We are very pleased to announce that
we now carry the rattan sticks made by Guro Kevin Seaman.
Train confidently with professionally handcrafted
Filipino Fighting Sticks that will allow you to train to your full
potential. These are quality tools that will be of great benefit
to you no matter what system you train in. Whether it is Largo
Mano, Doce Pares, Lacoste, Serrada, Derobio, Pekiti Tirsia,
Latosa, VilleBrille, Topado, Modern Arnis, or any other Filipino Martial
Guro Kevin has literally sold thousands of sticks to
satisfied martial artists all over the world for the last 20 years!
Unlike some commercial manufacturers, we leave the skin
intact. This preserves the natural durability of the wood. All of our
sticks are fire-hardened, increasing the strength of our already hard
rattan sticks allowing you to train longer and harder than ever before!
$26.95 per pair
Our top of the line is our standard, with two beautiful
fire-hardened 28" x 7/8" sticks in our standard package. I have
personally used these sticks for many years and have never been
disappointed with their performance. Up to 32" and 1" diameter is
still at regular cost. Longer lengths and larger diameters are
also available. You can mix and match sizes with any order.
Weight: 8 oz.
$29.95 per set
If you're serious about mastering the Filipino Martial
Arts, choose our "Professional Set." the pro set provides the tools to
study single and double stick, Espada/Daga, and Knife-to-Knife. "Our
Professional" comes with two beautiful fire-hardened 28"x 7/8" long
sticks and two 12" matching short sticks. The choice of the
The Pocket Sticks are the smallest set of rattan sticks
that we offer. While they only come in at a length of 6", they are
deceptively effective when used for self-defense. While to the
casual observer the Pocket Stick only looks like a piece of wood (I have
taken one of these with me on an airplane without any issues).
However while the Pocket Stick looks harmless they can be used to
inflict great pain through impact strikes.
$12 per pair
The Sibats/Staffs come in 6' and 5' lengths. (The
one pictured above is 6' in length.) The Sibats are of high
quality and fire hardened for maximum durability. The one shown
above is actually my own personal Sibat. (Rattan sticks are shown for
comparative purposes only.) I prefer to use Sibats that are
slightly on the thin side so that I have the added flexibility to use
short range 'whipping' power techniques when training with this specific
weapon. Of course I also have the more stout Sibats as well to be
used for more aggressive training methods. Please specify desired
thickness and length when ordering.
Weight: 13 oz.
Custom stick sizes can be ordered as well. For
example, below is a picture of my 'Ugly Stick'. The reason for
calling it that whatever it hits is going to be ugly after the impact.
The second picture shows the Ugly stick next to a standard 28" rattan
stick that is offered here.
If you're looking for something with specific
dimensions, drop us a line and we can work out the details.
Why will I only use these sticks? Because of years
of personal experience with training with them. Actually in many
instances, rattan sticks are better than hardwood sticks for training.
A rattan stick can literally break a hardwood stick in half. Here
is a picture of an actual hardwood Kamagong stick that didn't withstand
up to some of our training at my school one day. (It broke a
couple of inches above where I was holding it.)
