My guys train with blood,sweat, and tears!!!
Rattans / Eskrima sticks: weapons we start off with and progress to blade/edge weapon and then empty hand. Notice weapons first and then empty hand!!
Bolo or machete is just one of our bladed/edge weapon. I prefer the bolo! It's what I grew up with.
The rattan and bolo are crossed together to represent our school and style: Kuntaw Kali Kruzada (Kuntawkali.com).
