    But now after training in Balintawak, I can now pull-off empty-hands techniques from Kali that I can’t before. I think the main difference now is I’m better with my defense and reaction. So if you ask me, it boils down to defense and reaction. If I couldn’t defend myself against his attacks then I really can’t really apply my techniques (with weapons or empty-hands). Of course, Balintawak specializing in single stick at corto range and heavily uses the “alive” empty-hand helped a lot.

    Thanks in advance for your response. I’m not trying to argue with your conclusion, just trying to educate myself.

    hi, i saw you post on WC and Kali thread. good post. but i'm really just curious about your statement that knife and stick work don’t translate very well into empty hands. just trying to understand, when you say knife and stick work are you just talking about using the weapon alone? Are your disregarding footwork, using range (in and out) to bait the opponent and a other things and strategies taught in FMA that are not necessarily actions made by the weapon? One time I tried “enganyo” (bait) when “playing” empty hands and it worked. If you don’t mind could you share some examples why you said knife and stick work don’t translate well into empty-hands? Btw I used to do Inosanto kali but stopped in favor of Balintawak. 7 years ago, when I was still doing Kali, Silat, JKD I also can’t use empty-hand techniques of Kali. I have issues getting inside the range and defending boxing punches etc.
