Style: Kung Fu Swordfighting
I've just found the Bigfoot of martial arts footage: Someone using a three section staff, in a live sparring session, and with
a fair mount of adroitness to boot.
The fighter goes through a variety of grips on his tricudgel, and even manages to wrest the spear from his opponent's grasp a couple times. It's too grainy to see the details of the disarm, which is a shame, because I'd really like to get a clearer idea of how he's doing that.
I was saying in the hook sword thread that the CMA community could learn a ton by acting more like the HEMA community (ie, fighting with their weapons instead of just doing forms with them), and then lo and behold, I find this gem.

The fool thinks himself immortal,
If he hold back from battle;
But old age will grant him no truce,
Even if spears spare him.

...and then I forgot I posted on bullshido where, this asshole, IiF will inevitably point out someone else has posted 3-sectional video by this group.
Fixed. No Bigfoot.
The hood mentality is crippling disease, that attacks your nervous system. It makes you nervous of the system. Gangsters and hood rats are especially susceptible to this growth stunting mentality.

Dog Brothers regularly have at least one dude with a three section staff.
