How important to have hand-to-hand skills?

Escrima is not a competition art. It’s an “If you ain’t cheating, you ain’t doing it right” type art. You are always looking for battlefield expedients.

Very.
Every form of martial arts teaches you how to handle an opponent bigger than you. You always benefit from such combat skills.

It’s always good to have a few basic hand to hand skills—holds and take downs as well as counter moves, especially escapes. all when one’s physical limitations are taken into consideration, of course(says the old guy.)

If you want to be a martial artist, cool beans, but very few have the time to invest (much like knife fighting) however just knowing the main pressure points for self defense doesn’t take years study at a dojo, and may just save your life.
My two cents anyway.
