Martial Arts Topics / Attacking Blocks - a training neccessity
« on: August 29, 2006, 08:48:25 AM »
I was teaching class the other day and I realized one of the best drills for getting ready for a Gathering is Attacking Blocks. It is important as learning Hubud. At least, I feel that way. I could see it being taught in every FMA class. Needless to say, lets take time to give credit where credit is over due. Attacking blocks is a creation of Guro Crafty and a core part of dbma curriculum. In a 100 years I could see someone saying we have always had attacking blocks but we do 4 blocks and 4 hits instead of 3 and 3.

The ability to cover distance and move your stick while hitting and counter attacking is essential and quite honestly there are very few drills that address that aspect. So take another look at it, tear it down, look at it up close and I think you will agree. It will supercharge your training.


Martial Arts Topics / Gen. Pershing's "First Command"

If this is an interesting topic, check out "First Command". It is on the military Channel or maybe History Channel. Tivo it. It does an good job of at giving a glimpse of that time period and explaing Pershing's tactics. I did not Art Direct it so the blades are not as good as they could be. Also look out for Gen. Montgomery on that same show played by my friend "Jeff Doba"

Kalani, I could not figure out when the Marines/Lebanon episode was showing. If you check Discovery Channel website. Look under "Unsolved History: Suicide Bombers."

The Estilillia tape is available at otherwise known as Kombat Instruments Ltd.

Also fun note, Guro Crafty and my friend, Richard Kwon will be acting in Alien Chronicles on the History Channel. Also, you just might see myself, PappyDog.
