yes. We are learning unarmed
so I hear ya, I am starting to feel that maybe I should concentrate more on the escrima. but for now it's ok to do both. Escrima concepts footwork does feel a bit more natural and usuable for me.
:edit: I won't be quitting WT for some time tho, I get to train dirt cheap at the club just 'cause I instruct WT there. So quittin' that would be a bit uneconomic. And to be honest. I love both arts. so highly addictive
I have no idea how it was in the before time with the latosa escrima / wt thing. I have only been practicing escrima for roughly a year
But it sure seems dumb to remove parts of the system like that!
my instructors are named Bengt and Jacques (unsure of the spelling).
I train in a little school in Malmoe, highly associated with WT-center in Copenhagen; so I suppose you could say we get our teachings from sifu Lars over there, and every now and then Master Steve comes over to hold a seminar.
