    zulu stick fighting apps. for FMA

    I stumbled across this on you tube, It relates zulu stick fighting to FMA. I wish it showed more of the live sparring at the end. We already do something similiar to the striking principal demonstrated in the video in my FMA club. I just think it's cool to see stick fighting styles from other non Filipino places. I like to examine the differences and similarities. I think the blocking tools and techniques used by the Zulus appear quite effective, I wonder how they'd fare against a full contact FMA assault.

    Liam Keely did a lot of Zulut stickwork. I have watched all of his video, not to mention anything else I have come across over the years. Culturally speaking this still holds an important place and is no joke when the folks really get after it.

    If I had a chance to give it a go, I would in a heartbeat. Techanically speaking the small shield/stick is a replacement for the large shield.

    If you get a chance check out Keely's articles and video, they can be tricky to find, but are well worth it.

    From what the video showed it looks a bit like some less mobile kerasak work. That said, I could definitely see how this could help you train your deceptions.

    Yeah I like the idea of leading with the butt of the stick then striking reg, or reaching.

    Cool video. Some of the strategy of rotating the wrist to get around the shield/stick reminded me of some of Anthony DeLongis' saber material, using the curvature of the blade to wrap around your opponent's block and hit them with the tip.

    It will only work against someone who blocks with minimal to no footwork at all. The palm-down witik is a staple technique in agak play of certain FMA styles in which footwork is more rooted compared to others. Same method, it starts as a regular forehand strike to solicit a block then drops as a palm-down witik to the hand or arm or head.

    This describes a huge percentage of the FMA on youtube.

    There are several possible reasons for this :
    1. Its their actual method.
    2. They are just showing the hand/arm movements without the footwork.
    3. They can't move without hurting the camera angle and going out of the frame.

    My guess would be 2 and 3 in this case
