Working With Weapons, The Staff. The very first weapon I ever held in my hands was a staff, which is a long wooden bamboo stick in which you do forms with and also spar with in Sil-Lum Kung-Fu. Martial Art Flashback.
How I Got Into Martial Arts. One of my bosses I worked with at my undergraduate school got me into martial arts. He said that he thought I would like it. I started in 2002 in Boone, N.C., at the Blue Ridge Kung-fu Arnis Academy. Martial Art Flashback.
Side Hair Grab with Scissors Takedown. This takedown may sound complicated but it isn't really. It's all in the legs. My favorite part of Sil-Lum Kung-Fu classes were the kicks, because I love to kick. Martial Art Flashback.
My Favorite Martial Art Weapon of Choice. When I first started my martial art training in Sil-Lum Kung-Fu in 2002, the first weapon I was trained in was the staff. The second form of weapon I was trained in was with wooden blades - using the real thing can kill somebody, and that was not the intention in martial art class. Martial Art Flashback.
