Interesting footwork clip

I found this one at the dog brothers website. It's a snippet from one of the videos. It's less than 1mb in size.

Click "Save As" on the video clip button.

I think it shows some interesting, aikido relevant footwork drills.

Agree / disagree?

Looks more like footwork drills in boxing , thought the sticks on the floor idea is pretty interesting..

Interesting - that looks a bit like the drills I do on my parquet floor. Two squares over, one up - the same pattern as a chess knight; in, out, left, right, back, pivot left, do the same, pivot right, do the same.

I agree.

Personally, I think the footwork from Filipino styles integrates very well with Aikido footwork. Different but interestingly similar ways to get off-line and into the other player at an angle.

I do some similar footwork drills at home. I'll integrate some shadow techniques with it. It's a good workout. (Like jumping rope but more fun ). I'll swing a bokken or jo or knife too. I'll throw in some tenkans in the mix as well, and some more aikido-based triangles.

The kali style I'm learning is also a close-range-oriented style, like the Pekiti-tersia stuff shown in the video. Interestingly, I was told that one of the traits specific to our style was a tendency to lift the feet rather high when stepping, rather than doing the more typical slide/shuffle step. I was told that this was to deal with uncertain terrain/obstacles as well as the possibility of using the legs as "sectoring" tools for trapping/sweeping legs. Also use high-stepping for escapes from sectoring attempts.

Hi Willy

Could you describe some of those shadow techniques? I'd love to try them.

Heh, I just mean doing techniques on imaginary people Nothing special, just whatever we were working on in class lately or whatever comes up from my imaginary partners. Pretend I'm super ronin Ogami Itto fighting a whole bunch of evil Yagyu assassins...
