    Dredging my memory on this subject, I think that the seated demo. was said to have been based on a traditional sabre fencing drill (intended to isolate defensive skills with the stick itself, divorced from footwork) and adapted to JdP sometime in the late 19th century.

    interesting. Frequently with these things, the drill is not the fight but it's what people really enjoy seeing.

    What is nice is the camera angle shows how much the standing guys is moving heel/toe in his weight transfer. The long stick is a bit safer than a short one since you can defend further out, but the attacker is swinging hard. Impressive.

    Is anyone picking up their pattern counts? Upper rt-lower lft, upper lft-lower rt etc...??
    Many things we do naturally become difficult only when we try to make them intellectual subjects. It is possible to know so much about a subject that you become totally ignorant.
