    I was there, I fought, and I don't know jiujitsu.

    Saw this clip on their Facebook page.

    I understand that the double knife is supposed to be the precursor of the empty hands, but when he lets go of the knives, the movements were a lil different. Fun to watch tho.

    One question, to the kali people who might be reading this, does one have to know how to use those double knives before they are taught the kali boxing part?

    Totally depends on the style and the teacher.

    The way my instructor often teaches is to do a drill with the stick, then with a knife, then sometimes with an improvised weapon (the man loves his pens), then empty hand, all in the same class. (Edit: Just to be clear, its basically the same drill each time, just with different weapons)

    Different styles focus on different weapons and ranges though, Balintawak for example (as far as I'm aware) is pretty much all about the single stick, whereas Sayoc is all blades all the time.

    As said before, it depends on the teacher. For my part, it's completely flexible. Any time we are drilling a weapon based technique, I'll have them drop the weapons and see how the technique works unarmed or how certain concepts may carry over. Alternately, when drilling empty hand techniques, there are times I will have them use weapons such as double knives, in order to sharpen the attributes needed to make the empty hand work.

    Thank you, Fuzzy and Bodhi! I am learning a lot. Stick and knife techniques have to be understood first before going barehanded. But what if I only want to learn just Filipino boxing? Would my skills be any lesser than someone who began with sticks and knives if I really get serious? I am a big fan of the bourne movies.

    Definitely FMA-based. They move well, which always makes me a little sad when I don't see them sparring with resistance. Even the section on the video called "Free Fighting" is against no-resistance opponents.
