Starts on January 9th, 2021

Purpose

The purpose of this challenge is to DAILY work on a preset striking pattern for 35 days and, at the same time, motivate as many people to join you as you can. By the end of this challenge you will have perfomed more than 10.000 (ten thousand) strikes/thrusts with an Arnis-Stick!!!

It does not matter if you are a “stick expert” or a “total beginner”, this challenge will take your skills and techniques with a stick to a new level.


Here you find the rules for participation and the process for the Arnis Strike Challenge.

Participation

Who can participate?

EVERYONE! There are no restrictions. Everyone who can hold a stick is heartily welcome to join in.

You don`t need to practice any specific style of Arnis/Eskrima/Kali or any Filipino Martial Art at all.
If you are into Ju-Jutsu, Karate, Aikido, Kung-Fu, Krav Maga or Taekwondo, you may participate just as well.

Wether you have been nominated to participate or you just want to do it out of your own motivation does not matter. The procedure and the rules are the same for everyone.

Procedure and Rules

If you follow these procedures you will have executet at least 10.011 strikes/thrusts with your Arnis Stick by the end of the 35 days.

Week 1, days 1-7

  1. Watch the video for week 1 – with the description of the first four strikes (see below).
  2. Practice the given striking combination EVERY DAY ten times (10x) with the stick in your right hand and ten times (10x) with the stick in your left hand (more is allowed!).
  3. Record a video of yourself EVERY DAY and show this combination once (1x) in your best, most dynamic version.
    (Yes, only ONCE with right OR left hand! You, your friends and followers will use your daily videos to see how your striking sequence becomes a little smoother, more powerful and more dynamic every day … – but of course only if you actually do your repetitions.)
  4. Post the video on Facebook or Instagram using the TEXT TEMPLATE below and nominate / motivate three (3) people to also take part in the challenge. You can of course add your own content and hashtags to the given text, but you can not omit any of the content or hashtags.

(Note: Of course you are “allowed” to take part in the Arnis Challenge all by yourself and without filming yourself – but then you will not receive a certificate of completion (see day 35) and you will of course not receive feedback or motivation from the community and your followers …)

Week 2, days 8-14

“The same procedure as last … week”
Proceed exactly as you did in week 1, but for this week, use the extended striking combination shown in the video for week 2 (see below).

Week 3, days 15-21

“The same procedure as last … week”
Proceed exactly as you did in week 1, but for this week, use the extended striking combination shown in the video for week 3 (see below).

Week 4, days 22-28

“The same procedure as last … week”
Proceed exactly as you did in week 1, but for this week, use the extended striking combination shown in the video for week 4 (see below).

Week 5, days 29-34

“The same procedure as last … week”
Proceed exactly as you did in week 1, but for this week, use the extended striking combination shown in the video for week 5 (see below).

Week 5, day 35: FINISHED!?

One last time: “The same procedure as …”!
Once you have uploaded your last video and completed the challenge, you will be eligible for a digital certificate of completion.

Video week 1

Week 1, Day 1-7: Basics – Basics – Basics – Basics

“Champions are brilliant at the basics.” (John Robert Wooden)

The first week covers only the two most basic strikes. The forehand- and the backhand-strike using the two major mechanics of striking. Retracting and following through.

Procedure (begin in an open position):
1. Horizontal forehand strike to the head, (retracting)
2. Horizontal forehand strike to the head, (follow through)
3. Horizontal backhand strike to the head, (retracting)
4. Horizontal backhand strike to the head, (follow through)
Start over at 1.

Each strike of this combination will be executed 385x per side until the end of the challenge.

A few tips for training:

  1. Try to execute your 10 repetitions of this combination per side in one continuous flow. Follow as seamlessly from combination to the next as possible, without any breaks.
  2. Focus for your training:
    Day 1-3: Precision in execution
    Day 3-5: Increasing speed
    Day 5-7: Maximum power
  3. Go “all out”:
    After finishing your 10 repetitions, try to continue (and get faster and stronger) until you can no longer do a clean strike, the sequence is no longer correct, or your muscles “fail” (e.g. burning of the shoulder- or forearm muscles that force you to slow down or to stop the flow of your strikes).
  4. End it clean and precise!!!
    If you followed tip no. 3 and have increased your power until you have done something “wrong” or “bad” in your execution, stop and do 1-2 clean and precise repetitions again.
    Your muscle memory cannot differentiate between “correct” and “incorrect” – and the last movement sequence of any exercise has a special meaning for what will be stored in our muscle memory. So, you should always end with a clean set of repetitions.
    Good luck!

Annotation:
The execution shown here in the video is only ONE example on how to perform this combination. Different styles use different variations in striking or body mechanics. If your style differs from the version shown here, you may of course adjust accordingly.


Video week 2

Week 2, Day 8-14: Figure 8 (Ocho-Ocho) & Redondo

The second week picks up where we left of and we will add the diagonal and the vertical circular strikes.

Procedure (begin in an open position):
Repeat Strikes 1-4 from Week 1
New add-on combination for week 2:
5. Diagonal forehandstrike down
6. Vertical circular strike down, closed side
7. Diagonal backhandstrike down
8. Diagonal forehandstrike up
9. Diagonal backhandstrike up
10. Vertical circular strike down, open side
Start over at 1.

Again, a few tips for training:

  1. Try to execute your 10 repetitions of this combination per side in one continuous flow. Follow as seamlessly from combination to the next as possible, without any breaks.
  2. Focus for your training:
    Day 8-10: Precision in execution
    Day 10-12: Increasing speed
    Day 12-14: Maximum power
  3. Go “all out”:
    After finishing your 10 repetitions, try to continue (and get faster and stronger) until you can no longer do a clean strike, the sequence is no longer correct, or your muscles “fail” (e.g. burning of the shoulder- or forearm muscles that force you to slow down or to stop the flow of your strikes).
  4. End it clean and precise!!!
    If you followed tip no. 3 and have increased your power until you have done something “wrong” or “bad” in your execution, stop and do 1-2 clean and precise repetitions again. Your muscle memory cannot differentiate between “correct” and “incorrect” – and the last movement sequence of any exercise has a special meaning for what will be stored in our muscle memory. So, you should always end with a clean set of repetitions.

Video week 3

Week 3, Day 15-21: Banda y Banda & Rompidaedondo

The third week picks up where we left of and we will add the horizontal and vertical slashes.

Procedure (begin in an open position): Repeat Strikes 1-10 from Week 1 & 2
New add-on combination for week 3:
11. Horizontal forehandcut/strike to midsection
12. Horizontal backhandcut/strike to midesction
13. Vertical cut/strike down
14. Vertical cut/strike up
Start over at 1.

Again, a few tips for training:

  1. Try to execute your 10 repetitions of this combination per side in one continuous flow. Follow as seamlessly from combination to the next as possible, without any breaks.
  2. Focus for your training:
    Day 15-17: Precision in execution
    Day 17-19: Increasing speed
    Day 19-21: Maximum power
  3. Go “all out”:
    After finishing your 10 repetitions, try to continue (and get faster and stronger) until you can no longer do a clean strike, the sequence is no longer correct, or your muscles “fail” (e.g. burning of the shoulder- or forearm muscles that force you to slow down or to stop the flow of your strikes).
  4. End it clean and precise!!!
