The art of ESKRIDO was developed by Supreme Grandmaster Ciriaco “Cacoy” Canete and founded as a system in 1948 under the Doce Pares School.

Eskrido combines the Filipino close range stickfighting system of Korto Kurbada with locks, throws and takedowns from the Japanese martial arts of Judo, Ju-Jitsu and Aikido.

SGM. “Cacoy” spent many years practicing and studying these arts under some of the top practitioners in the Philippines and later combined the skills he mastered with his close range stickfighting system, creating the new art of ESKRIDO.
