I have recently taken up Filipino arts. I practice Kali and Panantukan, also Doce Pares eskrima. I have to say that I find it addictive, it is an awesome feeling when you start to build speed and power into the drill patterns. The unarmed (panantukan) is also fantastic for focusing your balance and footwork in close quarter situations. I love these arts like a fat kid loves cake
You can check out my school at www.cambridgemartialarts.co.uk I am finding it an excellent environment, and the instruction is top notch, If you are in Cambs. UK and interested in Filipino arts i recommend them.

I do, but I note this thread is from 3 years ago.

Rattan sticks are preferable for practice - for that precise reason...

Swords do require a different distance (ma-ai). But remember that kali/eskrima were initially developed by the Filipinos for using common jungle household bladed implements like daggers, parangs and machettes, to repel the Spanish conquistadors.

A friend of mine whom I used to train with, spent many years with Carlos Navarro, GM/Founder of Black Eagle Escrima. He used to recount stories of the old man (not sure if he's still alive), when teaching techniques, saying things like "break hand, break hand, break leg, break face".... nice!
