MOTION MONDAY: Kombatan Sinawalis

IT'S MOTION MONDAY!

Today's video should be fun, especially for those of you who know play sinawalis but haven't seen some of the common ones taught in Kombatan.  My teacher has included all of these in our curriculum and I really enjoy them.

Note that Kombatan performs a very deep chamber (compared to some other styles) - I tend to chamber closer to this way versus a shallower chamber, mainly because, as you can see, as you speed up, the deeper chamber tends to naturally get shallower. This helps me avoid "windshield wiping" (keeping my hands out in front of me to be hit).

Enjoy!
