Cabales Serrada Eskrima


Cabales Serrada Eskrima

Cabales Serrada Escrima is a system of Eskrima, a form of Filipino martial arts.

This fighting technique was introduced in Stockton, California, United States in 1966. [http://www.serrada.net/index_files/history.htm International Serrada Eskrima Society] ] Serrada Eskrima utilizes the art of stickfighting as well as Espada y Daga techniques. Serrada eskrima is usually practiced at close (also known as "corto") range. The word Serrada means "to close" in Spanish, and Escrima or Eskrima means to skirmish.

The Filipino founding father of Cabales Serrada Escrima was Angel Cabales (1917-1991). He was a disciple of Felisimo Dizon. While the mysteries of Filipino stickfighting were still shrouded in secrecy in the remote South Pacific archipelagos, Angel Cabales emigrated east to the United States. Here he introduced his unique brand of self-defense, and became known as the "Father of Serrada Escrima in America".

In essence, the Cabales Serrada System of Escrima was designed as a form of personal defense, as well as a form of critical thinking. Within the past several decades countless martial artists worldwide have had the rare opportunity to train and to discover the skills, wisdom and close-range, stick and knife empty-hand strategies of Cabales Serrada Escrima.
