151  DBMA Martial Arts Forum / Martial Arts Topics / Use of range in single, double stick, empty hands on: October 24, 2003, 06:02:20 PM
I guess I'll take a stab at of it anyway.

  It's not much more difficult, but then again i get to train with guro  Cheesy . One thing training with Guro Crafty has helped me with is being able to recognize different fighting structures. Just like there are structures with single stick and empty hand, there are several structures a double stick fighter may use. However, these become more difficult to discern depending on how active one is at snake range. That said a person can only have their sticks in so many places, both on their right side, both on their left, one on each side, both above, etc. After recognizing this, it is a matter of finding an applicable technique...

"Do you guys have double stick “Attacking Blocks” drills?"

  I feel that Guro Crafty's Los Triques Siniwali has similar elements found in the attacking blocks. I also feel that Krabi Krabong helps cultivate an attacking blocks mentality.

I love this movie. I hope it gets distributed on the big screen here in the US.

Woof All:

Due to technical problems, I'm bringing the original post which started this thread here and deleting the original.

hey what do you think's better for someone starting out with the sticks, single or double? i'm trying to learn double but i'm thinking of going over to just one, i'm basically putting all my power into the right hand anyways, out of habit. is it better to learn the fundamentals on one, then branch out to two when you can use the single with either hand? while i'm on the subject, can someone with one stick go up against someone else, same skill level, with two?


I think it's better to learn double first as learning just one may lead to bad habits, such as a non-active/limp, complimentary hand. Plus, being able to fight with either hand is necessary in competition, street, etc.
When I started I often wanted to work my strong side because my other side was terribly weak. Although this stroked my ego, I didn't imrpove my left side at all. If you are going to work just one stick, start with your off-hand, and work on improving it. Make your bad side good and your good side better.

A person with one stick can do fine against a person with two.

I think Greg Brown could probably comment better on this since he has actually trained over there. From my understanding,  the fighters are interested in a certain amount of longevity, and therefore do not train balls out all of the time. They spend time working on timing and accuracy, and not neccessarily trying not to play the power game while sparring. Since they are professional fighters, it is no use for them to risk injury while training.
