Today's arnis, 22 Jul 2018: We continued to review balintawak groupings/variations and necopa inserts from of forehand and backhand pakgang blocks. After that it was Knife Day, so we worked some vasic basic disarms, stressing the lessons in each, such as moving, using safer portions of arms, using leverage, contact trap/grabs, moving your opponent, etc. Then it was the 5-6-7 drill from Modern Arnis. From there, I took the opportunity to review some material from yesterday's excellent group seminar, this time being Guro Nyah Kuti's payang flow drill against knife slashes along angles 1 through 5 in a give-and-take fashion. We also covered Guro Jhun R. Occidental's reverse-grip blade-snake/parry/stab drill. Finally, we covered a drill we used to call knife tapi-tapi wherein one person is reverse/icepick grip and the other is hammer/normal grip, starting with hammer-grip doing a #5 and ending with icepick-grip doing #6 then filet/slash and #7 pokes.
