I don’t think there is any difference between the 3 words unless you want to try to break down the meaning and find a difference that way or what language they originated from, but it does little to show any true difference in techniques, stances, forms, weapons used and/or applications of said weapons.
The true differences in the arts lie in the style or system names such as: Doce Pares, Decampo, Lameco, Modern, Rapid, Sayoc, Sikaran, Suntukan, Kombatan, Balintawak, and so on, just to name a few. The choice of whether to use the word Arnis, Arnes, Escrima, Eskrima, Esgrima or Kali before or after was probably more a factor of what language or dialect they spoke, or what region of the county they were from.
The biggest differences are usually in stance and range. Some cover all while others focus on specific ranges. The next thing people usually notice is the check-hand. Some use high, some low, some focus on keeping the check-hand directly behind the weapon-hand, palm up, palm down, etc, etc… Other minor differences are usually in striking patterns. I seen anything from 7 to 12, although most of the ones I have seen a number one or San Miguel is usually the same: an overhand right going from your right shoulder toward your left hip. Other minor difference: speed or power, light stick or heavy stick, long stick or short stick, edged weapons work or just stick, empty hand translations or none… The differences can be many but they usually have many more things in common than they do different.
You must not fight too often with one enemy, or you will teach him all your art of war.
