Battle wounds! A few blisters from the sticks we use for class.Looks like we’ll start more formal lesson for #arnis next week. Our trainer mentioned that we’ll have our belting soon!  Must let these heal and practice more. #arnis #martialart #philippinemartialart #training #renka002 #thoughtfulwonderings #willStockUpWithBandaids #fun (Taken with Instagram)

Boy, my arm will hurt tomorrow. I just know it.

Had my first Arnis lesson today!

I was lucky enough to have Arnis for my PE two years ago but this is the first time in so long I’ve actually held the sticks and learned new combinations.

I’m still a newbie to it but I love how practical this martial art is. The movements though usually done with sticks, may be used for hand-to-hand combat and regular items. Doesn’t hurt that this art started here in my country, the Philippines. I love the flow of the movements I learned today. Learning the moves feels like learning a dance.

What I learned in my PE years ago was more on a pattern yet today really felt like it’s traditional Arnis… the kind people could use to fight in real life with.

I’m still hoping and wishing one day, I could make or help make a movie that features Arnis and maybe Balisong (Knife fighting) as it’s main fighting style… *dreams*

Anyways, I will really push through filming an action sequence with my friend and a prof. Not actually sure if the scene would have a story or would it just be a practice to capture the actions. Either way, this will be fun ~
