Striped Rattan Escrima Stick
In the Philippines, the plant of rattan grows plentifully and constantly. While the reed is used for creating many every day objects such as furniture, the warriors of ancient tribes also fashioned weapons. The martial arts commonly used with these stick weapons is kali and arnis. These combat style uses two escrima sticks to deliver and block a quick succession of strikes. Because of the abundant nature of the reed, this stick is usually rattan, and is given burnt patterns along its unpeel outer bark.
Using a wood-like material for martial arts has its benefits. The springy rebound of the reed is due to the interwoven fibers around air pockets that form once the reed is dried. This makes the eskrima very lightweight yet durable and strong. While it still has the outer casing, this is to provide a natural grip, and it won't leave you with roughed up palms. The outer shell is also decorated with the stripes of a tiger, in mixed directions, giving a unique look to this fighting kali stick.
Whether you are replacing a broken stick, or widening your escrima collection, this stick will hang with the best of them at your dojo. Arnis training takes time and practice, and the lightweight rattan won't stress out your muscles during your drill sessions. Keep on training, and you'll be able to fight with the ferocity of a tiger!
