After having trained informally in Balintawak Arnis (Formalised by Grandmaster Bobby Taboda) for 3-4 Years. I finally had a formal lesson with my Karate Sensei's Sticks Instructor, and oh boy that was fun.

Like when you do an exercise in class that leaves you sore for a few days because of the difference in how you used the muscles throughout your body. It was exactly the same for this sticks class.

How you ask?

Balintawak Arnis is predominately done with One Stick in your Right Hand, and most of the drills or exercises that are done involve rotation or different angles that directly impact your Forearms and Upper Arms.

For most people; the muscles in your forearm are accustomed to Flexion and Extension due to the wrists, fingers + elbows. Yet not accustomed to the rotation that is done by the muscles and joints.

Would I do this again

Of course I would, and is a tonne of fun.

It sounds like a good time! I'd love to be a part of a focused stick class.
