Atienza Kali Seminar at Maharlika Martial Arts

A lot of good information in this seminar.  Evolution 1 Bolo with feeder 1 and feeder 2 drills.  Explanation of force anchor (press, stand, pull).  Discussed different fighter types and how to tell from the footwork and body stance.  Discussion of footwork in relation to mass attack.  Many other types of training drills to aide in force-anchor attacks/counters.  This was a really good seminar with a lot of information.   If you ever get a chance to attend a Atienza kali seminar, you should go.  You will learn a lot of good techniques and tactics for the bolo/machete.

Class: May 8, 2011
