    thats the above pattern that I remember Manong Cacoy seminars in the states. With my personal students, I combined the forehand + 1 + backhand strike, making in 3 strikes. So: 3-1-2/ 5-1-4/ 7-1-6/ or even mix combo like 3-1-4 etc. That's a fun drill.

    Well observed. Yes this is a training reflex drill useing the 12 attack angles of CDP. In this version the pattern works through angles 1 to 12 in sequence. Partner A feeds the first two (1-2) as partner b defends (1-2) the returns the same sequence back. This works through sequence as follows: 1-2 / 3-1 / 1-4 / 5-1 / 1-6 / 7-1 / 1-8 / 9-1 / 1-10 / 11-1 / 1-12 / 12-1/. Now you can go work on it. Have fun and enjoy.

    i was trying to following the pattern of the strikes. Long time ago i thought it was libre (freestyle), then i thought it was doce pares angles 1 followed by backhand strike (angle 2). I notice the progression using manong cacoy 12 strikes, in between each strike is going back to #1 strike. So is it just John Mac feeding all the strikes, than taking turns?

    Yea, this is higher level stuff. We do sticks first so us Newbs don't get cut. Seeing a live blade and holding one and being asked to block a cut while so early in training is a true to life hair raising experience. you do get cut in training too. with sticks, you know where you go wrong but you get bruising not cuts and visits at the hospital, which does happen. Funny, painful and learning experiences
