DK FMA update, FMA Informative newsletter and more for Latosa Concepts folk.
I hope ya’ll are doing well. The weather is warmer and we are training LC Escrima outdoors, when the rains is not falling and other things work out. We have to keep our traditions going.
You have heard of making something good out of something bad. Well I’m doing it today. The old fart is feeling his age and the manual work he has. My back is keeping me at home. Some of the subjects of the post have a direct connection to this fact as well as the chance/time I have to post here now.
Before we get to the FMA Informative subject,…Remember to check out the DK FMA club page for the summer training plan. I will have 3 wks with my family for the first time in several years. I’ll be around, just not at the club. This means there will be two wks of total vacation for the club. Many clubs (“Foreninger” in Danish ) here in Denmark shut down for 1-2 month during the summer. We will be doing a mini version of that this year. AKA …2 wks. You can see more about the training plan for the summer here. You will also see that there is a period in which there is only outdoor training, we will not be using the Grøndals Center location during this time.
There are a few guys that have been away from training because of work, exams and the like. Have you dues with you when you start again men!
Remember that we have a “uniform” of types when the train. The club t-shirt and dark shorts.
If you are a total beginner who is in a trial period. A white t-shirt is ok. I try to be tolerant but I only want to say this a few times men.
Now let’s get back to the FMA Informative subject. The reason I am home from work today is a nerve in my back. If you stop and think about some of the things we talk about at training, this is a subject that should be well known. We perform attacks/ counter attacks that damage the body and/or set up damaging attacks/counter attacks. We talk about lower/floating ribs that are easy target, nerves in the neck, muscle attachments and much more. The FMA Informative Newsletter this month has information about the same subjects. Because many of the men training with the club are still learning about bashing with a stick and other attacks, the cutting aspects have not been talked much about. Here is your chance men. There is info about this subject. There is always more we can talk about regarding attack targets and protecting ourselves.
To see the FMA Informative Newsletter click here. You will also see that our club is listed here with many other clubs if you are looking for a club in your area. Many styles are listed and the newsletter reflects the many FMA styles that are trained. That’s the great thing about FMA. You will find clubs that are no-none-sense hard-hitting systems and you will find styles that have their own focus. Where we start teaching people with sticks, palm stick and unarmed and progress to cutting weapons, other styles might focus on other weapon combo’s or combinations (sinawali). In short check it out. I know one of our members will be moving home ( to another country) in a few month. The listing of clubs could help him.
