    Filipino Espada

    A sword from my country.

    Here’s some wikipedia stuff for it.

    Espada ‘y’ Daga (also known as “punta y daga” or “olisi y baraw (cebuano))” is a discipline of Eskrima and the Filipino martial arts (FMA) believed to be influenced by Spanish swordsmanship, in particular the Spanish style of Side-sword and Dagger used by the Conquestadors who invaded the Philippine islands in the 16th Century, and not the Rapier and Dagger styles used for dueling and self defence purposes by the Spanish upper classes as was once believed.
