Total Serrada Eskrima Block Listas taught by Grandmaster Angel CabalesandSTRATEGIES in LOCK & BLOCK Drill:
BLOCK LIST OF SERRADA ESKRIMA SYSTEM,and the Structure of Serrada Eskrima:COUNTERS AGAINST THE TWELVE STRIKESAS THEY ARE DEFINED IN THE ORIGINAL SERRADA SYSTEM:by Khalid Khan&All blocks described below end in the LOCK Position after theblocking movements are finished. If the block is done to theright side of your center line, then you have to do a hit to thetop of the opponent's forearm/hand and do a cross-checkwith your stick at minus 30 degrees angle and then bring thestick back to your waist in Lock Position. If the block is doneto the Left of your center line, then you have to do a circularsampling of his next move, by bringing your stick to thebottom of his forearm/hand, and then circularly moving it tothe top of his arm and then bringing the stick close to yourown body (the waist), then adjusting your position andstanding in Lock position. In order to do each block, properdistance between you and the opponent is required so thathe is fully seen by you. Normally, you require two feet of distance between you and his weapon holding hand as youare applying your counter. Depending upon previouspositions of your stick and the stick of the opponent, thereare many blocks per angle in the Serrada Eskrima system.Angel Cabales always said: "The secret to Eskrima is strikeno. 1, it is the key." meaning if you understood strike no. 1you understood the rest.For reference to the strike angles:
SERRADA STICKFIGHTING BLOCK LIST:STRIKE NO. 1:1. Front Cross Block: done mainly against a strike no. 1 that is coming vertically down to your head.2. Inside Block (the Inside Sweep block), done mainly against a strike no. 1 that is coming slightly slantedin angle to left side of your face, or to your left shoulder.3. Front Cross Block, & pull down to sector 3.4. Step outside, no. 3 attack to opponen's waist, make finger hook [jari] technique to create a L capture.5. Step outside, no. 5 attack to opponent's waist, make finger hook [jari] technique to create a L capture.6. Step outside, your stick pointing downwards, outside hand hit, finish as side-block counter against strikeno. 2.7. Step outside, inside hand cut.
8. Bring your stick to touch bottom of opponent's weapon or his forearm, empty hand pass with your lefthand, go over his arm as it is passing by, finish like side-block counter against strike no.2.9. Inside Block, 90 degree hook, go outside from underneath opponent's arm, finish counter like a side- block against strike no. 2.10. Elastico: step backwards with your left foot, raise your stick from the ground up and hit the opponent'sarm from underneath, pulling all the way across to the floor on the other side and then raise from the floor again and hit the opponent's arm on the top, if he tries to do a abaniko to your hand, do a reversal bysupplying strike no. 6.11. Stickey-stick block: step same as in inside block, hit your stick to the opponent's stick, slide downwardsto his hand.Additional Blocks:12. Step Outside, hit with your own strike no. 7 to his neck or eye. Use jari technique.13. Step Outside, hit with your own strike no. 7 to his neck or eye, but keep your stick inside his right arm.Use jari technique.STRIKE NO. 2:In case he his delivering his strike no. 2 leading with the stick, and not with his fist [short end of thestick/puno], you can use the following blocks.1. Side block, step in with left foot.2. Wing Block: hold your stick facing downwards but mostly parallel to the floor outside your shoulder.Use your left hand to bring or guide his stick onto your stick and then use the energy generated from theclash of the two sticks to suddenly release your stick and strike at the opponent's wrist. This block can bedone several ways.3. Front Cross block, use your left hand to capture the opponent's incoming strike no. 2 [a backfist typeattack], pull down to sector 3.4. Step Outside, use your stick to attack his waist (strike no. 3).5. Step Outside, use your stick to attack his waist (strike no. 5).6. In case he is delivering the strike no. 2 leading with his fist, or using the short end of the stick [puno],you can use your left hand on his fist, and then bring your own stick from outside to hit his forearm bone insmacking form, thus weakening his strike.STRIKE NO. 3:1. Basic Cross Block: in this block you step a little to your right, and bring your stick facing downwards,and bring your left hand behind the stick in a cup position.2. Advanced Cross Block, pass with hand: In this block, you step backwards with your left foot in order tocreate space necessary to pass the opponent's incoming weapon across your waist area, and then apply a basic cross block as described above, but raise your stick a little bit, and use your left hand to pass his stick rightwards. There are a few other blocks from the basis of this "Advanced Cross Block" withmultiplications into other moves.3. Empty hand pass, stick at chamber: in this block you keep the stick at the chamber position (standingnear your face on the right side), and use only your left hand to pass the incoming strike no. 3. Mostimportant is the stepping of sliding your triangle backwards in order to create space for the opponent's stick to pass across your waist area.4. Empty hand pass with "double-double": in this block you start as if doing the basic cross block againststrike no. 3, but after hitting the opponent's stick you take it all the way to the floor, and then bring the rightfoot together with the left foot, then change foot as you raise the stick from the floor coming circular upwards from behind and hit the opponent's arm again. This is a classic Angel Cabales "double-double"move.5. Witik: this is a strange and powerful block. You slide backwards with both feet, raise you stick upwardsand bring it into a hook created by thumb and forefinger of your left hand. Keep your right hand wristloose, now use the hook created by your left hand to push upwards and the stick will strike downwards withforce.
