Giron Eskrima 8: Blade & Stick Disarms Tony Somera
The purpose of this training video is to illustrate blade and stick disarms against an armed opponent. These techniques require keen hand-eye coordination and strong footwork. The aim of each technique is to successfully block, parry, grab, and lock an opponent’s attacking hand or arm in an attempt to subdue or discourage him/her from further aggression. In the Giron system, we are taught to direct hit the target with the blade, but in some encounters it may be necessary to apply disarming techniques or pass the attacker to engage oncoming attackers. The DVD provides battle proven examples of blade and stick disarms.
