    Why balintawak?

    I already train in the art of Arnis but am also interested in studying Balintawak, as I enjoy the single stick work particularly. What would you say the distinguishing features of Balintawak are, in relation to the single stick and Arnis in general.

    Here's what I wrote in response on MT.

    It's a close-in dueling system with great live-hand stick control techniques. For close-in fighting it's one of the best systems going. It is not, however, nearly as generally applicable as some other systems--to largo, swords and empty hand, etc.
