What if it’s all about Taking Out the Slack?

July 29 @ 10:30 AM - 12:00 PM CDT

Modern Arnis without canes? Yup! This class offers a short form, Empty-Hand Anyo 1, to explore how this art seizes the advantage when someone comes close enough to land a strike. They just might end up locked and contained! Learn Trapping Hands and which entry points go with which joint locks so you can apply these applications to your own forms.

Participants will be able to

  • Utilize Trapping Hands as a fast response to gain grip on partner
  • Perform EH Anyo #1
  • Take the slack out of the opponent’s limb to find the joint lock
  • Execute a cool throw against an overhead strike
