    Anyone have any tips for learning the 8-9-9? I've got the 8 down pat! :p: But I'm having trouble remembering the stick positions on the 9-9. Did any of you have trouble learning this at first?

    Do you mean reverse sinawali?

    Single, double, and reverse. The single has 8 sounds and the other two have nine sounds. Sounds being the number of clicks you hear when hitting sticks (I think that's right!). The double and the reverse are what I'm having trouble with. :)

    think of them as 4 and 6 count.

    See this thread: http://www.martialtalk.com/forum/showthread.php?t=11067 on Martial Talk. We did lots of work over there. I might reproduce over here at a later date if I have time.

    There is a link in the above thread to single and antoher for double and also reverse, as well as others.

    On reverse Sinawali in the 1-12 striking it is 8-8-9, which is discussed as I said in the other thread.
