Stick Fighting: Inside Abaniko Variations
I usually teach to way to execute the Abaniko (or Abanico) from the Inside Position following a block: 1) If your stick stay connected to the opponent stick, it’s more natural to start the Abaniko motion going from the Left to Right (in relation to your centerline) 2) If your stick flows (line in a Sinawalli motion), it’s more natural to start the Abaniko motion going from the Right to Left (in relation to your centerline)
Of course, this was a quick note that I made during that seminar. So I hope it makes sense to you watching it. A proper Video Turorial would be more appropriate to illustrate, so I may do that in the near future.
