Most forms of Filipino Martial Art styles employ the solo baston, doble baston, long and short combinations, knife work, empty hands, grappling, and so on. In fact it’s rare to see a teacher or practitioner of FMA that sticks to one aspect of FMA. But is it a necessity to train in many aspects of FMA? Did European fencing clubs practice boxing as well as fencing techniques? What if single stick was the only method someone placed all of their focus on, would it be enough or are multiple facets an integral part of the Filipino Martial Arts?
