MADE OF STEEL!

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.

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