Oct 27, 2015 – Five Count Passing Drill with Draw from Concealment

Instructing: Guro Lem

Attendance: Brian, Asim, Alex, Lance, and James

Notes: We started class with the review of the five-count passing drill with grappling isolations. Then, we added the hubud technique and funnel tap to the pin of the blade arm. We also performed gunting with empty hands to blade draws from concealment. Later, we reviewed 6’s from the Atienza Kali seminar with Guro Leo M. We also ran through two on one scenarios with grabs.


Oct. 6 2015 – Five Count Passing Drill with Combat Sets

Instructing: Guro Joe C, Guro Joe M, and Guro Lem

Attending: Brian, Dan, Bob, Asim, Lance, Sid, Alex, and James


Five count passing drill with Tuhon Tom’s combat sets 1 – 5. Like in different fma schools, these attacks are from different angles. These preset attacks are then passed through with an open or closed counter. Once the drill has been installed, the Feeder goes into the grappling range of the drill. Each angle will have a different grappling sequence that either goes into a throw or a control that the receiver cannot move out of. This control is done to the blade arm and/or receiver’s body, or head.
