We had a good workshop yesterday. Before Manong Rich got there we worked on some sumbrada. We started out in largo and after a few minutes moved in to start adding in checks. After a few minutes of that Manong arrived and we bowed in.
We started the workshop with some light/slow sparring from largo distance so that we could practice evading and looking for targets from that range. So for example the person who initiates the first strike (feeder) goes for say angle 1, the receiver will evade and counter by attacking the nearest target they see available. It could be the weapon hand, it would be the live hand, or maybe its the leg. From there the feeder will counter attack and go for their nearest target right away. Sounds easy right? Maybe not right off the bat. Since we are going slow we have to time our strikes differently so that they land. It also shows what can be done to counter certain attacks.
