    Adapt or die. It is the same in every art. I was trained in spear, but picked up arnis on my own a few years back watching Inosanto at play. Escrima is an impressive and most of all FUN way of training all aspects of your body and mind. From footwork to reflexes, movesets to philosophy, it is truly engrossing. If you are passionate about martial arts, this is one worth spending a little time with, if only to play with your friends.
