Eskrima Stick Fighting Filipinos Art
Eskrima is a martial art that was brought to the U.S. by Filipinos and is believed to date back to 1521 when the Spanish began to colonize the Philippine Islands. It was a tradition handed down from generation to generation, differing from region to region. Although Eskrima was a traditional recreational activity, the Spaniards eventually banned the study and practice of the martial art. However, when the U.S. took over in 1898, the ban was lifted.
