inawali, or double-stick training, is the foundation of the Filipino martial arts. This amazing training method develops striking power, coordination, line familiarity and the ability to use two weapons simultaneously. Its lightning-fast movements also hold the secrets of advanced fighting skills, teaching the practitioner to quickly identify and destroy vulnerable targets on an opponent's body the instant they become available.

In this dynamic video, best-selling Paladin authors Joseph Simonet and Addy Hernandez present step-by-step instruction in 27 sinawali drills. They then teach you how to modify these drills to include half-beat strikes, reverse-grip strikes and literally dozens of combinations and variations of the basic movements. For information purposes only.

Stickgrappler's Note: I am guessing the Paladin site will be shut down at the end of the year and I'm archiving select Paladin Press pages to my blog to preserve an essential part of martial arts from 1970-2017. Archiving some of my favorite Paladin titles.
