Lameco Eskrima - Some Blade training concepts

Here are some Blade training concepts from the Lameco Eskrima System. With a partner use only eye protection and rounded tipped metal blades. This is extreme contact training only for advanced practitioners. You will use medium/hard contact to the body! This type of reality training develops the attitude that you can't get use to being slashed or stabbed at all! Your partner is slashing and you are counter thrusting and digging it in. There is no real injury but alot of bruises...you will see alot of natural movement to get out of the way and not get hit..cause it hurts.


  1. Slash/slash/slash
  2. Slash/slash/thrust
  3. Slash/thrust/thrust
  4. Slash/thrust/slash
  5. Thrust/thrust/thrust
  6. Thrust/thrust/slash
  7. Thrust/slash/thrust
  8. Thrust/slash/thrust

Five ways of the blade

  2. Keep
  3. Return to sender
  4. Throw
