    Modern Arnis Basic Striking Patterns Discussion

    I know this could get large, yet I still ask:

    Post the striking pattern or numbering of your system.

    Please do it one pattern per post.

    Thank you

    Re: Basic Striking Patterns

    Modern Arnis, WMAA organization:

    1. High forehand diagonal swing
    2. High backhand diagonal swing
    3. Mid-level forehand horizontal swing
    4. Mid-level backhand horizontal swing
    5. Mid-level thrust
    6. High forehand thrust
    7. High backhand thrust
    8. Low backhand diagonal swing
    9. Low forehand diagonal swing
    10. High vertical swing

    Of course, we focus more on the angles than the level. The angle in the first two diagonal swings is not the same as that in the last two. The forehand thrust has palm down (or to the right), and the backhand thrust has palm up (or to the left), when done in the right hand. The #5,6,7 strikes are also done hooked. (Other strikes can also be hooked.) The #10 strike may be done as an overhead strike or one that moves with the tip in almost a horizontal line, straight into the face.

    Re: Basic Striking Patterns

    For some drills we use this set (I believe it's one of many from Lacoste/Inosanto).

    1: forehand downward to neck/clavicle
    2: backhand upward to waist/groin
    3: forehand upward to waist/groin
    4: backhand downward to neck/clavicle
    5: forehand straight thrust to abdomen
    6: backhand to waist
    7: forehand to waist
    8: backhand thrust to throat/face
    9: forehand thrust to throat/face
    10: backhand curving thrust to abdomen
    11: forehand curving thrust to abdomen
    12: forehand to crown of head

    Re: Basic Striking Patterns

    James,

    According to your chart, your numbers 1 & 2 strikes are to the shoulder or clavicles, your #10 is Remy's #12, and there is no 10 & 11 pokes to the eye? Is this correct?
    MA-80 striking pattern
    1. forehand strike to the temple
    2. backhand strike to the temple
    3. forehand strike to the elbow
    4. backhand strike to the elbow
    5. straight on stab to the stomach
    6. overhand stab to the shoulder insertion
    7. underhand stab to the shoulder insertion
    8. backhand strike to the knee
    9. forehand strike to the knee
    10. overhand stab to the eye
    11. underhand stab to the eye
    12. straight down strike to the top of the head or crown, can be to the clavicle
    13. any strike to the groin (humor)


    I go by forehand and backhand as far as the number strikes go so the left hand #1 strike would be to your opponent's right temple while your right hand #1 strike would be to your opponent's left temple. I also have a numbering pattern for what I call "clip strikes."

    Yours,

    Absolutely. We use different patterns as we move through the curriculum because we draw from several systems and some of the drills work best with certain angling systems.

    The reality of the situation is that the angle systems just give a common "shorthand" method of communication within a system or school. I don't have to tell someone, "Give me a forehand strike to my tempmle." I just say, "Give me an angle 1."

    Or, describing a drill, I can say, "Angle 1, counter with angle 2, counter with angle 4" (or whatever).

    That's the only real thing a specific set of angles does.

    Angle sets in general, though, IMO also help to engender a conceptual understanding which, in turn, leads to people looking more at the underlying principles and concepts than at specific techniques.

    Yes. The WMAA has dropped the #10 and #11, which were the same as #6 and #7 but at a slightly higher target. They didn't offer a different angle! I know some people hook one of the pairs to get a different-looking strike.

    This leaves a 10-count template.

    13. any strike to the groin (humor)
    I attended a seminar with an instructor whose system used a 12-count template with an added a 13th strike to the groin--basically making #12 and #13 an example of rompida or of up-and-down, to put it in Modern Arnis terms.

    Re: Basic Striking Patterns

    Pesilat,

    Do you have any idea where the Inosanto blend striking pattern you listed might come from? I'm a student of Guro Inosanto and I didn't recognize the pattern. I'm pretty sure it's not from Lacoste system, Ilustrisimo (Regino) system, Lameco system, or Villabrille system because I've seen those patterns before. Also, what drills do you use this numbering system for? That might help explain where it comes from. I know the question might be too obscure to answer because Guro Inosanto mixes systems so often, but anything you've got would be appreciated.

    Eric

    My instructor says it's one from Lacoste. And I've seen Guro Dan use it at seminars. We primarily use it with the meets & passes drill (I believe Guro Dan calls it abecedario). As I understand it, Lacoste had several numbering systems that he used.

    However, it's possible that my instructor got the sources confused in his notes from training with Guro Dan. Show it to Guro Dan and I'm sure he'll be able to tell you where it came from (as I said, I've seen him use it at seminars). If you find out it's from a different source, please let me know
