Hey...check out the newest vid clip of Atienza Kali Combat Archery
Ha the drive by cracked me up.
I wasn't able to see the video, but atienza kali has always impressed me.
The other videos on the site are good, too. I like that they emphasize progress resistence and incorporate aliveness. The archery stuff is actually pretty nifty, though my only experience with archery has been bowhunting.
I've looked at a few Atienza Kali DVDs, & thought it was pretty decent for the most part, but I'm still a little unsure about multiple opponent effectiveness.Quote:

At the very least bring your own weapons to such a conflict . Which means always having something practical on you .Quote:

That's not even what I'm getting at.Quote:

or some other very dangerous weapon with considerable reach, you're going to get ganged.
Forget the fact that you have a folder, forget the fact that you've trained for years.
3+ people descend upon you with weapons, unless you are the badass of the century
(and some people are, but many are not)
you're going to be just another blood stain.
This is all barring guns of course, I am talking Melee.
I was responding to the person talking about "multiple opponent effectiveness." As far as weapon training goes, that's a dream to chase.
The best weapon you have in that situation (again not considering guns) is the fear that no one in the group coming down on you wants to risk getting within range of your blade, so they just leave you alone.
Even then, odds are slim that you will come out on top. Long distance sprinting is your best bet, and I hate to have to say this, because it's been said like eighty billion times.
(this is more directed at Jim_Jude)
I like guns and think they would be great if they passed one out to everyone at the post office .
I would rather die trying to escape than falling on my knees and hoping some one in the group is hard up for action . This is where tools like folders , walking sticks , handguns , and baseball bats would be useful .
**** trying to win ... I would be trying to live at this point and that means getting away from what ever cluster I got myself into .
I mean seriously very few people are randomly attacked by groups of people with weapons . You have to piss some people off to be in that situation ... at least in most cases . I honestly don't think it is something to train for .
Third world countries seem to be an exception to this rule , lots of mass machete cases , some seem to be very random .
Prepare for yes but to train for multiples with weapons ? Maybe occasionally . Enough to be aware of differences between fighting one and three because when you add weapons **** gets even more complicated . So I feel as if it shouldn't be a focus , unless it is a skill set you plan on using .
and yes the bow tactics shown are clearly directed towards one target thus they are just common SD and can be the Focus without fear of drifting out into LARP Land .
