    Default Kempo Tanjo or Philipino Escrima...

    I know that alot of the tanjo (short stick) training in kosho comes from the FMA (or at least the stuff I have seen comes from serrada escrima.). Does any of the other Kempo systems out there teach tanjo techniques based on indigeonous Japanese techniques or do they all come from other sources (either because they are superior or because they lacked them in the beginning).

    The Japanese base some of the noble stick (expandable baton) training they do in modern police tactics on the use of the jutte.

    The tanjo-waza that I have seen that claims Japanese ancestry seem to be a hybrid of hanbo training and of the yawarra / kappo stick training.

    Any thoughts?
    Regards,
    Walt

    When i first started studying kempo, my instructor taught us how to use the koppo, but it did not have a finger loop or anything. It was just a short cylindrical tool for applying pressure to various points.
    aside from that it was sword and jo.

    Bruce Juchnik is very senior in FMA and a lot of it came from there. He then added a Kosho flavor to his stuff.

    Only once or twice at seminars. He changes some of the skating and mody angles to fit more with Kosho.

    We did some Kali a couple of weeks ago in class. I study a version of Inosanto Blend and it was kinda fun to see the "kosho" take on FMA's.

    No, not yet. I am still too new. I have been practicing FMA's since 93-94. Some time around there. I have a pretty good base on those for the moment. I am just starting out in Kosho so I have to make sure that I keep my eye on the ball as it were. I might branch out later and see what else Mr Juchnik (man did I butcher that one) has to offer but I think for the moment I will just "let my Kosho happen."

    I know that in some systems, the hanbo is used and the tanjo is used more like the yawara, a controling implement. The Hanbo can be used like a sword so that makes sense for a lot o the japanese systems. The tanjo could theoretically be used like in similar fashion to the wakiashi in the way that it is swung but the two are employed differently.

    I am just curious to see if the Kenpo/kempo community went to the Japanese swide of the house or the Philipino side for its stick techniques for a weapon in the 25 to 30 inch range.

    Regards,
    Walt
