Then you will certainly be able to reach a different level through the training and guidance of Frans Stroeven. Frans will provide you with new knowledge and ideas and hopes to see you at one of his seminars or trainings.


Frans Stroeven has been practicing Eskrima since 1983 and gives seminars all over the world. Frans is also the only state-recognized Eskrima teacher in the Netherlands and recognized by the NOC * NSF (Dutch Olympic Committee * Dutch Sports Federation).

The programs are put together so that you will progress quickly as a beginner. You buy some basic training equipment and just get started. (See answers to question 3 and 4)

Eskrima training requires a short stick (and sometimes a knife ).).
For Knife fighting, you'll use a training knife.
It is best to use MMA gloves for Pangamot, but if you already have boxing gloves, you can use those as well.

Of course, it's best to have a training partner, but it's also easy to train without one. Think about solo exercises with weapons (sometimes in front of a mirror) or training with a punching bag.

SCS is an added value to any martial art or self-defense. The techniques and training methods have been adapted so that they can be easily integrated into other martial arts or self-defense systems.
