Sharing some notes from one of my classes for anyone interested in other stuff evolved from stick fighting.

We did some work this week on techniques evolved from banda banda and one of these is crossada which is basically an openhanded technique against a punch or a weapon ending in a takedown.

Very nasty. I love it.

As this is an open handed variant of banda banda, students should be fluent in banda banda before attempting crossada.

Key points are to ensure that you trap well with the other hand before using the other to grab the wrist to avoid them snaking out of the initial hold/block.

Technique 1 ends up as a variation of the seiunchin armbar yatsuko but involves a spin under the attackers arm. You can either step forward or drag them backward to place more pressure and force them onto the ground. Keep the trapped wrist close as in all locks so that you have max advantage.

Technique 2 is basically a spin into a throw, however you end up with the attackers back to you so could be a nice armbreak as well as dislocating their shoulder. I can see it may be difficult with much larger attackers so you'd need to be careful and perhaps roll them around your body instead of dumping them over your head and shoulders.

Mr Pat O has a clip on youtube about their (Rapid Arnis) versious of crossada. He demonstrates it mano-mano, single stick, double stick and espada y daga.

Thanks for sharing this Mike!

Lots of nice watiks, and some really interesting variations on that clip.
