ASTIG Combatives Canada----Guro Roger Agbulos.

Location: Brantford Ontario, Canada
Members: 19
Latest Activity: May 30, 2012

If asked "what is ASTIG Combatives", and if I had to answer in a single notion, I would have to say ...- it is a training methodology. Namely, in my view the main feature of this system are not its techniques as such, but rather the training method and learning progression that makes those techniques work in a real-time environment.

The ASTIG method uses pretty much the same techniques as many other FMA and other weapon-based combative schools, but instead of emphasizing the smorgasbord of possible technical maneuvers and combinations for their own sake, the accent is on the development of practitioners' personal physical attributes and proper MECHANICS of DELIVERY. In practice it means working on a limited number of tried and tested functional techniques in such a way that a trainee is able to develop an "internal", corporal understanding of the essence of those techniques, hence being able to use them under constantly changing environment of live combat.

Such a philosophy and approach to training stems from Guro Agbulos' lineage of Lameco SOG, under the direct tutelage of the late PG Edgar Sulite, modified and supported by his own findings and conclusions reached after years of constant training and search for combative truth.

Hopefully next year might be a cornerstone, as Guro Roger should also be doing his first ever European seminars! For starters, he should be in Frankfurt, Germany, on September 10, and possibly in Belgrade, Serbia, one week later.

by ASTIG Combatives CANADA .

just a reminder of the GESABIL 7 point stand of ASTIG Combatives:

1) G - Grip relaxed

2) E - Elbows intact (close to the body)

3) S - Shoulder's angled (not to square up)

4) A - Alive hand in place (hand not hanging down, should be like a boxer's postition)

5) B - Bent knees (for explosiveness)

6) I - Imaginary traiangle for the footwork (dominant foot forward, other foot behind)

7) L - Load distribution (ideal weight on dominant foot is 60%, back is 40%)

enjoy training brothers!!!
