I hope ya’ll are doing well. If you are on vacation, we hope it’s a good one.
The subject for today is Sinawali or strike patterns that we use in Latosa Concepts. students start using two sticks when they start on the 4-5th grade. One of the drills that is used to teach coordination and timing is a 2 stick – high, high, low. As I have written before, we keep some secrets for training sessions and we show some of what we do in videos. The video below is an example of a few ways to improve basic drills.
The idea of start positions and zones is nothing new. You can see that in earlier videos. People are always looking for a way around a problem or over it, and a few just want to crush it! Fresh eyes tend to see something new. When we start a strike combination from a different point in the series we tend to see things differently. That tends to make the sticking points in a strike series more fluid and problems with coordination go away. When we follow the the teachings of GM Rene we want to be free of the restraints of a planned series of attacks. By learning many attack combinations, we can just keep on switching up between the series we know, break different rhythms down or hopefully find our own variations that no one can stop. It’s all about freeing the mind and body up so we are not bound by what our opponent is doing.
In the video below we show the normal variations of 2 stick – high, high, low. After that MA and I show some of the ways to get past the sticking points many people have as well as how the drill ties in with the first grade for Latosa Concepts, FMA. There are other ways to make variations of the drill but we’ll save those for some class subjects.
This should be more than enough introduction to the video. We old farts can tend to talk a lot in out old age. He he! Ya’ll have a great day.
