“Eskrima” or “Escrima” refers to a class of Filipino Martial Arts that emphasize stick and sword fighting. The term and the art most probably originates from the Spanish word “esgrima” which is the term for fencing.

Other terms which have entered into common usage include “Kali” and “Arnis de Máno” (“harness of the hand”); occasionally the abbreviation “FMA” (“Filipino Martial Arts”) is used.

The name Kali, although primarily used in the United States and Europe, is seldom used in the Philippines and in most cases is an unknown word.
