Hello all, Just wanted to post my thoughts on this topic. In regards to weight distribution within our interpretation of Teovel's Baliantawak, there is more than 50-50 weight distribution. We have 50-50, 100-0, 75-25, etc. In my limited experience, it seems very important to be able to adjust your balance and weight placement between your feet to effectively respond to various attacks. For example, when one is weaving and evading during agak, you are very often placed in a 100-0 weight distribution on the back leg, then when utilizing your offensive tools, you can be in 100-0 on the lead leg. Center balance (50-50) is a happy place where you can both engage defensively and offensively. I think this statment from Mr. Janulis is very accurate: "Weight distribution changes in the fight depending on what your trying to accomplish." I also believe there is the more common V-stepping within the Balintawak system. In strike number 12 (forehand vertical strike down the center line), the agakee can step to the forward 45 degrees to the left, while simultaneously parrying and striking. (My apologies if my words cannot convery what I am trying to express.) The footwork of Balintawak is more linear due to the speed of the strikes (greater emphasis on bodymovement and other things), making it harder to utilize traditional v stepping.... And it is not as emphasized as in other systems... But it is there, maybe a little less pronounced and the the use of the angles are alot smaller since our feet are pretty close together, tight space, etc... Just my worthless .02.
