    Double Stick Sumbrada Seminar

    Double Stick Sumbrada Seminar

    _mg_2257Bruce Lee said “If you want to learn to swim jump into the water. On dry land no frame of mind is ever going to help you.”

    In the Filipino Martial Arts there exist micro games within categories and ranges of weaponry. It is within this flow that attributes and combative skill can be developed and ingrained safely and progressively. Coming back to Bruce Lee’s analolgy the drills are what we sometimes call ‘filling the pool’ and it is the variables, broken rhythm and choice reaction within the drill that we need to get to. But first we needed to fill the pool.

    Sumbrada is one of those training methods and generally starts out with a counter-for-counter structure.

    We will be working on our 12 basic contra sumbrada patterns with double sticks then progressively coming back to stick & dagger, single stick, double dagger and single dagger if time allows.

    April 12, 2015

    Guro Jon Escudero Fall 2014 Arnis Seminar

    Arnis Seminar in Seattle

    Guro Jon Escudero LSAI Seattle
    Join us for a 2 day seminar with Guro Jon Escudero in Seattle on Lightning Scientific Arnis this October 25 & 26, 2014. Master Jon will be flying in from Israel to update his students here in Seattle, WA and Washington D.C.

    A system founded in 1937 by Grandmaster Benjamin Luna-Lema. The system is composed of the Tercia, Cadenilla, Serrada and Espada Y Daga styles. It is known for its powerful, fluid, and fast strikes; its preference for “blind-siding” the opponent; and its focus on the stick and knife. An important principle in Lightning is closing with the opponent and ‘blanketing’ them with multiple strikes. Grandmaster Lema …would say, “If he gives me one strike, I give him fifteen. Even if he does not give me one strike, I give him fifteen.”

    Equipment Needed: 2 Sticks and a training dagger.

    Guro Jon may be available for private lessons between the 23rd and 26th. Please inquire. Guro Jon is a popular guest instructor here at MKG and his seminars are known for being practical yet fun and full of humor.
