The Very First Dacayana Eskrima School in Gloucestershire


Eskrima is a term for the indigenous Martial Arts of the Philippines. Eskrima is also known by the names of Escrima, Kali, Arnis or Arnis de Mano.

Different schools use their own terminology for their style which varies from region to region. In the USA for example, Kali is widely accepted as the “Mother Art” (mainly due to the influence of Guro Dan Inosanto) but in the Philippines it is more usually Eskrima or Arnis that is seen as the correct name to describe Filipino Martial Arts (FMA).
