to assault and crime here in London and the UK in general.

It's Fundamental

Recently I have been turning a sharper focus back on my basics. The Inayan System of Eskrima is comprised of many elements, chief among those are a set of basic exercises for each of the styles or methods in the system. My father, Mangisursuro Mike Inay, once was quoted as saying "Basics are like brushing your teeth, you should do them at least twice a day."

Flexible Weapons in Oneida Wisconsin

Had the honor of teaching a flexible weapon seminar tonight at Oneida/Green Bay hosted by Master Schoenebeck here in Wisconsin. Was a great deal of fun to present some new ideas and material to this great group of Eskrimadors.

It is a requirement to have a proficiency in flexible and semi-flexible weapons prior to becoming a Guro in the Inayan System of Eskrima per my Dad, Mangisursuro Mike Inay.

Summer Training

This summer has been great for training, both abroad and in the U.S. I have had the chance to raise my fitness level and conditioning during the FightClasses as well as sharpen my fighting skills too. The seminars this summer have been great fun, and have opened my horizons further in regards to my training and seminar material. My participation in Tournaments has added a richness to my training and perspective on training.

Germany 2010 Summer Inayan EskrimaTraining

This visit to Germany has been an exercise in advancement and evaluation as well as some very intense training. We trained about 30 hours over 6 days. In this time we have covered the full spectrum of the Inayan System of Eskrima, as founded by Mike Inay. As a legacy to Great Grand Master Mike Inay, the "Aix-la-Chappelle" group in Aachen have trained diligently and with dedication amidst many challenges.
