[QUOTE]Originally posted by JKogas:
Sorry for the delayed response, I've been away for a bit.

These styles were originally influenced by kali/escrima, but in truth, it's just the style of "hitting with the stick". That sounds funny, but it's true.

I was influenced by the Dog Brothers when it came to stick fighting. Then I adopted Burton Richardon's approach to it and that's where I've stayed. It's stripped down without forms/katas, etc. Just straight out training with sparring and equipment -- just like our approach to empty hand stuff.

Our empty hand versus the blade (STAB -- Survival Tactics Against Blades) comes from Karl Tanswell in the UK.

How much Dog Brothers do you use John? Ive seen you mention them before.

Javaman,

[QUOTE]Originally posted by javaman:
I would have to say that if you want to compare any chinese weapon to a European Falchion, then the chinese broadword would be a better comparison.[/QUOTE]

I would have to concur on that point--the falchion is essentially a saber variant, as is the Chinese dao.

[QUOTE]Mind you all three of these are great weapons and I have trained with all of them.[/QUOTE]

When you say you have "trained" with the falchion, what exactly do you mean? Are you talking about employing a falchion in an existing martial art, or are you talking about studying a reconstructed Western martial art?

Just curious.

Peace,
