John,

We also do a lot of impact conditioning, much the same way you do, and with medicine balls.  I truly believe this helps.  Tom and Ryan both have great points as well.  Skill and mindset are both very important parts of the equation.  It also helps to be in great shape, you'll tolerate more and recover faster.

Grizzly,

I'm not sure exactly what you mean.  But try the following:  Strive to keep your ears over your hips most of the time, step with the foot closest to the direction you're going, and push off the other foot, do all that simultaneously.  Think balance and forward pressure.('evil')

Try that until your opponent starts to back pedal.  Once he's flat footed and bending backwards run him over.  Your normal running gait should be good enough.

Hope this helps.

Daniel,

Thanks for the compliment.  The schools ( 4 actually) you see in the pictures are not mine.  They are pictures from seminars and work shops I've taught.
The school I teach out of, is the school with the blue flooring.  Miami Beach Martial Arts.  Yes, we do have great fun.  I have a great training group.  They are all very dedicated and enthusiastic and best of all welcoming.   If you ever find yourself in sunny Miami Beach come by and see us.  Better yet give me a heads up and if you'd like, do a workshop or seminar for us.  Did I mention we're walking distance from the famous(or infamous) South beach.('Cheesy')

I totally agree with Sting.  Other pieces of equipment worth mentioning are the Lameco forearm guards, shin pads, and padded sticks.  All of which allow us to put in the amount of training volume to actually get good.  All of the above mentioned equipment allow us to drill with contact and "enthusiasm"

Grizzly,

I don't know much about point fighting but I have a student who was a local point Karate champion.  In class he frequently uses a modified lead leg round kick that slides the support leg forward as the kicking leg chambers.  Most of the time you feel it before you even see him move.  It hurts like hell.  If you are wearing shoes it may work well to the groin.  In class he uses it to strike the inner thigh with great effect.  The down side is on grass or uneven terrain it doesn't work very well.  Hope this helps.

Tom,

SSSSHHHHH.

When are you going to do another workshop.  The complex you showed me last time did amazing things for my power endurance, but now we need something new.

PS

Crafty you may wish to check out Garrote Larense( Venezuelan stick fighting) they use some very deceptive hand switching skills to confuse their opponents.  Great stuff for developing bilateralism.

First of all let me congratulate Guro Crafty on yet another excellent video.

Crafty, you are probably already familiar with what old time boxers refered to as "shifting".  Essentialy changing leads while punching in combinations. This falls right in with the Trigg series.

Island Dogg we've been using FMA in submission grappling for a while now.  For example we can set up single leg takedowns by stepping on our opponents foot.  We've successfully used this strategy so many times its one of our staple moves.  Another useful one is a move I believe Silat players call kenjit ( the one when you throw him over a horse stance).  One of our fighters used it to follow up a failed single leg attempt.  The setup was to step forward, disbalance him with the kenjit and jump on him into a mount.  Tons of useful stuff when clinching.  Arm wrenches and the over under two on one ( Lameco's siniguro) are great for setting up takedowns or even standing submissions.  

Vtach try using hubud style passing to escape when you are cornered and covering.  Drill this like a boxer stuck in a corner.  If you are shedding well, slip out to either side using FMA foot work with hubud.  In fact we often warm up with hubud and similar drills prior to contact drills or sparring and have found  it very useful.

Respectfully,
Tony Torre

Top Dog, I am aware of several systems of silat that use the phases of the moon as a method of "periodization".  I'm also aware various sympathetic and high magic practices using the phases of the moon.  Just curious as to where yours comes from?  Also, curious how frequently you train with the heavy stick and how much volume you do.  I once developed a case of Arnis elbow using heavy sticks any advice?
