    I love to blend the pluma entry into de cadena with a quick lutang ending with the # 5 thrust......Or the pluma to abaniko into a saplet. Hell, I dig it all..LOL

    There was a Lameco student who won three consecutive championships using only retirada and bagsak. Usually this is the first technique taught to students because its so easy to learn and can be applied right away.

    Saplet is sweet to be sure PG, that aboniko sure sounds like how I was taught Tatangs "rapidfire" attack.

    My other fav when useing Bolo or baston is enganyo into high gate number 2 slash at head whilst dropping into low gate inside knee attack into a strong cross body clearing shot into high number 5 thrust or number 1 slash, that combo saves my can again and again as its an entry and defense all in one with options to create distance or finish with a power shot.

    All the best,

    To the two-count (block and strike) type of fighter, Sumbra and Cambiada are the techniques that serve them well. And of course, the next of kin Rapillon and Vertical for that type of fighters who barely blocks.

    I have been working this combination as of late...

    serrada position--float with horizontal cross cut--re-enter with bagsak---90 degree lutang into de cadena finishing with 7 or 11 thrust as I step drag to fully quarter the opponent.

    The possibilities are endless!

    My favorite Ilustrisimo single stick/sword technique is the Arko Media Planchada (also called Planchada Doblete) with lutang or retirada footwork.

    V,decadena,v.Excuse my ignorance if I have expressed this improperly,fairly new at this.I like the simplicity,footwork.Influenced by my instructor,of course ,who is very fond of this technique.If I have 30-40 minutes to squeeze in some FMA practice ,this will be foremost.

    Yes, I am actually based in Halifax, we fall under Master Topher Rickett's Kali Ilustrisimo USA banner as well as Master Rey Galang Bakbakan Kali Ilustrisimo.

    Hi Vince,

    That's great that you have a KI group in Halifax. I know both Master Topher and Master Rey.

    They are great mentors. I used to teach a small group in Milton, NS...maybe you can touch base with them and see if they have interest in KI. I did a Silat seminar for them some 15 years ago.

    I like Ligis which can be applied with or without weapons. Mang Romy is a master of Ligis.
