Espada y daga (also known as "punta y daga" or "olisi y bara") is one of the most complicated and sophisticated parts of Eskrima. The strong hand wields a stick or long blade and serves as the primary offense.
The weak hand holds the knife and is used for both offense (thrusting and sliding) and defense (blocking, checking and locking). Training starts with drills teaching coordination of the two weapons in striking and checking patterns.
After that footwork and body angling are added. Drills then progress to those involving multiple attacks (usually the long weapon followed by the short weapon). Basic defenses are followed by transitions to the outside, that way avoiding remaining between the opponent's weapons. Finally the complicated espada y daga locks and takedowns are added.
