Thanks for the tips!

I was looking specifically for traditional Filipino type drills only for the fact I am a certified personal trainer so grippers and such are common tools I already employ.

So I have done a search and personally I did not come up with much on this topic and if I missed something please feel free to put a link in this thread.

I have noticed a lot of guys that use tape on the sticks and even the gloves to some even minor degree aid in gripping the stick (can be knife or other weapon as well). This aid can aid us in maintain a good grip on our weapon even if our actual grip is on the weaker side. This makes me think of a couple things right away. First what if are picking up a weapon that is not our own that is not a nice stick like the ones we use in training and there is no grip tape? The other thing is how do we improve our grip beyond the use a larger diameter stick concept?

For me, starting out as I am in this game currently a focus I have as you can tell is to improve me grip strength on the stick so I do no fear when I hit that the stick will go flying. I know eventually a disarm or the right shot will make me lose my grip.

I am very interested in some traditional Filipino based methods used to improve this area.

Thank you.

Louis
