I’ve been spending more time on empty hand Kuntao Silat training and practice and have stepped back my weapons practice. This day I added a few minutes with our toys.
Well we’re back to training.
I’ve been working for Habitat so I’ve been inconsistent. Some of you have been away or occupied with life events and duties, but looks like we’re all settling in so we can start training together again. I’ll be regular at Black Lightning unless I post differently on Facebook, and we have a Sunday morning group meeting in Campbell Park with Guru Aldon leading.
Let’s do our thing and have some fun.
I’ve been recently working Kuntao Silat more than my other practices.
This is what my Juru Satu looks like with a little monkey flavor, minus feces throwing…
I may not be as fast and agile as my instructors or even a lot of my peers, but I still do the Kali Silat Dance Of Life.
It is my own, never the same as the one done before, and I always enjoy learning from the dance.
A showcase of styles! They’re all good but check out the swagger of the dude at 6:41. Dude at 12:55 with knife is awesome too.
Doing some Karate Style movement in a gi.
I don’t move like this much anymore and it made different parts of my body sore. At my best, I combine some Karate, Kickboxing, Kali & Silat movement in my carrenza or kembangan, or call it freeform kata! It doesn’t often look like the classical or indigenous manner of movement. After a flowery motion I might jump spin crescent kick into a 1-2/round kick combo, then into a lankha/juru.
Yep, it’s a westernization of eastern concepts, but the east can take that and reclaim it back. After all, some of the martial art boxes are artificial and more nationalist that humanist, therefore they can be expanded.
