    Hi Guys,

    My name is Rob Lovett and I have been interpreting and translation Fior di Battaglia for a few years now.
    I find the system laid out in Fior di Battaglia one of the most complete that I have come across.
    If anyone is interested in this, then please do not hesitate to ask.
    Also, we hold workshops every two months, the next on the first Sunday of April. If anyone is interested then please do not hesitate to ask, it is going to be on knife.
    Also, we will be at SENI04 so please look us up on the BFHS stand. We will also be demonstrating.

    Can you expound on the Canarian Juego del Palo? I've seen a few illustrations of the art, but never an in-depth or somewhat general description of the history of this art. Also, is it similar to the Portuguese Jogo do Pau?

    Thanks much,

    Canarian Juego del Palo Stickfighting

    Hi ValeTudo

    From the little I have seen the Canarian style reminds me of Quaterstaff fighting, whereas the Portuguese looks like it's based on double and single-handed sword techniques...
    I hope to get some input from a couple of practicioners from both styles to write a piece for MAP, so keep checking in.... :D

    For a more in-depth description;

    Luta Livre

    Mapper SoKKlab wrote on a previous thread:
    Luta Livre=means Free Wrestling, or Free for all wrestling.
    Luta (Wrestle)-Livre (Free) in Portuguese. Similiar expression found in all the Latin Languages.

    I know it's very popular in Brazil and there's some rivalry with BJJ......

    Anyone out there with a background in this art able to post a thread?

    Louie :D
