Hi from Argentina I wanna show you a knive's video.I'll you enjoy it
I'm not familiar with this art. Can you tell us a bit about it: where it comes from, what training is like, that sort of thing?
Sipalki comes from Korea.
Sipalki means eighteen techniques, three with empty hands and the other with weapons.My Master Raúl Luzco after 30 years practising Sipalki founded his own school, its name Jumeog Bi Kwan(fist's secret school).
For more information : SIPALKI JUMEOG BI KWAN
Unfortunately, other than the videos, the blog didn't help me much, as I don't speak Portuguese
Eh, that's probably my mistake… I made an assumption that, along with other South American countries, the language I was seeing was Portuguese. If it's Spanish, that doesn't remove my issue in reading it (as evidenced by my not recognising which exact language)… but they're similar enough to make the mistake (I hope!).
In Argentina we speak Spanish, in Brazil speak Portuguese
Hmm… the thing is, there was no "historical sipalki". It was a term coined to describe Chinese martial arts from a Korean perspective. There was no single art called "Sipalki". There was no "family style" of Sipalki, so to claim that he was teaching one raises a number of red flags. There's also very little Hapkido (I did see some similar actions, but not a lot) in your system… but that would be a Japanese art (in it's base), not Chinese… so not Sipalki either.
Again, I'm not looking to disparage your class, your teacher, or your style… all I'm saying is that what you're doing is not what would be recognised as Sipalki by the greater community, as it's missing basically everything seen there, and has a large repertoire of additional (non-Korean, non-Chinese, non-Sipalki) methods added in.
