As always, this is DBMA and "If you see it taught, you see it fought." There are plenty of rockin' staff fights in this DVD. Whether your mission is self-defense or high intensity Real Contact Stickfighting -- or both!-- the ingenious progression of material and the techniques selected in this DVD are designed to meet your needs.
To top it off, the training in this DVD develops a strong supple spine (extremely helpful for those that sit a lot) and increases punching and kicking power.
As with most DBMA DVD's, this shows a very SMALL set of skills. The specific Melayu Sibat move shown is effective and worth practicing. That makes this DVD worthwhile. But a whole DVD devoted to essentially that one move is rather...ummm...expensive. If you're a DB fine, you'll love this. If you already take Kali, and have worked with staff, you may feel a bit underwhelmed.
I agree with the previous rating. The material is all business without "fluff" and Marc Denny is clear and articulate as ever. all the techniques are shown in real fights, after the instructional presentation, and I have always liked the later fights with commentary from Crafty and Top Dog, as it really helps one understand what is going on, learn from it an appreciate the value of the material.
Anything and everything Dog Brothers is quality and useful!!!
