Escrima Training Videos

Ironside Medieval Combat teaches both armored sword fighting and unarmored sword fighting.  We cover multiple different styles from Historical European Martial Arts (HEMA), to fully armored steel fighting, to escrima (a form of Filipino sword and stick fighting).  We teach all these styles to give the full experience and range of skills a medieval knight would have.  A knight might not always have time to get into his armor when the enemy is at the gate.

On our Ironside YouTube channelwe have created a couple of playlists dedicated to escrima training.  As you watch these videos picture how effective and devastating these techniques would be if they had swords in their hands instead of training sticks.

Stockton Multi Style Escrima Training Videos

Our first playlist are training videos all dedicated to Stockton Multi Style Escrima.  These videos were filmed and organized by Ironside Instructor Master Nelson Pinto.  There are 9 videos in this playlist.  If you would like to learn more about Stockton Multi Style Escrim please visit their webpage – https://www.stocktonmultistyle.com/

 

Escrima to Sword and Shield

Our second featured playlist are videos translating Filipino sword fighting to medieval sword and shield techniques.  There are a lot of resources for Longsword with well developed curriculums and teaching methods. There isn’t nearly as much resources for learning and mastering sword and shield. Escrima has a unique history. It is a living fighting style that evolved from medieval sword fighting. We are taking the modern style and reverse engineering it to find new and better ways to fight with a sword and shield. Our goal was to address two issues. The first what do these techniques look like when a right handed fighter faces a left handed fighter. This problem occurs often in medieval sword fighting communities. The second how will these techniques work with longer sword and shield. There are 5 videos in this playlist.

Monday Drill 3/4 – March of the Drills

At Ironside MC we have developed a curriculum that has never been seen before.  We have taken years of study, thousands of hours of sparring, drills, tournaments, and much more and organized it in an easy to learn system.  For the month of March we are offering a free peak into our training methods and drills.

 

Power and Body Mechanics

On the surface this drill looks very simple, however, it is the foundation for all other strikes.  With this drill focus on getting the timing of your hips and shoulders down correctly.  To generate power it starts in the legs and hips.  The hips start moving forward, quickly followed by the shoulders, then the arms direct that power.  Once the power has been released the hips pull back, followed by the shoulders, last is the arms.  This turns every strike into a whip.  It also helps you conserve energy.  Many people overly rely on their arms for power, and wear out quickly during a fight.  A fighter that generates power using their body can easily conserve energy and fight all day long.

 

If you like these drills and then you will love our classes!  Come give a class a try for free.
