Anybody do this fun drill?
Using a knife.
You can use most any grip, but let’s say using forward hammer grip in your right hand (orthodox), start off with a simple:
jab, slash, slash.
Then, as an example,
Jab cross jab slash slash

Repeat in rapid succession, switching leads.

You just use your imagination from there.

Using a stick is practically the same, although instead of slash, it’s hit.

With a partner jabbing, you can slip and left parry his jab, slash, slash, jab. The first slash goes under his jab. The second slash is on the outside of his jab arm and the jab
goes to the face.

Fun combos that build speed and dexterity.

My teacher doesn’t allow videos, otherwise I’d post.

One day when someone passes away, his online video will be the only thing that people will remember him.

If you have a new idea, to prove it by video is the best way.

Some people may say that solo form training is not fighting. The following video can prove that solo form training and fighting can be the same.

I really don't understand instructors who feel they need this level of control. Will some crap get out there? Sure. What does it really matter?
Totally with you. They’ll say it respect to the GM, but the GM synthesized his art from other arts. So complicated…

But, with all that said, do you box while holding a weapon. Let’s say with your lead hand you are holding a baton. You hit in and “X” pattern and follow up with a boxing cross. Do this both right and left handed. Feel free to add elbows, feet and knees into these exercises. These types of drills really help with fluidity and adaptability. Good stuff!

I have done and still do it.
I use larger sticks for extra mass.
I use full sized sharp swords as well with full mass to also practice alone.
.
Of course in an office it is empty handed or just in my mind like I do before I go to bed.

Mixing the two? Honestly I have never thought about it but it does sound very interesting.
