Fighting with kali sticks never looked so good as Julius Melegrito demonstrates a single-stick disarm in this exclusive video! Learn from the Filipino fighting sticks master how to make your opponent's stick fly using simple impact and leverage!
In this exclusive look behind the scenes during a kali sticks photo shoot featuring Black Belt Hall of Fame member Julius Melegrito, you'll learn how to engage a single-stick combatant and disarm him quickly and definitively. The technique is direct and focused, which fits with the classical approach to combat with Filipino fighting sticks. "Your whole purpose in classical Filipino stick fighting is to hit your opponent until he's out of the fight," Julius Melegrito explains. "In practice, you use your stick to hit his stick as close to his gripping hand as you can manage while staying safe, but in a real fight, you'd hit the hand. It usually makes him drop the weapon. Of course, in a fight, an attempt to hit his hand might miss, which is why you must practice follow-ups."
