What I don't see in this video is a basis for power generation, I see lots of flicky hits but no crushing power shots, and that is important if you are going to actually use a club.
    In my own experience with Kali-type sparring, I've learned to evaluate beyond the flash, to the center, while asking the question, "Could I take that hit? Can I get whacked with that, and keep going?"
    Clear mind, clear movement. Mastery of the Arts is mastery over the Self. That in this moment, this motion, the thoughts, memories, impulses and passions that cloud the mind must yield to the clarity of purpose, and purity of motion.
