These Foam Escrima Sticks are great to practice some sparring practice and avoiding some of the bruises you’ll get from the traditional rattan escrima sticks. They are perfect for practicing techniques with a partner, learning drills and allow you to really get stuck in with the risk of lumps and bumps. Made from a tough plastic core which can take some serious punishment with a padded foam cover which makes even softer impact from a strike or block.
Escrima sticks have been used by Filipino Stick Fighting arts such as Escrima, Kali and Arnis for centuries. Filipino stick fighting martial arts use one stick or two stick fighting methods, lengths of the stick can vary but the 2' length are the most common, which is mostly what we sell at Enso Martial Arts Shop. This Foam Escrima Stick is 2', the most common length and the most used by our customers and Filipino stick fighting practitioners.
This Foam Escrima Stick is tough but not indestructable, if you beat the absolute hell out of them and used them for a purpose they are not designed for you will break them. Even within stick fighting the foam will eventually wear away and degrade. However, look after them and they should last you for years.
“The core of these escrima sticks is obviously thinner than the traditional rattan escrima sticks to allocate for the foam skin. If your looking for full contact, full pelt sparring they probably aren’t the best choice, but for practice light to medium sparring they are a perfect option”
Doug Swift - Owner of Enso Martial Arts.
