Bar None: S2E13 - Arnis De Mano: The Harness Of The Hands

The best defense is a good offense and with its close quarter combat and swift moves, Arnis proves to be a martial art that aptly embodies this statement. Originating from the Philippines, the composite art was influenced by numerous systems and cultures during its development and is currently being taught and practiced by various law enforcers and military groups worldwide.

Highly effective in practical use and no stranger to the silver screens, Arnis has been featured in many films -- most notably the Bourne trilogy. This week we have the duo from Arnis Malaysia, Clarence Chua and Fakhruddin Mohamed and they explain why Arnis is not as lethal as it may have been perceived and how they are spreading the art of Arnis across the region.
