Why train with Escrima Concepts?
We teach an exciting martial art for adults, that uses weapons, unarmed and more. Escrima Concepts is an international organisation with clubs across the UK and Europe.
Don’t worry if you have never done any kind of martial art before, we have friendly patient instructors who will teach you from scratch.
If you are already an experienced martial artist and looking for a new challenge, we would love to see you too. We welcome anyone who is willing to learn and train.
Do you need to be fit to start Escrima Concepts?
Not at all, but you will get “fighting fit” as a result of training with us. Instead of making you do hundreds of push-ups, or punching a bag for hours on end, we get you training with a partner from day one, and you will gain a practical working fitness from the movement. Your balance and co-ordination will also improve as a result.
Why train with weapons?
You may ask why you need to train with weapons at all, since you don’t carry weapons on you.
While you might be a law abiding citizen, that doesn’t mean everyone else is. Weapons can be concealed in clothing or bags, and they can be improvised from everyday objects. If someone picks up a bottle, a phone, or a pocket torch, that object becomes a weapon.
Weapons are all around us, and the best chance of defending yourself against them is to understand how to use them.
We’ll show you what works, and what doesn’t, and highlight the common mistakes that are made with weapons defence.
Training with weapons also improves your strength, timing, and co-ordination, making you stronger, faster, and fitter, and we show you how the body mechanics behind the weapons transition to the unarmed, enhancing your abilities and making you more powerful unarmed and empty handed.
Aren’t weapons dangerous?
Safety is our top priority and as a beginner we will teach you the basics of movement, structure and footwork, with no speed or power, and as time goes on, you will progress in your training in a controlled method without injuring yourself or your training partner.
