    Making the Connection - Balintawak Influences on Modern Arnis
    By Guro Harold - 09-30-2011 09:29 PM

    ====================

    I saw this video here in this thread and it reminded me of the Influences and elements of Balintawak that are shown in Modern Arnis. I have not formally trained in Balintawak but I can definitely see some of the elements as shown in this clip .

    For example, I can see Block/Check/Counter for Counter in this clip as well as Block/Check/Release. Also the cool thing about the clip is that they are practicing random strikes and not going through the 1 - 5, 12 pattern that you typically see MA students do.

    What other influences do you see in this clip or other ones you would like to share?

    -Thanks
