Can Escrima Sticks Be Used in a Strictly Defensive Fashion?

YES! “Modern stick fighting is not just about beating somebody up — you don’t always have to hit,” Melegirto explains in his FREE download, Escrima Sticks 101: Julius Melegrito’s Practical Primer on the Fighting Arts of the Philippines.

“This is very important to know in situations where there are a lot of witnesses because if you have a stick and your opponent doesn’t, the witnesses are going to view you as the aggressor,” Melegrito says. “After all, you’re armed and you’re hitting him. That’s why you also need to know how to use a stick as a shield. These defensive techniques are good for police officers or anyone who doesn’t want to injure the other person.”

Are All Stick-Fighting Techniques Aimed at Injuring the Opponent?
