I have finally put together my NEW and EVOLVED knife system into this online instructional video
Filmed during one of my Instructor Accreditation Seminars in Melbourne.
For more than a decade, I have been a proponent of the reverse grip; edge in method of knife use.
Always on the search for evolving my system to something better and more superior. I have transformed into the “forehand” grip.
EASIER to learn. More EFFECTIVE and INCREASED VERSATILITY.
The video goes through all facets of the system.
- Basic Posture
- SPEED ASSIST
- Lunges. THE FLÉCHE
- Fakes and Deceptions
- Timing and Broken Rhythm
- Impenetrable Defence
- Long Range to Closing In
- and more
For anyone who has ever done Floro Fighting Systems; or those curious about what it’s all about. This is the embodiment of it.
Finding a positive in COVID Many years ago, I had the chance to train with Master Ray Floro in his knife and sword method. The private lesson and seminar changed how I viewed distance management and non-telegraphic striking ever since. Master Ray is an excellent and very articulate instructor who is able to teach complex skills in a simple way. Due to COVID, this last year has given me time to re-connect with Master Ray's FFS material again. I obtained his Essential Floro Knife online class and was very happy to see the innovations made. Ray continues to teach a treasure of skills that are easy to apply in sparring and connect to your other arts. Re-connecting to his curriculum has been a bright spot this past year. I recommend his classes to beginners and advanced practitioners alike.
