At Three Rivers Eskrima Concepts-Inayan Systems West Palm Beach our core curriculum is Inayan Eskrima. Although we explore useful concepts and tools from striking and grappling arts, our teaching and learning centers on the Filipino Martial Arts in general. Filipino Martial Arts are known by many names (Eskrima, Kali, Arnis, Panantukan, etc.) at Three River's Eskrima Concepts (TREC) we focus on the Inayan System of Eskrima in particular.
"The Inayan System of Eskrima" is a complete martial combat system founded by Mangisursuro Michael G. Inay on the basis of a traditional martial art of the Philippines. Eskrima is a martial art and the national sport of the Philippines, with a very long history of combat use.
Tne difference from many martial arts is that the student is taught to train with weapons from the very start,
rather than beginning with empty-hands training. The Filipino martial arts ingrain an interrelationship between
empty-hand skills and weapons, because of this philosophy Eskrima is widely recognized in the martial arts
community for its extreme practicality and effective weapons and empty hand techniques.
