[STICK, KNIFE, AND EMPTY-HAND FIGHTING]
Arnis, sometimes called Escrima or Kali, is an ecclectic martial art from the Philippines.
Arnis can be a valued complement and balance to other disciplines. Many American Arnis practitioners have backgrounds in (or are curently practicing) other martial arts. Arnis at Shodokan is heavily influenced by the Japanese arts at our dojo and the many years spent by many of our members practicing Japanese martial arts.
We emphasize defenseive, non aggressive techniques and cooperation with one another as we learn and practice.
Despite our frequent use of one or two sticks, we are always working toward empty-handed techniques.
The stick is merely the extension of the hand, the arm, the body, and of course, the spirit.
We are always interested in acquiring new practitioners and know that you will be able to use the discipline and skills you have acquired at Shodokan or another dojo to help you learn and practice Arnis.
We invite you to join us and look forward to your attendance.
Attendance by non-Shodokan practitioners requires a $50 per month fee.
Members of the Shodokan organization may attend classes for a fee of $10 per month, but must have permission of their instructors.
