Class Notes – Aug 9, 2016 – Long Blade AK

Instructing: Guro Joe C & Guro Lem

Attendence: Brian, Dan, Dinno, and Vince


Tonight we worked on long blade material from Atienza Kali. First we did some triangle and hourglass footwork. Then, we worked off the second count of the bolo evo 1. We used footwork to move out of the attack. Then we used passes along with the footwork. Next we worked on two-counting the attack. All these moves we tried to emphasize moving to the side or even to the back of the attacker. This made sure the attacker would be off balance from trying another attack. If the attacker would swing back (count 3), we would be ready with a tip-up deflection.
