PostSubject: Favorite Weapon Training Routine   Mon Feb 11, 2008 9:35 pm

What is your favorite weapon training routine? Such as with a partner. Try to explain your reason why? Thanks.

Personally, I like the knife drills. There are other weapons that I enjoy doing partner drills with, but my favorite would have to be the knife. I like the aspect of developing timing, sensitivity, and the enjoyment that comes when shredding your partner with that perfect cut. Plus, I find it useful in todays society. I've had knives pulled out on me twice in my lifetime and I'm constantly hearing simular stories from other people when confrontations break out. Seems like every joe blow out there has a knife now-a-days.

So, with all that being said...Knife Drills are ranked #1 for me.

i enjoy knife play a lot myself, the drills can be fun but going live with rubber blades is a whole new game and a hell of a lot of fun.. the added realism, though not complete, makes it a huge challenge to accomplish your goals and not die at the same time. one of my favorite days of the month is our last saturday class when it's time to knife fight. I know Tony Jon and I are going to go at it and cut the hell out of each other. Twisted Evil

I forgot to add that the Jianshu work is very fun as well.. It's working a completely different range than anything else and requires different timing, coordination, and a whole new skillset.. I think of it like this, swordplay takes more finesse, and great footwork to get the job done without dieing, knifework takes not only great footwork, but great awareness, sensitivity, and hand-eye coordination. Empty hand fighting takes all of this into consideration, but doesn't stress on one more than the other...

Well, really thinking on it, hell they all take the same things, just some are more important than the other, but in the end we need them all really.. So yeah, I love Jianshu and knife play almost equally. Jeff you really should do some Jianshu if you come to visit, I think you'll really like it.

I dont know if I have a favorite. There are times I like working things out for myself. Like with the 3 section steel whip. In all honesty, know one wanted to be around me when I had it in my hands, and I dont blame them. I like the knife drills/fighting, and the jianshu. The drills because they work on speed, timing, hand/eye coordination. The knife fighting and jianshu, because they work on footwork, ranges, speed. Each one has a way of teaching me something new. It also gets me to think about how I can become better in all aspects of fu.

Sorry, no favorite.

Funny you should mention that. Danny and I were just talking a couple of weeks ago about how I would love to try that. I have some jian and sabre drills but don't get to train in them as much as I used too. We did a little combat with them off and on a couple of years ago and I throughly enjoyed it...just might have to give the jianshu a try or at least watch you guys go at it a couple of times.

Knives and batons. Speed drills, footwork drills, partner drills, and full-on going at it. Everything about knives and batons are fun.

They're the only weapons I really train to fight with anymore because I'm hyper-sensitive to what I'm actually going to fight with/against.

In my circle walking practice I still circle walk with my sword and do the Deer Horn Knife sets Danny showed me because it's just more fun stuff to do while circle walking.

This does say favorite weapon training routine. I would have to go with either the Jian shu live swordplay, or the once a month slap some lipstick on a rubber knife and try and make mike and jon look like they have been attacked by a hooker.

During our weekend together, I have to admit that I really enjoyed the Jianshu training/combat. It was a different feel with more realism than what I expected. After I realized that it didn't hurt to get hit in the head, I had balls to the wall fun!

Found the gear and plan on ordering me two sets so I can go at it against some partners around here and really understand the footwork that needs to go with it.

Mike was right on about footwork playing a big role in fighting. I seen that in just the 5 mins Q and I fought. It was an awesome experience. Thanks for letting me try it guys.

I am glad you enjoyed it. We have been having fun with it for around a year. Footwork is big. Playing with knife fighting right before you play with the jian is also helpful.

Hopefully this year at the bootcamp, Danny will bring down his protection gear and I can get to try the full contact sword fighting again. I LOVED THAT!

I've asked Jon Sales to bring some Kali to the boot camp to beat me down with. He is awesome with those things. I want to learn from him.
