Fighting Sticks of Arnis… The Filipino Bolo

A film clip from Fighting Sticks of Arnis featuring knife expert Grandmaster Bram Frank teaching the large Filipino Knife or Bolo. Bram is also a renowned knife maker with an emphasis on the folding tactical knife, which he teaches in seminars across America. His school is the Common sense self defense street combat… we quote: In all ages of mankind warriors carried weapons, citizens carried weapons, for with a weapon even a child can be king. In CSSD-SC we teach conceptual weapons usage. Unlike traditional empty hand arts, CSSD-SC teaches weapons usage first to allow for understanding reality of combat. Knife teaches stick, stick teaches empty hand, a one way progression for it doesn’t work in reverse.
