I was teaching the Bahala Na - Original Giron Escrima system. Instead of going through all of the techniques in Module 1. We broke it down and only worked two of the responses to the Angle 1 attack. (Roof & Cross Block) As we drilled these techniques, we slowly began to build up speed, power, and intensity (to the level that could be handled). Then it was time for monkey in the middle. One student was in the middle while the others took turns coming in with Angle 1 attacks. The person in the middle had to apply what was used to block the incoming attack and then be ready with their response. All in all, everyone had a good time and really began to see the effectiveness of the system.
