292videos of the 1st H S F A gathering in Houston TX
- Jan 15, 2007These videos were submitted to youtube.com by Leo Quitalon of his students in his Sugarland Lightning Arnis group, Kali-Kilat. Leo's got an active group of young enthusiastic fighters as you'll notice in the videos. There were so many different ages of players in the mix that day. An even number of ages from 17 to 65 years old! This day was a day for those that really loved to apply what they've learned to their matches, and had so much fun. The matches did range from padded stick, rubber dagger, to live stick and even longsword from the Western MA. A new change that will take place in the next gathering will be to make it optional to wear the big padded vest used in WEKAF tourneys. Good. I hate using those things. Some matches will be designated in a new division as "stick only" matches due to some of the participants from the 1st meet that never grappled in a stickfight before. They want to stay as 'close to home' as they can. There will also be open divisions where everything including punch, kick, knee, elbow, box, throw and ground and pound and submission will be included. Padded vest or no vest with live stick.
These matches were filmed on November 26, 2006 at Hermann Park in Houston Texas hosted by the Houston Stickfighting Association headed by [student of Tim Mousel] Johnathan Bolton and Manong Joe Galleon.
Oh... and before I forget, the next upcoming Houston Stickfighting Association gathering will be on Saturday, March 3rd. More details TBA....
