Escrima goes the opposite way; it begins armed and ends, with slight changes in the techniques used in armed combat, unarmed.
With Escrima, your reaction and counterattack is due to visual perception, with WingTsun your reaction in short distance combat (elbows, knees, head-butting, grapple, throw) relies on tactile perception; in long distance combat (feet), as well as with curved attacks, a WT-fighter must also depend on his visual perception.
The combat strategy of WT and Escrima is based on moving towards the attacker while at the same time evading him and the force of his attack.

Arnis, whose name is derived from the Spanish expression "Arnis de mano (harness the hand)" is from the northern parts of Luzon Island; Escrima is from the central Philippines, such as Cebu City; and Kali is from the southern island of Mindanao.
Some claim that, since Mindanao was never conquered by the Spanish to the extent that the rest of the Philippines was, Kali (the older of the three) more closely resembles the original pre-Spanish arts of the area and is more complete and covers more combative possibilities.
Some people say that Kali is a blade art, while Escrima and Arnis are stick arts, but this is a matter of contention.

 Balintawak Arnis/Escrima
The new club being made up of some of the old Labangon club members are said to have wanted to try and forget the past and de-localise the name of their new club, by not using the old name of 'Labangon'.
Balintawak was later used by other Filipinos during different battles as a war cry, so Venancio thought it fitting that his new club should be named after the street where his club was located and the patriotic symbol and battle cry of the warriors of his country.
Venancio was expert in several styles of Escrima, and was also skilled in Boxing, Filipino grappling or ‘Dumog’; and Jui Jitsu, which is referred to by some Filipinos as ‘Combat Judo’.

Techniques are subserviant to concepts in Latosa Escrima, and serve mainly as drills that help students integrate the intellectual concepts into their bodies' natural reactions.
Latosa Escrima is not about saying, "If he does this, you do that." It is about training the body to physically express the Latosa Escrima concepts in order to apply them instantly and effectively to any self-defense situation—and, in the end, to any LIFE situation.
