Mastering the Principle of a Technique

Many people are taught to do a technique aka "monkey see monkey do". But most never learn the principles behind the the technique. This is sad as you then apply it from any angle. I have been reading and enjoying Mark Wiley's book: Mastering Eskrima Disarms that just came out. After reading some of the book and  looking at who was in the book I was not surprised that his thoughts are similar to mine. I was surprised who we shared as friends. I have always tried to teach my students the…

The Progression of Drills

In Counterpoint Tactical Systems, we have a lot of drills like most FMAs. I came across a video by the Bayani Warrior Group discussing how effective drills are and do they work? Personally, I think the answer is yes and no. Check out the explanation here on my blog: learn the drill, drill the drill, and forget the drill.

"You must know it like you know your name"

 One of my former math teacher's favorite saying was, "you must know it like you know your name..." It's funny the things that you never forget and it's also funny how something like a little saying can be applied to amost anything including the martial arts.

Whether what you're training is practical or not, if you train it enough, you'll get very good at it...  I often use this phrase with my students in order to get my point across to them about the importance of training away from…

Three basic concepts when fighting in FMA, Boxing, etc

These three basic concepts in FMA that I try to teach to my students and get them to understand all the time. These apply to sticks knives and empty hands.

1st concept- get out of the way! If you are not at the point of impact you do not get hit, simple right, you see this in boxing, FMA and Kung Fu. In boxing its called Bobbing and weaving, in FMA it is called Elastiko or Rubber Bando, in Kung Fu you see this in Drunkin Man style. I have even seen this in Tai Chi. Kids do this in…

Indian Travelogue 2 "Bengal Tigers" Bahala Na Graduate Brent Matsuda

I eventually release myself from Varanasi's spell and catch a combination

of planes, trains and automobiles (or rather auto-rickshaws) to Sawai

Madhopur and the gateway to Ranthambore National Park. I've always had a

fascination with big cats and seeing the documentary "Broken Tail" sealed

my fate - I would venture directly into the home turf of Broken Tail

himself, who sadly was killed by a train during his wandering afar from

Ranthambore. But perhaps I would meet…
