Jaguar Escrima

Jaguar Escrima is non classical combining elements of Muay Thai, Kick boxing, Karate, and Krav Maga. It is not a competition martial art, but one designed for street combat. Escrima utilizes weapons which, in modern time, are mostly light and concealable, such as extendable batons, extendable nunchaku, and belt buckle knifes. This feature along with the unarmed combat make Jaguar Escrimaa formidable street defence.

Course preparation

Conditioning is an essential part of training. Thus, although Jaguar Escrima welcomes all levels alike, physical preparation before coming to the camp, and for the hot and humid climate in the Philippines is highly recommended.

  • Review by AurĂ©lien

    "Mike has a long-standing experience as a martial artist, has experienced and mastered many (karate, Krav Maga, Muay Thai, Escrima), in order to derive a pragmatic philosophy and approach of fighting: forget about the fancy moves or unrealistic ones and focus on the 10%-20% moves that are efficient. Though I am sure he can also teach those movie-like moves. Mike knows how to adapt his training to one's technical and physical level. He is also a very likable person, who has been living in the Philippines for a few years now - always nice to discuss with him. Accommodation is rustic but perfectly fine (PV panels are there to provide electricity). The location (Sabang) is really nice with its beach, its jungle trails, its mangroves, and the famous underground river. For beginners, bring some basic MMA gloves, as Mike tends to practice without them, which is not easy when hands have not been conditioned."
