    Actually, I don't think he does. I think he's stuck in elementary school, believing that sinawali is that thing that two eskrimadors do with each other when they have a stick in each hand.

    You have to admit though that he has a fancy website, that's got to count for something.

    Yeah, fighting would have been me doing a roofblock and then waking up on the ground.

    Your post contains some truth and some fallacy. Filipino Kun Tao has a 4 foot staff that rocks. It's amazing how well it fits into the overall system.

    It is painfully true that a lot of eskrimadors/arnisadors/kali players have no clue what to do with the standard 5 foot staff, but Larry Hartsell used to show some pretty decent interpretations of standard techniques with the 5 footer.

    Here's me at Beat The Crap Out Of Cancer III with the staff, against one of my students. He was a little intimidated by the staff at first, and gets a little goofy by the end.

    Ouch, sword guy got "cut" to pieces in that one...

    Would you say that is normally how these sorts of matches go between equally skilled opponents? And can the butt end of the naginata be used ?

    I've never seen Suri stickfighting's training or concepts, just the fights. From what I've seen, they like to take full power baseball bat swings at each other back and forth. I'm inclined to think that's not a very scientific use of the staff and I'll bet the power swings only thing is a cultural one, tied to manliness or something. I've fought against a guy with this strategy and beat him pretty easily, but the Dog Brothers have convinced me that hard, big-sword style staff attacks should be part of any staff fighter's arsenal.
