FMA and Pacific Archipelago Concepts - Filipino Weapon Disarms and Counters to Disarms
by the Gringo! W. Hock Hochheim
FMA STICK DISARMING FREE VIDEO
I sometimes teach Filipino Martial Arts, I say sometimes because my real income is from other subjects, and I am very glad to, and when I do, I teach a generic foundation buried inside what I've learned from the Inosanto Systems (many classic styles) and Presas Family Arnis. My goal is to seek out the universal, best core found in all of them, which is why I like to call it, Essential FMA. Learn the essentials and fit in everywhere. I am putting up another fun FMA film, my stick-vs-stick generic, universal disarm breakdown, using the 5 major categories. Shot at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. The Big 5 are:
1) Impact Disarm
2) Stick Snake Disarm
3) Hand Snake Disarm
4) Strip & Keep Disarm (you catch the stick)
5) Strip & Send Disarm (you catch the weapon-bearing limb)
After a sudden, solid stunning blow in sparring-fighting, the enemy's action may slow down, and allow for a trick or two. Like a disarm. (Or, you might be super-duper faster? Or, The opponent is dumb? Or, whatever. Anyway...) This breakdown, done versus the unforgettable thrusts and swings via the Combat Clock numbers was-is a great way to organize training for me.
This simplicity might be a problem for some and violate established formats. For example, a Guro in England one time couldn't believe the easily organized simplicity and said "what about this one?" and he showed me one and I said, "Well, that's a strip and keep because you grabbed the stick," and so on. Identifying the categories, helps better pinpoint the exact training progression for each, to include counters. Anyway, you might find this fun and helpful. If not? Such is life and horse racing.
"Thank you Hock! The breaking all the techniques down into 5 groups alone make this training priceless." - David Young, Japan
