    Agreed. Hopefully one day most of us will have some sparring footage up for mutual critique.

    Hey, thanks for posting your vids.

    Aside from what has been mentioned,
    I'd like to ad that your footwork seems
    to have settled into a class "habit" when
    sparring. The lack of multiple techniques
    seems related to that particular rhythm.

    Are you afraid to get hit? You seem to
    flinch with every one of the opponent's
    movements. Not only are your attacks
    linear, you take a linear line of retreat.

    My buddy and I used to practice outside
    of class without any padding, with real
    sticks. Drilling specific things like has been
    mentioned, but, just getting the feel of a
    stickfight, and contact. You need that.

    Start practicing moving forward as the
    opponent attacks, use your footwork,
    and parry techniques to get comfortable.

    Good luck, bro!

    Good point- What kind of footwork does your system drill?

    Thanks for all the comments. I'll reply better later, and as soon as there is a new video footage I'll post here.

    Whosthemaster you've motivated me to post some of my "sparring" vids. I just started to incorporate some full contactwith an FMA newb I know, technically were not really sparring its just a garage cell phone vid of a guy trying to beat me with a stick while I defend. But I need some feedback.

    Did you say you don't use rattan? Or was that just for sparring?

    Apparently they can't get it affordably......which sounds odd.

    Brazil is an odd country, believe me. The thing with the rattan is that it would have to be imported, in the mid 90s my teacher was trying to produce the sticks locally but not even rattan furniture was made here. He came up with the polypropilen solution and we've been using it since. It's not as beautiful as rattan but it's cheap and durable, a pair is about US$15 and I've been using the same for about three years. I have a pair of actual weighted rattan sticks for solo practice too.

    Would you say looking at your own videos, that your sparring looks like your drilling?
