Learn to wield a stick

with all the skill of a swordsman

A stick fight should be over in three seconds,

beyond that, be careful.


Founder of De Campo 123 Original

Our club specialises in De Campo 1-2-3 Original (originally known as De Campo 1-2-3 Orehenal Combat Arnis), the premier Largo Mano system of Eskrima, developed by Jose Diaz Caballero as his "original" system in 1925, at the age of 18. Ahead of his time, Grandmaster Caballero set out his system in a written "lesson plan" that still exists today, and forms the core curriculum of the art that is tested for instructor certification.


GM Caballero was to become famous as the Juego Todo champion of his time. Held during town fiestas, the Juego Todo was an all-out stick fight without protective equipment, where the combatants' only armour was the arnis stick in their hand. It's contemporary legacy can be seen in "Dog Brothers" style full contact live stick sparring.
