What is Bahad Zu'Bu?
It's a Filipino Martial Art (also known as Eskrima, Kali, or Arnis). Most martial arts make you learn years of "empty hand" forms before you get to play with weapons, we hand you one your first day. We start everyone with training swords, knives and sticks that have all edges removed for safety. You learn basic footwork, defenses and techniques.
Where have you seen Eskrima before?
The Bourne Trilogy , Book of Eli, Blade, Hanna, Mission Impossible 3, Taken, The Hunted, James Bond, Quantum of Solace, and more.
Known for it's lightning quick knife defenses, sword fencing and general effectiveness Eskrima is the "go to" martial art for many special forces, law enforcement and bodyguards.
Training is led by coaches Federico Malibago and Cutler Dozier. They are not only champion level fighters at the national and international level, but have made many champions as well. Empower yourself by joining the Bahad Zubu Midwest Chapter!
