Class: 021512

My goodness! We had a big class today! Much love to everyone who came out tonight! I had a lot of fun!! We didn’t cover material I anticipated but instead we reviewed last weeks lesson. The teacher is also the student! I learned that at times I give too much information. Thank you to all the students for the reflection. Gotta dial it back a bit. Regardless, everyone had a great time!


17 Strikes

Inside Blocks / Payong Blocks

Identifying 3 strike follow up after blocks

For the advanced folks:

Pandol / Fulcrum Strikes

That’s it! We’ll continue building on this material as well as mounting onto the Pendulum of course. Folks liked the idea of Jasper and I shooting video of the material each week so we’ll start posting that up for your homework and review. Thanks again everyone, especially our new friends! We’ll see you next week!

  1. I was grateful for the review! I don’t get to practice enough between classes so the review helps me a lot! Loving this class! I think it’s exactly what I need, personally, and I’m so happy to have so many solid, good people in the studio. Happy to build with y’all!

    Speaking of practice, I have an informal “class” on Friday’s @ 4-5:30. It’s actually my personal work out. So, it will include some kick your butt conditioning with martial artists in mind (doing some pilates in a way that martial artists really need to be exposed to and working it out on the TRX among other things) and it’s when I will practice my eskrima. If you come, we will definitely practice some eskrima!

    I know. 4pm on Fridays kinda sucks for everyone but me. But if you can, roll through!

  2. More:
    My favorite learnings from the day
    – Franz helping me feel which muscles to use for those temple shots with a name I don’t know how to spell 🙂
    – another woman in class!!
    – how step to the outside
    – Franz switching grips
    – sparing with J
    – watching sifu mike with everyone
    – that I didn’t miss all of the footwork at the beginning

  3. Hey Kendal,
    The temple shots were angles 10 & 11, if you look at the chart of the 17 strikes Ken put up on our facebook group. The name your probably thinking of is “abaniko” or fan/fanning strikes with the oblique or flat side of the stick.
