    Off topic question.

    I was on youtube and didn't really find any videos with kicks in them. I know our version of escrima has them, I just have not seen them. My instructor says our version of escrima has front/round/side kicks. I was hoping to see a video with a good cross section of escrima kicks.

    Does escrima typically kick high or are they more medium to low kicks? Snapping or thrusting?

    How would they compare to the MT style kicks I learned in mma?

    if they are high kicks then it's not Eskrima the weapons dictate the hight of the kick. Kick high get your legs chopped off. Which type of kicks well mainly stomping and low line aka Muay Thai.

    Leather is always pretty sturdy. However, if you work out on it with sticks regularly expect for it to wear out as well!

    and it would be cheaper to simply but a leather bag.
