Panantukan Preview (from Sama Sama 2008)

written by Bob Burgee Instructor: Guro Nick Sacoulas, assisted by Guro Victor Wong (Nick Sacoulas) "Panantukan are the skill sets used as opening techniques in Sayoc Kali. They can be taught with the knife or empty hand. They can be used against obstructions, as defensive actions such as parrying or blocking, as well as offensive actions. The application of the panantukan sets can be used on either the lead or the rear hand. It's more the motion that we are concerned with, it's not the actual application."
