    Hello Sanjuro_Ronin. What is the origin of the Sha Jia Quan you train in? I am just curious because I could find nothing on the internet regarding your art. Is it Chinese in origin? Is it primarily fist or grappling? Just wondering. I am just curious about your art and nothing more. Thank you. All the best. SKM

    Hi Paul,

    Please get in touch via PM or e-mailm


  6. Agreed. If you train your stick work to compliment and play off your empty hand work they will translate much better.

    Let me clarify. If limited only to your standard forehand and backhand swings and stabbing motion playing tag in long range or in medium range with minimal left hand checking, then it is very hard to translate and make those stick and knife work effective in a pure empty-hand fighting.

    But once you learn the stick and of course knife work that is based primarily on close/trapping/elbow range fighting, wherein punyo strikes, punches, elbows, knees, trapping are always part of the play then it doesn’t matter much anymore if your’re holding a weapons or empty handed. In fact in that range, you use your free hand/forearm/elbow more than the weapon. One flavor of Balintawak (my current style) even treats the stick only as a training tool to develop empty-hand skills. This is where I’m coming from when I said stick and knife work could easily transaction to pure empty-hand fighting.

    So my conclusion, certain stick work could be easy and others could be hard to translate to empty-hands.
