    I love working with weapons, we don't do much in the last year though for some reason.

    Only about four months now.

    Also forgot to mention another category above:

    Grappling - I guess is what you call it. In the transition from white to yellow tag people must learn seven aggressive takedowns and sixteen self defence moves. At later belts takedowns against punches and kicks are taught as well as throws.

    Bingo! The really annoying thing (which defies the point of me starting this thread) is that over Christmas I forgot to bring my Staff back up from the south!!!! :cry:

    Well... See you on Thursday I guess? :D

    Nah. I might come through to Durham on the odd weekend. I train at Sunderland. We are preparing for the competition so i might attend the Durham class saturday more often.

    I have been to Durham a couple of times recently, i went there two weeks ago. Where you there?

    I snapped my stick...

    Or Okinawan... or Chinese etc...

    It's a Korean art undisputably. But it probably takes another country's systems and incorporates them into it's own. I think (if the Jang Bong is not Korean descent) then it probably comes from China as the style I am taught is more like Kung Fu than Kobudo.

    If you are interested in staff Alexander you might want to take a browse through the western forum. A lot of the people there hit people with big sticks. Also some of us FMA people like big sticks. I've sparred with staff a couple of times. :eek: Very scary. Even with a big helmet on taking a staff hit to the head rocks your world.
