Martial Arts Topics / Seminar reviews
« on: October 23, 2007, 09:02:44 PM »
didn't see a thread on this topic...

I just want to thank Guro Crafty, Dino, and Ashley from team ruthless for holding a great seminar out on the east coast last weekend. Guro Crafty covered a large amount of material and I think the participants made strong gains in their stickwork. We reviewed the footwork matrix, the triques material, the salty strike, and some other tangents as well. I haven't trained with Guro in awhile so it was also nice to see some of the new material that he's developed. Good times had by all, it was a great weekend.

I get an "invalid session" message when tring to post a reply on the other thread...

Whenever I spar, whether it be jiu-jitsu, kickboxing, or with soft sticks, I always try to have a sense of play. It allows me to be relaxed more and from there my techniques flow better. There's a book by a japanese monk titled the unfettered mind that has ideas i try to emulate while fighting. The less you focus on hurting your opponent and the more you build an understanding about how and why you are training with each other, the harder you can spar.
That being said, in the intensity of a fight a little berzerker rage can be helpful too.  :wink:

Martial Arts Topics / 1 stick vs. 2 sticks

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.
