With Guro Leo’s permission, here is footage from our Training Group session with Guro Leo Manalo, Full Instructor in the Atienza Kali system that we hosted this past August.
This is an old clip of Guro Lem and Aaron cycling through Sayoc Transition Drill 1. The numerous repetitions helps to install the basic techniques in preparation for more advanced drills.
In attendance: David, Josh, Frank, Bob, Lem and Aaron.
We reviewed AK long blade evolution 1, then did some padded stick sparring. In blade simulation, we treat the padded stick like a blade, so “double-kills” are a no-no and distance control is essential.
