Poser of the Week
I can’t believe I’m giving away this kind of lock-the-door-and-close-the-drapes secret knowledge.
As I said earlier, 98% of Filipino martial arts are crap because they use “fighting stances” that leave the kidney completely exposed. The other 2% are crap because they leave the armpit exposed. Carefully observe how Punong Kahoy Guro Baliktad of Kilikili Kali guards his armpits, something many of the so-called masters out there fail to do.
By keeping the blade under the armpit you are able to keep it warm. Thousands of ignorant FMA practitioners are swinging around cold blades.
The typical opponent is so intimidated by this ferocious stance that Punong Kahoy Baliktad is able to surreptitiously shave his armpits while waiting for the opportunity to kill his opponent.
My thanks to the great folks at Kilikil Kali for sharing this with us. Remember, readers, you must use this privileged knowledge for good and not for evil.
