Holiday Mixer with Eskabo Daan

“ESKABO Daan is a Filipino Martial Art which has been integrated with aspects of many other martial arts. At first E.S.K.A.B.O started off as an acronym ( Escrima, Serrada, Kali , Arnis, Boxing & Jeet Kune Do).

The mission of Eskabo Daan is to envision and create a global arena where humble minded martial artists who are passionate about promoting and perpetuating the Filipino martial arts, can gather and have an exchange of knowledge and ideas in the absence of financial or political obligations.

We at Eskabo have a desire to share our knowledge and understanding of the unique history and culture of our integrated Filipino martial arts system to as many people as possible.
