I’ve found I’ve started incorporating some of my martial arts moves into my dancing! :D

“Oh my God!” πŸ˜†πŸ˜‚πŸ€£ “Do some research into that one Danny Boy! It may interest you.”

“Yeah, my Escrima instructor mentioned something the other day about Spanish Salsa taking the ‘double hip’ from Filipino martial arts. No wonder women think men who can dance are sexy… Their subconsciously thinking, ‘He can fight!’… (Although I doubt most men in the 21st century who dance are fighters)… I’ve watched Capoeira in Peru! I know the history of that… Brazilian slaves, strangling their slave masters with their slave chains, disguise it as a dance, entertain your slave masters with it before you slaughter them with the very chains they used to try and enslave you with… … I’m a fan!” πŸ˜ƒ

“Strictly Come Dancing, Danny Hurley style”

Has anybody who studied martial arts found that learning salsa or any type of dance helped them pick up learning the martial arts side faster?

All cultures have their dancing and martial arts intricately interwoven. Waltz and traditional European dances were a part of the curriculum for knights and gentlemen. The eight pointed star or compass is the basic footwork for fighting and dancing.

Filipino martial arts were hidden into their dances and Capoeira is a dance form and a fighting style.

The basic skills of movement and footwork are ingrained in them both.

And Bruce Lee was a dancer.

  1. Yeah, the only issue with taking Salsa lessons… I might just see an opening in my dancing partner… And automatically throw an elbow at her face! Then knee her in the groin! πŸ˜†πŸ˜‚πŸ€£
