Mixed Martial Arts

I have had instruction in Western Kickboxing from several teachers over the years, and this complements Balintawak Eskrima very well, since the body mechanics are very similar in both arts. I have done a little study over the last year at a couple of Mixed Martial Arts clubs, where the mix was primarily Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and kick boxing - Western Kickboxing and Thai Boxing. These arts are very good, and the ground grappling component is especially worthwhile for me, since I have had very little of this training over the years.
