Maharlika Martial Arts: April 30, 2013

Guro Bob Shin went over more stick grappling techniques. This time the Feeder didn't have a stick and entered into a over-under clinch. It starts off with Receiver attacking with angles 1 & 2. Feeder comes in with a roof like shield so the blow glances off the forearm. Then, Feeder goes into the over-under clinch.

Receiver places the stick between them in order to create space. Feeder takes hold of the stick and pushes it over and behind Receiver's head. Feeder quickly jerks stick down with the opposite hand. In that sequence, the Feeder's hand reaches under Receiver's arm (like an americana) and takes hold of the stick to pull down and out of Receiver's hands.

After Feeder disarms Receiver, Feeder can either continue to finish in the clinch or separate to hit and finish.

Later, I went through Transitional Drills with Guro Joe Marana. I had to slow down when glowing  through TD 6 & 10. Maybe next time it will be smoother. It was a good night.

On a side note, I wanted to mention Guro Joe's group. He is also an Atienza and Inosanto Kali instructor. He teaches up in Baltimore, Md.
