    Hell yeah! Hell no!

    Karambit & Scarf w/ Doug Marcaida (Lady Auslander Kills DerAuslander 2x)



    Here's the second video from Kuya Doug Marcaida's Edged & Impact Concepts Seminar a couple weeks ago in Maryland. This covered the scarf and karambit. The majority of the video is not instructional, but is Kuya Doug illustrating options. As such, it is not a training or sparring video, but a "play" video. Basic concepts illustrated & taught were drilled individually and then our of hubud.

    If you look closely in the background, you will see Lady Auslander tearing out my throat with the karambit once, and locking my arm to slit my throat later. She loves me so much.

    That's a mighty fly Cold Steel waster and targe shield in the background visible at 1:13. Too bad there's no view of the design on the front. I bet it's pretty cool. Did these tools see any use that weekend?

    You've pointed out how Kuya Doug claims it's all Sinawali, and this video really shows his theory. He's always moving both hands. Really slick and smooth.

    Yes, the sword & targe saw use as Kuya Doug related using one stick as the shield and related the mechanics to an actual shield. Though you don't see it practiced in modern FMA much, the shield and sword and shield and spear combinations were the primary choice in days of tribal warfare. So he used the targe to emphasize body mechanics for using your stick to shield against a strike. You keep the stick vertical in centerline and in close to cover you. Of course, this requires angling and footwork which I'm not sure I can adequately explain here. This was difficult for me to do at first, and I kept thrusting my arm out to meet the strike, given that my previous Kali experience has largely centered around counter-cutting. Kuya Doug was quite impressed with my shield, and told me to give my compliments to its maker.

    Indeed.
