Sayoc Kali just posted a new video regarding blade drawing on Youtube. It is a trailer for the upcoming Sayoc Sama Sama 2010 DVD. This short clip on blade drawing features Sayoc Tuhon Tom Kier lecturing just before a training session at Sama Sama. He discusses the importance of transitions – being able to draw your blade from a holstered position in an effective manner. This, Tuhon Tom describes, as one of the “key elements to being a high-level weapons practitioner.”
This mindset applies, of course, to ANY weapon. It is common to see firearms practitioners training thousands of reps on just the draw. Why wouldn’t you put the same emphasis on any other weapon with which you train?
Tuhon Tom Kier is the Director of Sayoc Tactical Group which focuses on the warrior mindset for military and law enforcement combatives.
