    Point Shooting

    I've been trained in the method where the gun is not rotated until it reaches the centerline of the chest as well. However, I've recently changed to the method described by Arnisandyz. For me, the greatest benefit is weapon retention...at close quarters, if someone is going for your gun, if...

    What the hell purpose does something like that serve? None. Cthulhu

    FMA In the Movies?

    That would be Datu Inocalla. He was the stuntman in the Michaelangelo (I believe) costume for the TMNT movies. I'm pretty sure that's not the extent of his film work. Cthulhu

    New School Carenza Clip!

    Is that kid related to P. Greg Alland at all? Looks like a younger version of him. Cthulhu

    Outdoor training!

    Our group trains in a park on weekends. You do get a lot of onlookers, but that doesn't bother me. Some goofy things from our outdoor training: 1) Half-hearted challenges from other martial artists. 2) Half-hearted challenges from SCA members. 3) Complaints to the park security about the guys...

    Surprised I haven't seen this here yet: Tuhon Bo Sayoc passed away on Jan. 3 at his home in the Philippines. Cthulhu

    You definitely need a qualified instructor. You can't learn concepts like flow and sensitivity by yourself. Cthulhu

    What the Heck is This Mess???

    Look at the video for 'volume 5'...he actually did this stuff in front of a live audience at some bout or tournament. Cthulhu

    IDPA vs IPSC?

    Don't you mean the beginning of the video, you messed up? :) Surrender position, dammit! Cthulhu

    Ugh!!!!

    Wow...it looks like this guy 'learned' his technique from a book or other series of photos, with no clue as how to move between the positions displayed in the photos. That, and he has next to no control over his blade. Cthulhu

    Has The UFC Changed The Way You Train?

    Hasn't changed a dang thing for my training. UFC is a sport. I've never trained for competition. Cthulhu

    Hand Striking Disarms!

    Why you gotta dog me in public? But yeah, the drills can help people like me who like to try to force things into a preferred range. Cthulhu

    Hand Striking Disarms!

    We definitely don't excluse closing to medio, corto, and even "extra" corto range. It's important to know how to fight from largo (which often seems to be missing), and how to target something meaningful from that range, rather then just banging sticks all the time. arnisandyz has done a lot...

    Hand Striking Disarms!

    We'll do a lot of targeting drills with one person wearing heavy gloves (lacrosse/hockey) and the other person targeting the hands with rattan, from largo range. Cthulhu

    Norton Antivirus?

    Per Grisoft's site, here's what you DON'T get with the free version: Less protection — AVG Anti-Virus Free Edition does not detect potentially unwanted programs. No 64-bit and server support — AVG Anti-Virus Free Edition cannot be installed on server operating systems (such as Windows...

    Norton Antivirus?

    After my VirusScan expired, I tried AVG on Bob's recomendation. Been using it ever since. Cthulhu

    A question I can't answer.. please help

    That sounds like something from Inosanto's out of print FMA book. I don't have it on me right now, but in simplest terms, I think zero pressure is just the region of the opponent's striking arc where there is no power in the strike. Cthulhu

    Modern Arnis uniforms

    We wear shoes primarily because an ejected stick or aluminum trainer to the foot sucks. Though my instructors wore the red w/ black trim Modern Arnis uniforms when they tested with Datu Inocalla, we don't wear them for training. Just comfortable clothes, and a club t-shirt if you've got one...

    FMAT: Folder with Guard?

    I have the M16SF, and really like it. I thought the guard would be problematic when the knife was closed, but that's not the case at all. Even better, the clip can be placed in one of four different positions to allow for a variety of carry options. Finally, I really like that it has the Lake...

    thinking about taking up FMA

    Age doesn't matter. We've had many students in our FMA group much older than that begin their training with us. As for cross training (that is, if you're intention is to continue with your karate studies), just be honest with yourself. Check out the FMA class and honestly assess whether or...
