For some time, I've trained Modern Arnis (an Escrima Variant) and enjoyed this greatly, eepecially the fact that one learns to handle diverse weapons - sticks, machetes, knives, ball pens, etc.
I think of starting Arnis again, but I'm open to other systems that also offer me the physical and intellectual challenge of handling vastly different weapons. I believe that there are many well-rounded systems (and many scams and lots of BS too) and different valid approaches and I don't have a problem with challenging my believes and feelings by learning techniques from different traditions than Arnis. I don't have specific self-defense needs, but I do want to learn techniques that make sense and are realistic in their context.
So, what are good Arts for me?
