Nano reef keeping is just as it sounds I have a full fledged salt water reef tank of all of about 8 gallons.apporx 30 liters when you factor in sand and live reef rock the displacement drops to 4-5 galons total water volume 15 to 18 liters total water volume.

Howzit Bobby,
I do both. I was fortunate to learn this art from the old school of training. My dad came from the Philippines in 1946. He was one of the last of the contract immigrants to work the sugar fields in Hawaii. With him came a lot of Escrimdors looking to start a new life on Maui. A lot of these Escrimdors fought the Japanese when they invaded the Philippines. Back in the old days the Filipinos were very secretive about there arts so they would practice at night some times under the moonlight. We all lived in plantation camps and they would come over my dad's place to practice. I remember back then, looking thought the window watching them practice and my mom would say "Boy, go away!! You no can do this yet!!" Do you practice Kali/Escrima?

Mag-ingat Ka,

nah - I'm a wing chun man. I love the phillipino styles though and if I had the time and money I'd look into them. there's some very good teachers around here. More interested in the open hand stuff than the weapons stuff though. ots of similarities with wing chun. thinking of doing some aikido for the locks and throws too. how long you been practicing?

I've been doing this for awhile now. There's a misconception about Kali/Escrima because most fighting arts starts with hand to hand training. Where as Kali/Escrima they use Escrima sticks or Espada y Daga and from there transcends down to hand to hand. Because the movements are almost the same with weapons it's faster to learn hand to hand. There's also locks and throws in Filipino fighting arts, you just have to find the right teacher.

yeah - it's an interesting difference doing it weapons first, but then my wing chun teacher says that it's bleeding obvious really - they all grew out of battlefield combat, so weapons are obviously first. There's a quite renowned teacher near me, but alas, wing chun twice a week and a boxing class, plus maths lessons and a full time job means my time is very limited. do you know how similar kali escrima is to silat? I've sparred against a VERY good silat man and it was awesome.
