As you can imagine hitting each other with sticks came quite naturally to most, and those that didn’t have the skills still seemed more than happy to wave a stick around hitting their partners.
Guru Martin (more fondly known as “Bulldog”!) is the UK representative for Nicklestick Eskrima, Martin regularly trains under Grand Master Nick Elizar in the Philippines.

In January 2012 Martin will be starting a new Escrima club at the Honbu Dojo in Norfolk on the first Sunday of every month, to be known as the “Wolf Pack Chapter”
We are all looking forward to it Guru Martin and Thank you for a great course.
