Welcome

Welcome to Eskrima International’s official home on the World Wide Web.

Eskrima International was founded by Suro Emanuel Hart with the goal to preserve and propagate the Filipino Martial Art known as Inayan System III Eskrima.

Eskrima is a beautiful martial art that originated in the Philippines. What makes Eskrima different from other well-known martial arts, is that the students start training with weapons along with empty-hands from the beginning. Because of this interrelationship between weapons philosophy and empty-hand skills, Eskrima is widely recognized for its extreme practicality and effectiveness.

SPONTANEOUS ADAPTABILITY IS THE KEY TO A WARRIOR’S SURVIVAL.

Inayan System III Eskrima

Eskrima is a beautiful martial art that originated in the Philippines. It has a very long history of combat application and is a national sport taught in many parts of the Philippines today. What makes Eskrima different from other well known martial arts, is that the students start training with weapons along with empty-hands from the beginning. The idea behind this philosophy allows for flexibility of application depending on the situation. In most cases the concepts one learns with weaponry can be translated into empty-hand techniques. Because of this interrelationship between weapons philosophy and empty-hand skills, Eskrima is widely recognized for its extreme practicality and effectiveness.

Inayan System III Eskrima was founded by Suro Emanuel Hart and is a system that encompasses all 7 styles of Mangisursuro Michael G. Inay’s Inayan  Eskrima. This system centers around three core stylesInayan Kadena de Mano, Inayan Serrada, and Inayan Largo Mano. All of these styles are taught in their entirety and give the students the knowledge and skills to become accomplished practitioners.

IF YOU ARE GOING TO WAR, YOU TAKE A WEAPON. THEREFORE THIS (ESKRIMA) IS A TRUE MARTIAL ART.

The Styles

Within our system there are seven (7) styles of Eskrima that include three (3)*core styles, Inayan Kadena de Mano(short range), Inayan Serrada (medium range), and Inayan Largo Mano (long range). Each is taught in its whole form as a complete style.

kadena1

Kadena de Mano
Kadena De Mano translates to “chain of hand” and is a combination of empty-hand and knife/dagger techniques. It covers basic and advanced counters, basic and advanced hand and knife drills as well as permuted locks from the basic/advanced drills. Lock, flow, and trapping practice drills are stressed as well as subject control through the use of Pressure Sensitive Nerves Areas (PSNA).

serrada1

Inayan Serrada
Serrada translates to either “to close” or “close quarters”. The style is noted for using a shorter weapon, triangle footwork, and quick, linear, in-close fighting. This blade and stick style translates well into empty-hand applications and is the heart of IS3 Eskrima.

largo1

Inayan Largo Mano
Largo Mano translates to “long hand” and is a long-range system of Eskrima. Evolved to use a longer/heavier weapon (~40″) and to use the stick as if it were a Kampilan (Filipino long sword). This style is credited as being the first complete formal style to teach the use of the Kampilan.

sina

Inayan Sinawali
The theory of this stye of training can be employed at different ranges. The weapons can vary in length and can be inter-mixed. It is usually practiced with two weapons (sticks) of equal length. The Siniwali style is good for people who are starting out in the art of Eskrima since it is very easily taught to beginners. Although this style is easy to learn, it is not so easy to master.

deq

Inayan Dequerdas
Dequerdas is a medium range style of weaponry application that uses reinforced blocking with the off (or shield) hand supporting the weapon. It is a simple but effective method of defense that is easily taught and learned by students who do not have a lot of time to dedicate to the Filipino Martial Arts.

bankow1

Inayan Sibat/Bankow
The Inayan Sibat/Bankow style encompasses the long range method of fighting. This also means that these two styles use longer weapons than any of the other styles of Inayan Eskrima. Although block and counter techniques are used, the primary countering philosophy of these two styles is different from that of most shorter weapon styles.

espada1

Inayan Espada Y Dagga
This is a medium to close range style of Eskrima that focuses on an interrelationship between Sword and Dagger. This style is not recommended for beginners and is not seriously studied by IS3 students until they become proficient in the core styles of the system.

WHATEVER IS DRILLED IN DURING TRAINING COMES OUT THE OTHER END IN COMBAT - NO MORE, NO LESS. YOU DO NOT RISE TO THE OCCASION IN COMBAT, YOU SINK TO THE LEVEL OF YOUR TRAINING.
