One of my previous instructors also taught Silat and worked the Sarong with us on a number of occasions. It could be deceptively effective and actually a lot of fun to long as your the one working the techniques. :evil: I liked it but at the time treated it more like something good to know but not likely to use.

Here in the frigid New England winter it's much more likely to be useable if you're wearing a good scarf. That's why I still play with it. Just make sure it's a tight knit one where the fabric isn't very stretchy (Did I just use the word "stretchy"?).


 :-D found these

in a recent seminar I attended with Tuhon Ray Dionaldo here in Jerusalem, he showed us the Sarong and how to use it. Of course non of us here usually walk around wearing one - so we used the next best thing... literaly the shirt off our back  :-o
we didnt video the seminar , but I did find this that kind of gives you an idea
the torque generated from just a little twist in the wrist was enough to pull a big guy down

and of course the ever present beer/coke/wine bottle

this one in hebrew starts with an animated re-enactment - then some actual footage that is kind of graphic on the American PC scale , so be warned before the click 


I dont know who has the bigger balls, the ones who helped people get out of harms way, the ones who stop to help the injured & scared, the ones who run toward the danger and put an end to it? I hope that with all my preparing and training that if & when... at the very least I dont just freeze up

The first few Steven Segal movies are what finally got me into a dojo and kept me there for six or seven years training in Aikikai Aikido.
I even found the Dog Brothers because of the SS stick fight scene in the bar (anybody seen ritchie ) - ended up purchasing every stick fighting video Panther Production had to offer  :lol:

Also any of the Tony Jaa fight scenes! Acrobatic almost to the point of absurd but his knee & elbow work .... mama mia
