About A Chat with Sticks and Steel Combatives
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
We are different from typical martial arts school because we address the use of weapons and weapon defense in every class.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
Eskrima (aka Kali/Arnis) is not commonly taught in the United States. It is seen in movies like the Bourne Identity, but it isn't shared as commonly as Karate or TaeKwon Do. We love Eskrima, and we want to spread and share this art that we love.
What do you love most about your job?
Seeing someone go from struggling with a drill or technique, to nailing it! The look on a person's face when they acheive a goal is priceless.
What is the best reaction you've ever gotten from a customer?
One of my students starting bringing his young daughter to our classes. One day he told me, "She woke me up this morning, saying, 'Get up, Dad. We have to go to Eskrima.' She enjoys coming THAT much."
