How to Count to 100 for Filipino Martial Arts (i.e. Eskrima)

This page will help you to count in Filipino (Tagalog) for Eskrima, Kali & Arnis, Yaw Yan and other Philippines martial arts styles. We have listed the primary Filipino numbers used in Eskrima for training purposes such as stretching.

We have also added a video where you can hear the proper pronunciation of these numbers. For other Eskrima terms, visit the Eskrima Terminology section.
