Arnisalso known as Ee or Eskrimais the national sport and martial art of the Philippines. The three are roughly interchangeable umbrella terms for the traditional martial arts of the Philippines ” Filipino Martial Arts “, or Msno that emphasize weapon-based fighting with sticksknivesbladed weaponsand various improvised weapons as well as “open hand” or techniques without weapons.
In Luzon it may go by the name of Arnis de Mano.
The indigenous martial art that the Spanish encountered in was not yet called “Eskrima” at that time.
During those times, this martial art was known as Paccalicali-t to the Ibanags Didya later changed to Kabaroan to the IlokanosSitbatan or Kalirongan to PangasinensesSinawali “to weave” to the KapampangansCalis or Pananandata “use of weapons” to the TagalogsPagaradman to the Ilonggos and Kaliradman to the Cebuanos. Kuntaw and Silat are separate martial arts that are also practiced in the Philippine Archipelago.
Arnis also includes hand-to-hand combatjoint locksgrappling and weapon disarming techniques. Although in general, emphasis is put on weapons for these arts, some systems put empty hands as the primary focus and some old school systems do not teach weapons at all. For all intents and purposes, arnis, eskrima and kali all refer to the same family of Filipino weapon-based martial arts and fighting systems. Both Arnis and Eskrima are loans from Spanish:. The execution of this doctrine is so infallible, that not only does it prove its superiority in contests with equal arms, but also when finding the opponent with the apparent advantage of showing up armed with two weapons, sword and dagger.
For, even armed with those, experience shows the difficulty of resisting the single sword used in this way Practitioners of the arts are called arnisador male, plural arnisadores and arnisadora female, plural arnisadoras for those who call theirs arniseskrimador male, plural eskrimadores or eskrimadora female, plural eskrimadoras for those who call their art eskrimaand kalista or mangangali for those who practice kali.
As Arnis was an art usually practiced by the peasant or commoner class as opposed to nobility or warrior classesmost practitioners lacked the scholarly education to create any kind of written record.
While the same can be said of many martial arts, this is especially true for Arnis because almost all of its history is anecdotal, oral or promotional. The origin of Arnis can be traced back to native fighting techniques during conflicts among the various Prehispanic Filipino tribes or kingdomsthough the current form has Spanish influence from old fencing which originated in Spain in the 15th century.
It has other influences as well, as settlers and traders travelling through the Malay Archipelago brought the influence of silat as well as ChineseArab, and Indian martial arts. It has also been theorized that the Filipino art of Arnis may have roots in India and came to the Philippines via people who traveled through Indonesia and Malaysia to the Philippine islands.

When the Spaniards first arrived in arnls Philippines, they already observed weapons-based martial arts practiced by the natives, which may or may not be related to present-day Arnis.
The earliest written records of Filipino culture and life, including martial arts, come from the first Spanish explorers. Some early expeditions fought native tribesmen armed with sticks and knives.
Some Arnisadors hold that Lapu-Lapu’s men killed Magellan in a sword-fight, though historical evidence proves otherwise.
Arnis – Wikipedia
The only eyewitness account of the battle by chronicler, Antonio Pigafettaaris that Magellan was stabbed in the face and the ce with spears and overwhelmed by multiple warriors who hacked and stabbed at him:.
The natives continued to pursue us, and picking up the same mzno four or six times, hurled it at us again and again. Recognizing the captain, so many turned upon him that they knocked his helmet off his head twice, but he always stood firmly like a good knight, together with some others. Thus did we fight for more than one hour, refusing to retire farther. An Indian hurled a bamboo spear into the captain’s facebut the latter immediately killed him with his lance, which he left in the Indian’s body.
Then, trying to lay hand on sword, he could draw it out but halfway, because he had been wounded in the arm with a bamboo spear. When the natives saw that, they all hurled themselves upon him. One of them wounded him on the left qrnis with a large cutlass, mwno resembles a scimitar, only being larger. That caused the captain to fall face downward, when immediately they rushed upon him with iron and bamboo spears and with their cutlasses, until they killed our mirror, our light, our comfort, and our true guide.
When they wounded him, he turned back many times to see whether we were all in the boats. Thereupon, beholding him dead, we, wounded, retreated, as best we could, to the boats, which were already pulling off.

Due to the conflict-ridden nature of the Philippine archipelago, where port-kingdoms were often at war with one another or raiding each otherwarriors were forged in the many wars in the islands, thus during dee precolonial era, the geographical area acquired a reputation for its capable mercenaries, which were soon employed all across Southeast Asia.
At the same time, Lusung warriors fought alongside the Siamese king and faced the same elephant army of the Burmese king in the defense of the Siamese capital at Ayuthaya.
Pinto noted that there were a number of them in the Islamic fleets that went to battle with the Portuguese in the Philippines during the 16th century. Pinto also says one was named leader of the Malays remaining in the Moluccas Islands after the Portuguese conquest in Opinions differ on the degree to which Spanish rule in the Philippines affected Arnis.
Some argue though that Spanish names in the martial art simply reflect the fact that Spanish was the lingua franca of the Philippines until the early 20th century, and that actual Spanish martial influence was qrnis.
What is certain is that the Spaniards brought with them and used their bladed weapon arts including the system of Destreza developed by Carranza when they started colonizing the archipelago in the 16th century. What is also known is that the Spaniards recruited soldiers from Mexico  and Peru  and sent them to fortify the Philippines and they had also trained mercenaries and warriors from local people like the PangasinensesKapampangansTagalogsIlonggosCebuanos and Warays to pacify regions and wrnis down revolts.
And it was all the worse because these people had been trained in the military art in our own schools in the presidios fortified outposts of TernateZamboangaJoloCaraga and other places where their valor was well known; but this needs the help of ours, and so they say that a Spaniard plus three Pampangos equal four Spaniards.
Logic dictates that these native warriors and foreign soldiers would have passed on to very close friends and family members these newly learned skills to augment already existing and effective local ones. They would have also shared tactics and techniques with each other when placed in the same military group and fighting on the same side in foreign regions such as FormosaMindanaothe Moluccas  and the Marianas.
One of the more prominent features of Arnis that point to possible Spanish influence is the Espada y Daga Spanish for “sword and dagger” method, a term also used in Spanish fencing. Filipino espada y daga differs somewhat from European rapier and dagger techniques; the stances are different as weapons used in Arnis are typically shorter than European srnis. After the Spanish colonized the Philippines, a decree was set that prohibited civilians from carrying full-sized swords such as the Kris and the Kampilan.
Despite this, the practitioners found ways to maintain and keep the arts alive, arnix sticks made out of rattan rather than swords, as well as small knives wielded like swords. Some of the arts were passed down from one generation to anis other. Sometimes the art took the form choreographed dances such as the Sakuting stick dance  or during mock battles at Moro-moro Moros y Cristianos stage plays.
Also as a result, a unique and complex stick-based technique evolved in the Visayas and Luzon regions. The southern Mindanao retains almost exclusively blade-oriented techniques, as the Spaniards and Americans never fully conquered the southern parts of this island. Although Arnis combines native fighting techniques with old Spanish fencing and other influences, a degree of systematization was achieved over time, resulting in a distinguishable Philippine martial art. With time, a system for the teaching of the basics also evolved.
However, with the exception of a few older and more established systems, arjis was previously common to pass the art from generation to generation in an informal approach. This has made attempts to trace the lineage of a practitioner difficult. For example, aside from learning from their family members like his uncle Regino Ilustrisimo, Antonio Ilustrisimo seemed to have learned to fight while sailing around atnis Philippines, while his cousin and student Floro Villabrille claimed to have been also taught by a blind Moro princess in the mountains; a claim later refuted by the older Ilustrisimo.
Both arnks since died. The Philippines has what is known as a blade culture. Local folk in the Philippines are much more likely to carry knives than guns.
They are commonly carried as tools by farmers, used by street vendors to prepare coconuts, pineapples, watermelons, other fruits and meats, and balisongs are cheap to procure in the streets as well as being easily concealed. In fact, in some areas in the countryside, carrying a farming knife like the itak or bolo was a sign that one was making a living because of the nature of work in those areas.
Contrary to the view of some modern historians that it was only guns that won the Philippine revolutionaries against the Spaniardsblades also played a large part. The Philippine native, like all the kindred Malay races, cannot do any fighting as a rule except at close quarters, slashing with his heavy knife.
The weapon is called machete, or bolo, or kampilan, or parang, or kris. The Mauser rifle, too, in hard work is found to be a mistake.
It has a case of five cartridges, which have to be all used before any others can be inserted. That is, to say, if a soldier has occasion to fire three cartridges he must go on and waste the other two, or else leave himself to meet a possible sudden rush with only wrnis rounds in his rifle.
Perhaps it may be the fault of the men, or their misfortune in being undrilled, but they are often knifed while in the act of reloading their rifles.
Whatever be the explanation there is something wrong in troops with rifles and bayonets being driven steadily back by natives armed with knives. The insurgents have some guns, but most of the wounded Spanish soldiers seen in the streets have knife wounds.
That and similar events led to the request and the development of the Colt M pistol and the. The arts had no traditional belting or grading systems as they were taught informally. It was said that to proclaim a student a “master” was considered ridiculous and a virtual death warrant as the individual would become challenged left and right to potentially lethal duels by other Arnisadores looking to make names for themselves.
Belt ranking was a recent addition adopted from Japanese arts such as Karate and Judowhich had become more popular with Filipinos. They were added to give structure to the systems, and to be able to compete for the attention of students.
With regards to its spread outside the Philippines, Arnis was brought to Hawaii and California as far back as the s by Filipino migrant workers.
Even then, instructors teaching Arnis in the s and 70s were often reprimanded by their elders for publicly teaching a part of their culture that had been preserved through secrecy. In recent years, there has been increased interest in Arnis for its usefulness when defending against knives in street encounters. As a result, many systems of Arnis have been modified in varying degrees to make them more marketable to a worldwide audience.
Usually this involves increased emphasis on locking, controls, and disarms, focusing mainly on aspects of self-defense. However, most styles follow the philosophy that the best defense is a good offense.
Modern training methods tend to de-emphasize careful footwork and low stances, stressing the learning of techniques in favor of more direct and often lethal tactics designed to instantly end an encounter.
Arnis was first introduced in to xrnis public and private school teachers when Remy Presas taught his personal style of Arnis which he called ” Modern Arnis “. The style “Modern Arnis” is not synonymous with the concept of modern or contemporary Arnis, arnid it has become a full blown sport embraced arnix the Department of Education, although there are some similarities.
There was no formal program for Arnis from s to s. Although some schools taught Arnis, these were not official nor prescribed. The Office of Senator Mercado was given the authority to designate the Arnis instructors for the said program. The Arnis instructors designated by Senator Mercado were informally called the “Mercado boys”.
Dela Cruz, Rodel Dagooc and others who were direct students of Mr. Remy Presas of the Modern Arnis style. In this memorandum, there were two seminars conducted: The Arnis Module Development however did not push through. This video featured the Gialogo Brothers: Richardson and Ryan Gialogo, direct students of Jeremias V. He met with the top NSA officials at that time; however, nothing happened. And this arnnis the start of the modern, contemporary and prevailing Arnis in the Department of Education.
In just two months, Arnis became part of the Palarong Pambansa National Games as a demonstration sport. The Palarong Pambansa was held in Naga City, Bicol Region with nine out of the seventeen regions of the Philippines participating.
