Believe it or not

Believe it or not

For several years now I’ve been blogging and introducing threads on martial art forums for a variety of martial art websites. My purpose for writing in these forums are to share my experiences and start a conversation in regards to Southeast Asian martial arts namely FMA on this site. Often I read comments like, “I’m calling BS on this or that.” But the fact that whether a person believes something or not is based on their exposure or the lack thereof.

The Redonda Drill

It all starts with the feet

I often refer to fencing techniques during instruction.  I spent a good part of my youth in a fencing school, practicing advances, retreats, lunges and other techniques.  My teacher was the father of one of my high school friends.  Maestro Meudt had a small club in Maryland called the Olympic Fencing Club and we would go there and train a lot and go to local competitions.  Later, I signed up for the team in college and I got to compete throughout the mid-Atlantic and once in…
