I am a Filipino Martial arts practioner and Jazz Trumpet player. It appears to me that there are so many similarities between practicing martial arts, particularlly the FMAs, and playing music, e.g. use of drums in training. I have found that my FMA training has helped me as a musician and vice versa. Any other musicians/FMA guys out there who have the same sentiments? Interested in hearing your thoughts. Thanks
This told to me by "Bruce Lee Historian" David Tadman, as told to him by Bruce's brother, Robert.
Any link for a good Tribal Drums?
this one... :)
Yes, I do tend to agree that music and FMA or MA in general go hand in hand. Through my years in the arts I have dabbed in the acustic guitar, sax and harmonica. The late Great GM Ben Largusa played the Ukulele and other instructors I know such as Mang Eddie Lastra, GM Robert Castro and GM Mike Giron play the bass, acustics guitar, keyboards and conga. Understanding the vocabulary such as beat, technique, call and response, rhythm, half beats, form, staccato, largo, sequence... etc. are universal when it comes to the arts. Regards David
