What is Escrima?

Escrima is a martial art that emphasizes the use of various kinds of non-firearm / projectile weapons. It began in the Philippines but you will also see some European influence in it as well. Escrima employs weapons such as sticks, knives, staffs, machete, tonfa and swords, but it can also be an unarmed combat system. To summarize, it’s a pretty badass skill to learn.

Weapons Techniques

Besides our standard weapons, we also teach how to utilize improvised weapons. Regardless of what weapon you use, the fighting techniques remain mostly similar. This makes not only learning easier but transitioning to a different weapon is easier. Like Wing Chun, it is concept driven rather than technique driven. As you move from one weapon to another the progression is natural.

Our Instructor

Tom Richards is a 4th level Technician in Wing Xun with over 14 yrs of experience teaching. Most of my training has been under Sifu Klaus Brand and also Sifu Paul Wang. I have trained under others as well as training with various Filipino Martial Arts schools.  Wing Xun has given me so much and I am passionate about teaching this incredible martial art to those who are eager to learn.


Wing Chun

Through standard partner exercises you will learn to see, feel, and respond to every variation of attack. Students also train forms as well as application. Wing Xun employs techniques that are effective, efficient, and fast!



Escrima is a weapons focused martial art. It is concept rather than technique based. Students begin with single stick but by integrating concepts, techniques become innumerate and transitioning to any weapon is seamless.


Self Defense

Students will have the opportunity to train with others and learn the fundamentals of self defense skill in movement. A small time will be dedicated to awareness and mindset. These skills are practical defense techniques.
