12 Basic Strikes for Arnis

Note: The numbering system for stick attack angles can vary greatly depending on the school. The most important part is knowing a number set for the purpose of training with a partner. What might be angle two in one system will be angle four in another. All angle sets should start with forehand strike to the left temple as this is the most common attack by a right handed person. Otherwise many angle numbering sets use strikes, slashes, and thrusts consisting of usually about 12 or so angles which are sometime cut down or stream lined for teaching beginners.
