Projectiles have a long history of being used in combat in the Philippine’s; from the bow and arrow to the blow pipe to the throwing axe.
Projectiles can be used in an offensive and defensive capacity, such as when closing the distance or throwing a knife whilst maintaining your range, or to cause a distraction or injury to enable one to escape.
The advantage of training in projectiles is that the skill can be used at all ranges.
The study of projectiles enables one to develop the following skills: awareness, drawing, throwing power and accuracy.
The development of these skills can allow one to be able to use everyday carry items such as coins, pens, keys etc. if one needs to defend oneself from an attacker/s.
