Philippine Martial Arts Alliance founder Julius Melegrito demonstrates a kata-like sequence of 10 knife techniques, progressively adding moves and speed until the blade is a blur!
In this exclusive video, Julius Melegrito takes you through 10 basic knife strikes from the Philippine martial arts. This kata-like sequence of knife techniques starts slow and builds momentum, culminating in Julius Melegrito executing all 10 moves with lightning-fast speed and catlike precision. The knife strikes are based partially on the clock system, referencing the 12 clock-hand positions for precise angular execution of the various knife thrusts, slices and turns. When assembled, the 10-step sequence is an impressive display of edged-weapon training in action. These knife strikes can be applied in linear sequence, individually or interchangeably where feasible, depending on the scenario you may find yourself. Julius Melegrito's Philippine Fighting Arts 3-DVD Set presents the "why" and the "how" of Philippine arts such as arnis, kali and escrima. Along with the 10 basic knife strikes shown in the knife-technique video below, Julius Melegrito provides in-depth explanation and practical instruction on proper holds, locks, chokes, striking patterns, applied footwork, weapons techniques and various forms of empty-hand training. He also addresses the anatomy and construction of the stick itself.
