    Just a word of advice mate - might be good to tell us a bit about yourself (name, style, experience, etc) as some people might feel a bit hesitant about meeting up with an anonymous internet entity...

    I think that's excellent advice Janno. In fact, this is the sort of thing that should be handled via private messaging once a poster has been here long enough to be able to use the PM system. So hang out for a bit, get to know the locals, and work your way up to finding a training partner. Fair enough?

    Hi Eskrima12
    If you could add a little info here I might be interested in training with you. I'm in north-west London. My background's mostly in Thai Martial Arts.

    I'm a raw beginner at escrima-arnis etc. And am looking for someone to train with for drills and feedback etc.

    Good Luck

    Here is a bit ofa warning for newbies.
    If you start doing sinawali and other things with bad form and bad habbits, you will have to unlearn the bad habits. Which is easier said than done.

    Sorry but I'm always a bit suspicious of someone not introducing who they are and asking for a training partner. I am sure you intentions are honourable but a little intro of who you are and what style/system goes a long way. I'm hazarding a guess that the system you do is Doce Pares based purely on the user name you chose. If so why not just go to a club there are plenty on them in London.

    Is anyone interested in training Escrima?


    I was just wondering if anyone would be interested in training escrima with me. I am a beginner and used to attend escrima classes 2 years ago until I got a back injury, but would love to get back into it, as it's so much fun and a great work out

    Anyone interested please drop me a line :)

    What system did you study? For how long? What level were you? How's your back?

    I did a vci wing stun escrima for about a year but that was 3 years ago i think. I reached level 2. My back is okay as long as i don't carry anything heavy or exercise in a way that is harmful to my back. I do yoga every now and then but it is not something i really enjoy... I need to get fit again to strengthen my back muscles and i just thought Escrima is one sport i enjoyed doing.. I would love to get back to it for fun and fitness :)

    Hi Hannah
    IF you're in north-west London that could be doable. And elsewhere on the westish side might be possible too.

    I'd like to at least do some of the basics (in a basic fashion) before attending a class.

    As long as you're not dodgy mind :eek:

    Send me a PM if interested.

    Good Luck

    Rus, I don't think she can PM you because she has a low post count.
