Many people talk about it, some may try it but here is your opportunity to do it!
Sayoc Fighting Systems Presents a Full Contact Stick Fighting “No Armor” Event!
Weekend of October 16th, in upstate Pennsylvania.
This is an open invitation to fight, all styles are welcome, no spectators participants only! Challenge yourself, to a No rules, full contact Stick fight. Matches will end when either you or your opponent is knocked out, or submits.
NO ARMOR is allowed only a mouthpiece, and protective cup.
Rattan sticks between 1"-2" in diameter 30" long
If there is enough interest a similar event can be held at your location!!
For more information go to www.Sayoc.com, and reply to the similar post on the forum.
Yes, fighting no rules no armor can be dangerous, and is not for everyone, but only fighting with armor or padding on also can be dangerous as well, and does not give the practitioner the reality test of a real stick coming in at you.
All targets are legal, this is not a tournament, but an opportunity to test ones skills against others.
All Sayoc events and training are filmed and have been since the 70's. Tuhon Sayoc has hundreds and hundreds of films, and I am sure this event will be added as well.
As for selling it? That would be up to Tuhon Sayoc.
This weekends event went off well and no serious injuries have been reported! You will be able to see some of the fights on various segments of the upcoming Sayoc Kali DVD's. Here is a quote from one of the Senior Sayoc Kali Instructors.
"Sayoc Kali focuses on "All Blade , All the Time!". A constantly evolving real
world approach on the blade.
Sayoc Kali is part of the larger organization called the Sayoc Fighting
System, which encompasses many other aspects of the FMA.
The 2004 Sayoc Stick Fights were conducted during a chilly autumn afternoon. As magenta leaves drifted lazily upon a mountain stream, all that was once tranquil were balanced by the maharlika's tune of a rattan stick whistling through the air, and its impact upon living skin and bone. The raw siena ofmoist soil invaded by crimson. Calloused hands and masks of exertion replace civilized armor. Myths are torn asunder and posturing trolls remain hidden in their warm electric havens.
The old saying that fiction can never equal REALITY is proven to be true.
Many who shall witness this footage will call it primal, perhaps even
brutal... we call it training.
