I was looking over the "tippy tappy drill's" thread and was thinking about the few month's i have been on the DBMA forum not being an FMA practioner just a Martial artist and just wanted to say how much i enjoy the reasonable and educated discussion's that are had here.

I especialy want to thank Guro "Crafty" and Pretty kitty for all there work on it.

This forum has got to have some of the best educated and friendliest Martial artist of any forum i have been to on the net.


Martial Arts Topics / Thrust with a staff/ lack there of

Hi folk's

I was in a discussion on another forum about The Dog brother's staff work, the video on the site was linked, and the question came up about why there wasn't much thrusting with the Phillipino staff, now me being a student of Ren./Med. martial art's figured it was there just not used much, other's think it is because it is in effective in a real fight, I have used thrust with success in sparring with our wooden longsword simulator's and padded sparring simulator's which are about the same length and it is used quit frequently in Ren./Med. staff work with 6-7' staff's.

So i am wondering how prevelant thrust are to Phillipino staff work and how often is it used in your fight's, one fight on video doesn't realy tell the whole story and I do not have much if any knowledge of Phillipino staff work.
