DBMA in Manhattan, LG Dog Russ? Patio

In Attendance: Agapito Gonzalez, Amal J., Brandon Carter, Jason D?Agnenica, LG Dog Russ

Tonight was an investigative class as to the roots of some of the systems we train.  I asked Guro Agapito to show a Pekiti Tirsia Seguida and some of its variations.

Agapito began by teaching the basic PTK four count that we learn in Inosanto Blend Kali.  He emphasized that this is a structure from which variations and creative interpretation can follow.

Figure Eight or infinity symbol (∞)-
We trained this in flow at first, starting and ending on the backhand shoulder.  Then we trained it as four distinct movements out of that flow:

1) backhand jab
2) palm up downward slice
3) palm up upward slice
4) backhand jab

Variation two:

1) backhand jab
2) palm up downward slice
3) palm up upward slice
4) forehand broken strike/ tear (this can also be a slash across)

We used these two against a metrinome angle 1.

Variation three:

1) arcing backhand downward slash (beginning palm down and then switching to palm up)
2) slash back up along the same line
3) return backhand jab or forehand broken strike/ tear

Use against a metrinome angle 2.

Variation four:

1) backhand fan out w/ empty hand support (protective forearm block if needed)
2) lift for small circle redondo (very tight)
3) backhand jab

Use against a metrinome angle 2.
