    If you are refering to Panakutan then yes I agree but Escrima is primarily using sticks so as a way to kill with bare hands its is disqualified.

    The list is obviously wrong, kung fu isn't on there. I mean, all we do is practice killing people with our bare hands. That's why we don't ever spar, we'd all be dead. Then who would you guys make fun of?
    I too am surprised that KF isn't on there. The Divine Fist of the North Star is know to kill legions of men in seconds with but a touch.

    Do bullets even work on aliens?

    Gonna have to disagree with you as Escrima/Kali/Arnis are generally used as over-arching terms to refer to FMA

    Panakutan is simply one name or classification for FMA empty-hand.

    Many escrima arts/systems do not make that particular distinction.

    Just because sticks and weapons are involved as metaphors or teaching tools to aide in teaching empty hand does not disqualify it.

    Yes, but as one person in captions of disaster duly noted, the Cambo defence to a gogoplata is to eat the offending foot.

    I love the modern army combatives program because it emphasizes position over learning moves. Guys in full kit aren't going to be jiu jitsuing their way out of much, but if the can escape and achieve the mount they've won 90% of hand to hand fights on the battlefield.
