I will be teaching you the art and science of Traditional Arnis.
Arnis is a piece of stick measuring from 26 to 30 inches long at about 1 to 1.5 inches in diameter use as a means of self-defense weapon of a Jendo Filipino martial arts practitioner. Arnis sticks can be pieces of woods that can be found in the Philippines called rattan, bahi, kamagong or yakal or yantok. Jendo martial arts practitioners sometimes call arnis as Baot or pang-or. It is an Ilocano word which means stick or to whip.
