Does anyone train with a whip? This clip has been posted once or twice. It's a piece done in Cebu on Balitok Escrima, featuring GM Abner Pasa as part of the BBC's "Mind, Body, and Kickass Moves" series. In the clip, GM Pasa mentions training with a whip. The comment was made that it was a rare form of training. My training partner mentioned to me once that the theory behind a whip cracking is the tip of the whip breaking the sound barrier. That theory made me curious. Sure enough, it's not just a theory...it has been proven. The speed of a whip is reported on various interent sources as ranging from 1400 - 2300 feet per second. The high end of the range is roughly the velocity of a .22 bullet. Nasty weapon. Anyone use it?
