I am an instructor of Cabales Serrada Escrima, and I began my training in October of 1992. I've written magazine articles discussing martial arts and more specifically Cabales Serrada Escrima. I have taught at the Cabales Serrada Escrima Academy for over two decades.

Comment: Most martial arts only give the practitioners a false sense of security against weapons, yet weapons are involved in the reality of almost any vicious attack, regardless the culture or locality. Although, empty hands against weapons is a last resort we may not have time to get to a weapon when attacked, and it is for that very reason that, Serrada, as a self defense system is a great choice, because Serrada is based upon the use of sword and dagger. Our stick training translates from stick to blade and empty hand fighting techniques that will work effectively against weapons. Self Defense is not a sport so it isn't about fairness; if you sense danger find an equalizer and get to a safe place. Sensing danger is a warning from your subconscious that something isn't right. Pay attention and don't threaten or warn others that you are armed it will just be used against you and besides it eliminates the element of surprise that may help you to survive a vicious ambush. Another point I want to stress is no amount of pain will deter a vicious attack, so instead of hoping to cause pain you must instead indever to injure your attackers, and pain will be a later by-product. Listen to your gut.
