    Jogo do Pau (portuguese stickfighting)

    This is an OLD portuguese martial art. I saw no thread about it here and decided to post this, specially because there are some very good videos on youtube.

    Enjoy it. The first video includes not only a demonstration, but also sparring with long sticks and short sticks, as well as 2X1 sparring.

    That civilisation may not sink,
    Its great battle lost,
    Quiet the dog, tether the pony
    To a distant post;
    Our master Caesar is in the tent
    Where the maps are spread,
    His eyes fixed upon nothing,
    A hand under his head.

    Isn´t it. I´d love to see a Dog Brothers/Silat/Whatever vs Jogo do Pau fight.

    It does look a lot like swordfighting doesn´t it?

    There's a thread kinda related to this on the Dog Brothers public forum. It's specifically about stickfighting in the Canary Island's - meh, I know the Canary islands are technically Spanish territory, but I figure there's gotta be some crossover. There are some links in the thread as well.

    I am just relating what a portuguese friend told me, but apparently Jogo do Pau is a developmente of medieval swordfighting techniques, not related to Indonesian arts.

    In fact it was rather popular as a self defense skill back in the 50s.

    This looks pretty cool, I think it looks a lot better than kendo.

    Yep, there's always a stick nearby in Portugal. They're also called 'mujeres' there.

    Seriously though, very cool.

    Hmm, interesting I wonder how much of that is based on work with the Portugese longsword. I could see the single stick techniques being based some form of Messer like weapon. But who knows perhaps it's merely based on the saber, hard to tell.
