Yeah, he demonstrates a little of that first, having Crafty holding a tapado stick, and then correcting the angle he's holding it at, so that his strike wouldn't funnel into Crafty's hand.

An angle 1 (Forehand diagonal down strike) can be performed to the temple, jaw, clavicle, arm, chest. Anywhere on the line.
Diesel_TKE, what kind of FMA do you do. The names for your angles are all Japanese, have you incorporated FMA strikes into JMA?
It's not an FMA per se. It is a blend of a few different styles. But JMA was my coach's primary art. Dog Brother system is very prominently incorporated throughout.

Oh, hey, those are the twelve I learned a long time back. What system is that?

Interesting. Who was your teacher? I study under Grandmaster Narrie, so I've probably seen your teacher's name on the list on the wall in his garage.

At my Pencak Silat/Kali classes we have 11 basic angles.
Angle 1 – cut/strike down left shoulder to right hip
Angle 2 – cut/strike down right shoulder to left hip
Angle 3 – cut/strike upwards left hip to right shoulder
Angle 4 – cut/strike upwards right hip to left shoulder
Angle 5 – cut/strike across the stomach/ribs on left side
Angle 6 – cut/strike across the stomach/ribs on right side
Angle 7- straight thrust pointing upwards into the breadbasket
Angle 8 – reverse thrust to heart
Angle 9 – turning/reverse thrust to base of the neck on right side
Angle 10 – cut straight down to top of the head, coming straight down to hit floor to kneeling position
Angle 11 – cut back up and out into chambered position through the groin
These are done with the stick for us. However, with a knife, we made some changes that seemed to make more sense to us at my school. For example, Angle 10 became a thrust to the throat while grabbing the back of the neck, and Angle 11 became either a straight upwards thrust into the perennial region or became another thrust for the femoral artery on the leg.
My teacher always says though, as his teacher told him, the final one is more of an "exercise angle" to perform for precision. In reality of sparring if you drop to that kneeling position you are at risk to begin eating a barrage of strikes, from not only the sticks but also the knees, elbows, etc,, depending on how mad you probably made that person you hit with the stick :gtroll:
I hope these make sense, don’t hit me if they don’t…..:YUNO:
My question is do any of you change your angles in terms of the weapon you wield in the drill? The 11 I listed at the top were done with a stick or long blade. For a knife I find that the two modifications work better (atleast for me.)
Angles, no. Targets, yes.
