Hi, for anyone interested in practical staff or stick/baton fighting, Luis Preto just started a new blog about jogo do pau, he wants it do be open for discussion and people interested in this or related martial arts are encouraged to comment and participate.

it is also a proposal for anyone that doesn't have martial training(or does and is interested in stick fighting) to start practicing it with friends with the techniques presented, and so ask questions and explore stick fighting in a practical way.

"This blog is meant to put forward training information of Jogo do Pau, the Portuguese Traditional Staff and Baton Combat System, featuring analysis of both technique and training methods of combat against one or multiple opponents"
