    I had not seen this episode before so I am sure some other people might have missed it as well.

    Blindfolded? Excellent!

    You can really see the similarities to how Remy Presas moved.

    This reminds me of the good old days. When I used to do these demos with GM Ernesto. Always keeps us in Awe.

    There are alot of similarities in both brothers movements. If you ever get to meet Jan the son of GM Ernesto. You will be surprised to see the similarities on how they talk, sit and joke around. Like a young Remy.

    What impresses me the most about 'Kombatan' and GGM Presas is his sensitivity training.Techniques which helps when playing 'live' blade like they teach in the Hawaiian FMA styles. Most of us from my generation in Hawaii grew up using 'bolo', we understand the difference between a 'garote' and a razor sharp 'bolo'. Flowing with and behind the power of the strike. Yes those sensitivity drills of GGM Presas get your awareness up. Truly utilizing the check hand, alive hand etc... as a 'serpents tongue' ! Aloha & Mahalo

    StixMaster I think a lot of the training revolves around Palit-Palit the give and take flow drills that all students practice.. this naturally moves into the trapping, disarming, takedown's etc which than progresses into Free Style which is what you see GM Presas and Master Michael doing during a segment of the clip. It's all great stuff and endless which means you don't get bored with it but rather treat it as a vehicle to explore and grow within the art.
