ESKRIMA STICK- 24" Hickory
Hickory Eskrima Sticks are more realistic to train with for true Filipino martial arts training.
Why would you want a hickory baton instead of bamboo?
The hickory lasts 10 times longer than the bamboo. They do not splinter nor dent. The weight builds the muscles in your arms in ways that a rattan stick cannot do.
You will also learn to do solid blocks against powerful strikes with these hickory sticks that rattan sticks can not hold up to. There is a good reason why sledgehammer handles are made of this incredibly dense hardwood!
Master Van Donk uses these same excellent hardwood sticks in his dojo. The ends are rounded so nothing catches on them.
Each stick is 24" in length and one inch in diameter, with rounded ends and a light, splinter free finish.
