“When is anyone going to use sword fighting in the 21st century?”
That’s NOT what Filipino martial arts are about. It transitions into a stick, a knife, a rolled up newspaper, an umbrella, a cap, a pen… Its the same principles.
But when it comes to sword fighting… I could study this as a hobby… Not as self defence. Sword fighting from all over the world, at different points in history. Different swords, different styles of fighting…
Just the sound of steel on steel!
Blocking (never using the sharp edge of a sword… The face)
I want sparks!!!
