    I think the names got somehow lost in translation due to different phonetics between english and filipino (which uses a latin based phonetics). It's palusot not palasot and panuntukan not panantukan.. They are from the root word lusot and suntok. Meaning to "get through" and "punch". Lasot and santok doesn't mean anything in filipino. I just thought I'd let you know. 🙂

    The lady has got to stop bending over when getting passed. One of the Guros I used to train with used to grab the back of my neck and straight thrust when I did. It happens to fast to react to it.

    Im a former USN IDC detached to USMC 15thMEU/2nd Rec. Having grown up in Manila and Quezon city as an American, I was forced to learn eskrima and other forms of close quarter combat. This training was an asset to me with my deployments in both Iraq and Afghanistan, as I knew that my knife was an extension of my arm.

    I say it a lot when watching FMA – this is so similar to Wing Chun moves (Nook Sau drill in this case). The drilling is often looked down to with comments on real life, but the truth is, it engraves the reactions – even after 10 years of pause I have not forgotten the essence of the moves, even though my form is long lost.In real life, you only can use the essence, given the speed and your mental situation. I would assume this is even more true when blades are involved. This being said, I am very skeptical about various disarms and advanced techniques told too soon and too much. The new techniques and fancy disarms are nice and entertaining, but this is the core which can save your life one day. keep up the good work guys
