Our current leadership skill/weapons we are working on are the Escrima sticks.
Escrima is the national Martial Art of the Philippines and is practiced as a sport there. It's origins date back to the 1500s where it is believed that Spanish, Indonesian and Indian travelers had picked up the art and it influenced some of the other martial arts styles prevalent in other countries. Escrima is also known as Kali or Arnis depending on where you are studying but the art is still the same. Traditionally Escrima is practiced with sticks, bladed weapons and practical empty hand application is also taught. Typically the art also has joint locks, hand to hand combat techniques and weapon disarming involved in learning the style as a whole. Practicing Escrima is great for hand-eye coordination as well as coordination throughout the entire body, physical fitness, self defense and is fun for team building. It's never too late to pick up a pair of Escrima sticks and start learning!
