  1. This is A LOT of material PG Marc & co! Hopefully I can get together w/ Mr. Glen to learn this block of material.

    Looking forward to seeing what I missed at the summer camp too.

  2. With regard to the Chupa variations covered herein I’m not sure he knows it yet– so study the lesson (and ask questions here should you have any) and then you can show him when you work the material haha.

    Of course, there is plenty here regarding fundamentals of how DBMA plays hubud– the position of the elbow, the Lameco Corkscrew, the driving pressure, etc.

    As demonstrated by Ashley here, the driving pressure can be psychologically intimidating to do against a larger person, but when we do it we tend to provoke the “ward off” energy that can be so very efficient in telling us where the opponent/adversary is and by so doing telling us where he is not.

    See e.g.

  3. Observations:
    – Stick hubud tends to be taught/trained wide i.e. “long stem”, which doesn’t translate well for knife or empty hand hubud because the weapons are shorter
    – I can’t help but notice the reinforced punch from Silat in all this

  4. Woof Eric:

    1) If I understand your use of “wide stem” correctly, you mean the Angle 1/Caveman punyo is delivered with a lot of space between the attacker’s head and the punyo. The Villabrille system does this for example. (I have no idea as to why, so everyone should please note this is not a criticism on my part)

    In DBMA, for various reasons, we prefer to deliver the punyo from above the shoulder. Among other reasons this makes for greater translation to empty hand and/or knife.

    2) Agreed that Silat has and makes good use of the reinforced punch– which in DBMA we call Double Force because that is the term in Pekiti Tirsia Kali, which is from where I brought the idea into my Chubacabra system.

  5. One of the ways of looking at the material in this VL is as a study in

    Righty vs Righty. Caveman IP Stab blocked with LH while our knife is low left (by the left hip)

    This is a VERY common point of reference.

    The drilling here allows us to recognize and install certain very efficient responses.

  6. See e.g. 04:00

    This portion of the material here can be seen as applicable if we are in a “Jack Benny” fence (LH on L jaw, RH under L elbow) with the knife hidden along the forearm and the MM launches a big right.
