Kada Anan Eskrima
Guro Michael Butz
Kada Anan Martial Arts is an Arizona chapter of the buffalo black brotherhood (bbb) based in Stockton, California and an Arizona chapter of the Fierce Tigers Martial Arts Association (FTMA), based in Salinas, California, headed by GM Gilbert Cordoncillo.
We teach Kada Anan Eskrima; "Kada Anan" means "Old Style". Our Eskrima is blade-based, not just a stick fighting art. Practice begins with the use of sticks however the combat principles of this art translate into blade and empty-handed skills. In essence this art teaches you how to use anything you can pick up; whether it be a pencil, keys, newspaper, a stick, etc. You will also learn how to use your hands and other parts of your body to protect and defend yourself.
Handmade wood training blades for FMA and Other Martial Arts
Talim is a Filipino word that means "blade" or "edge". It refers to something that is sharp, like the cutting edge of a knife but can also be used to describe anything that is long, wide and flat, like the blade on a propeller or a blade of grass. Although not grammatically correct, the idea behind the name "Talim Trainers" is to allude to the simulation of training with a sharp edge or "a blade for training".
ULEP Training Blades
Ulep Training Blades started as a hobby for Robert. With the high cost of blades, Robert knew he could design and craft his own. Robert's custom blades caught the interest of his classmates at his filipino martial arts training school. The request for custom blades continued to grow and so he turned his garage into a makeshift blade production studio. This studio became what we know today as Ulep Training Blades.
Robert's craft quickly became more demanding. This caught the interest of his youngest son, Gabe, to help his father design and develop these training blades. His father was more than happy to take his son as an apprentice. Quickly, they became a team of two hand crafting quality training blades.
