The Filipino art of stick fighting is known by Escrima, Kali or Arnis.  At KATMA we prefer to use Escrima. Escrima is known to be one of the most effective systems of weapons training. It is know best for the use of sticks, knives, swords and empty hand techniques.  They can be seen in movies like “Bourne Identity” or “ Book of Eli”.

We are the only school in the greater Savannah area that teach an actual Filipino system. Our system is called  Lameco Escrima “Backyard Escrima style”.  This system specializes on the concept of  three distant  distances for offense and defense. Long “ Largo”, middle “Medio” and Close “ Corto” and that is how we get the acronym and name LAMECO.
