Cuts and Strips

Please...if you like coming, lend your support!  If you benefit from what you find here, show your appreciation with a contribution.  Doing so will assure our continued presence on line, and expansion into new areas of interest over time.  We have many plans and ideas for the future, but will require significant upgrades in video recording equipment, software and computer hardware, on top of the increasing expenses for web volume and throughput.  As it stands, we are extended to the limit of available resources.

Over the years, I began to develop my own philosophy regarding streamlining techinques where ever I could.  The videos below are a good example of where this process led.  Early on, blocks were very methodical, almost by the numbers, and in some respects, plodding.  As is the case with everything, the more you practice, the better you get at it ... and that was the case with my Arnis.  What started out as slow and laborious, became quick and efficient.  My own instructors, particularly Master Archibeque, made it clear that proficiency wasn’t enough ... I had to keep pushing the envelope ... to leave behind something which improved upon what was originaly given to me.  This overview of Cuts and Strips is one example of how that process becomes a reality.
