Would you classify your balintawak as a soft or hard style.I say 'your' as I imagine people have different takes on the art When people start talking about hard/soft styles there is often some extra discussion about the terms. To help this along I would to briefly outline them as Soft: primarily using angles and working round the opponents force. Taiji, bagua, aikido, bjj for example Hard: primarily using force to stop and over come the opponent. Boxing, taekwondo, kyokushin karate for example. In my opinion BTW is largely a soft art, maybe starting off as 'hard' as many styles do and progressively getting softer Any opinions ?
