    Hell yeah! Hell no!
    Thanks guys. It's not just the hand, the impact goes all the way up to the elbow - so I don't think gloves would help.
    Just to understand the physics behind this,if I could theoretically hit the tree with enough force to break my rattan, wouldn't that make a "clean" strike with no rebounding impact?

    Father Dagon - I see you're in Stockholm too. Do you practice kali? I used to do pekiti tirsia.

    Sikaranista - Cool. Have you trained in the phillipines?

    DepGW - I really like your idea. I'm gonna have to consider this one.

    plack brizzle shizzle - I don't have any double chins so I wouldn't know. But give it some time buddy, I'm sure you'll improve them with enough big macs.

    I dabbled in that style many years ago.

My gut feeling is that I should avoid this practice because it would be detriminal to my joints in the long run.



    Opinions?
    Dude, "BREAK DE TREE!!! BREAK DE TREE!!! DEES IS HOW YOU BREAK A MAN EEN HALF!!!!"

    It's not unheard of to wail hard on live wood.

    The above shot is from the documentary "Kali Means to Scrape". It's Grand Tuhon Leo T. Gaje with his nephew Rommel demonstrating the old school methods his in which his grandfather taught him Kali.

    That said, there may be a reason it's considered "old school".

    Train safe bro!

    Not yet. My previous teachers have gone over on a regular basis, and their instructors are located there. I've learned from what they have relayed in class and from the tapes they made of previous trips over there. I hope to go myself someday.

    Nice find Machette. Looks like they are swinging a filipino version of the suburito. I was actually planning on getting a regular one... Does the documentary say anything more about this particular training tool? I've trained with the sibat but this looks completely different. Man, I've got to see this film sometime.

    Sikaranista, I hope you get there someday. I had the chance to go train with my master but I didn't seize the opportunity. Must be quite an experience to train in the phils.

    The toll? Heh, it's nothing special.

    They literally pick up logs off the ground. That's it!

    It's a really nice documentary. More about the people Nick meets in the PI than it is a "training video".

    Here's a link to the whole thing:
