Alternate Activity to enhance your FMA training...

Does anyone of you have a great idea on how to make eskrima more enjoyable to practice? Let's face it, doing the same steps again and again makes the art repetitive and boring. Do you have some cool or crazy ideas to make the steps look fresh and enticing to practice everyday but at the same time, maintaining the concepts of the art's style?

Boxing! Many old school Eskrimadores boxed and grew up in the golden age of filipino boxing.

@JSPEEDY Thanks for the advice. Yeah, coz some western boxing moves came from eskrima like the bolo punch. I'm thinking of some fun activity ideas but the first one that came into my head is the "wax on, wax off" of Mr. Miyagi to Daniel-san in The Karate Kid movie.

Mix up you weapons, start with using longer sticks then go to shorter sticks, then work with wooden swords use a long pole say 5 feet long. Work on you empty hands try empty hands verse stick going for disarm and then return fire back on them. try working out at the beach in the sand go to some woods and try in the woods on a trail, find an alley and  try you skills, Remember that your open hands works like the stick until get knee level then its your legs are the same as the low shots! Do you art slowly and work on you Chi- breathing, now you have Tai Chi with a stick.
