Working in Larong Moro-Moro is just a lot of Fun. Libby and I started with slow and then go faster and faster, till he cant hold his stick anymore,. I was enjoying the moment, wow its have abeen a while since the last time I work on Moro-moro. O forgot that I cover them with Kapatid Nate Group in Chicago and Seminar in Gat-Guro Tim "Tamaraw" Rivera in St. Louis MO.
The thing that get me all the time is when we do it slow, I mess it up, because my Father train me with full speed all the time, so when I start slowing down and my brain start to think about it, the start forgetting thing up, either I miss a strike or add a strike or two. Well, so I do it one way and one way only fast fast super fast.
I can go on with it for hour without getting tired, I have to stop when my partner is already getting his arm cramp, and give him a chance to breath and relax his muscle. You see the purpose of this drill, is to continues hitting him with perfectly guided direction of strike, without getting tire for hours. If you cant go on for this long, then your training is not enough, you need to run, jog, sit-up jump rope, shadow stick fight for longer period of time to train your heart and your muscle to work accordingly to the situation. Being pressure often times our body freeze, and if it happen, our opponent or assailant can do much harm before we even know it, ultimately we're dead..
It's not only training for 5-10 minutes per round, we intend to train between hour and hours of non stop hitting, and if you only hit for certain target you will find yourself get tired faster, so "Larong Moro-Moro" cover that gap, that will allow you to train hour of hour without thinking anymore once you master the Battle Dance Routine.
