MOTION MONDAY: Modern Arnis Minute with Datu Tim Hartman (Baston Anyo #2)

Happy Motion Monday!

Today we're featuring the second of the baston anyos (or stick/sword forms) of Arnis.

This is by +Datu Hartman at the WMAA as part of "The Modern Arnis Minute" series.

This form is pretty short, the shortest of all, but it has some basic movements that translate very well to the blade (as you can see).

One note - Datu Tim shows two versions here - the "original" version (which is very, very similar to the way we do it at our school), and his own WMAA version.  Different players and different organizations may do the anyos slightly differently from one another, and this is normal, as there is no single right, standard way.
