Couple of questions to discuss: 1) What do you call the empty hand component of your practice? This is just idle curiosity. My previous schools have used a few different terms. Mano mano and pangamot in Doce Pares. Panantukan in Inosanto Blend. I believe the Modern Arnis folks also use mano mano. But I honestly don't remember at the moment. 2) Here's the real question. How do you train empty hand? Primarily through drills (e.g., hubud)? Abedecario? Sparring? Do you do empty hand versus empty hand primarily? Or versus weapons? If you're sparring, what equipment do you use? Does empty hand tend to look like anything else? How about the sparring? What's distinctive about it, if anything? Does it look like muay thai with guntings added in? Etc. Have at it.
