The ‘All-Rounder’. The Palasan is slim, relatively light but tough and imported directly from the manufacturer in the Philippines by APEX. These are a very popular stick amongst players wishing to use the same stick for Twirling, Amarra, Drills, Disarming and Locking. As can be seen on the photographs, this rattan has tightly packed fibres with the noded skins left intact and fire-hardened traditionally in the Philippines. The perfect choice for anyone either starting off in the Filipino Martial Arts or the more experienced FMA’ist wanting a reasonably priced ‘do-it-all’ stick. There are three fantastic burnt designs; Scorpion, Tarantula and Striped.
