The bamboo baston (eskrima stick)
Most Eskrimadors move from the largo (long) range to the Medio (medium) range and begin to just stand there like it was an inviable rule fo stick fighting
Most? Perhaps in WEKAF armour. Much less so without.
Crashing is not always a sound tactic, some people will pack a knife to a stick fight. I've "gutted" quite a few people who thought that crashing in would be to their advantage
Mechanics wise, it's all about timing, placement and initiation
