When I first started training martial arts, we used rattan sticks (which is what they used in the Philippines for many years). It was considered a safe way to train our forms and techniques with full power and full speed, we would actually make full contact (rattan to rattan), but only for so long. No stick can take too many strikes. 

A Moro warrior (Philippine fighter), after he reached a level of mastery, would forge himself or get a sword forged of real battle ready steel. (The sword would likely be the same style sword as his masters).

There are so many styles of sword/ knife the Philippine people master in crafting and technique.

After my teacher showed me one style of sword that his teacher (Ernesto Presas) gave him, then I saw another style from another island, I had to see the next. The amount of styles of swords are limited to how many islands there are in the Philippines (over 7,000).

Nino (Guru) Kalaj attempted to duplicate the many styles of sword/ knife the Filipino people would use, so the student may advance their training for the technique they prefer.

Many of the swords/ Knives we wake are made of a high density polymer, or aluminum.

These Philippine swords train well as a pair, some are best by themselves or with a knife, it all depends on the student and the art.

We hope that you enjoy the many styles as much as we do.
