About Lightning Scientific Arnis Israel

phil_map2.jpgEscrima/Kali/Arnis are all the same names for the indigenous fighting arts of the Philippines.  The Filipino Martial Arts (FMA) are composed of fighting techniques that involve the use of weapons such as: swords, knives, sticks and empty hand. Filipino martial arts developed as early as Filipinos struggled against nature, wild animals and their fellow men. The Philippine archipelago is composed of 7107 Islands and is well situated in south east Asia and has always been sought after because of it’s strategic location for trade, commerce and war. This is why Filipino martial arts are rich and varied because of it’s interactions with various cultures, friendly and hostile.

The Islands of the Philippines are rich in natural resources desired by many. Because of the need to defend themselves against neighboring hostile tribes, invaders and oppressors, the natives of these Islands developed systems of fighting, according to their needs. These systems are the roots of the many different styles of Filipino martial arts, unique to each region.
