In top of all the other things to do, pay attention to the shoulder.
Index the shoulder to reach the elbow Sure, we tend to look at the opponent's sternum in order to see a change in structure which we can use to indicate an attack. If you index the shoulder (whic...
In FMA, the arm is used as a proxy for the body during training
In FMA, the arm is a proxy for the body. Although it's a valid target on its own, the arm is more often than not a proxy for the body during training. This is a safety measure to give room for execu...
Short clip from one of our guests, Bob Valverde, at our annual gathering. Bob teaches Kali in Tucson, AZ. Helluva nice guy and great group overall. If you're in the area (Why? But ok.), give them a visit.
That technique you're training...are you certain that's what is actually being taught?
That technique I just showed...Are you sure that's what we're training? Often times, I'll teach a technique or specific movement that people training have difficulty duplicating. I'll also casually mention (not every time but usu...
You can go quite far with just a palm change.
In FMA, sometimes you can get away with just flipping it. From our training during our K**A Annual Gathering weekend. Often times, all you gotta do is a palm change.
In FMA, we train the use of angles in our footwork to evade attacks, not distance.

Training on Easter Sunday 4/17/22. Don't let the rattan fool you, Eskrima is a bladed practice, not stick fighting. Matter of fact, it's gotta be bladed or we wouldn't be able to skin and quarter the Easter bunny.
Training Eskrima every Saturday, 8-10am. Eskrima...just like beer, it's so much more than a breakfast drink.

Special thanks to Mr. Nuñez for opening his home to the group for the weekend.
Sunday 4/3/22. I heard somewhere that Sunday is the last day for a fun day. To make up for the fun, we started class with our "rope drill" followed by a little of our "fencing drill" and then regular practice. If anyone training with us yesterday doesn't have sore legs today, they didn't train well.

Class on Sunday, 2/6/22. I have a "bad" tendency to bloviate on occasion, especially if a question hits a particular subject upon which I may have been ruminating or listening. To put a cap on my rant from Sunday, don't bother going through innumerable repetitions in order to develop muscle memory. It doesn't exist in that manner anyway.
Saturday practice 2/5/22. One pair working Larga Mano, one working Serrada...there's no snow on the ground but it's still colder than it looks
Excellence in training is a choice but it takes effort to achieve. Mediocrity in training is also a choice and also takes effort. As practitioners, since we're going to put in effort anyway, the difference is in the choice we make and, more importantly, being aware of the fact we get to choose.
