Part two of the video: Martial Arts Odyssey: Kuntaw stick fighting. See it for free on


Return to Manila with Brooklyn Monk, Antonio Graceffo, to study stick fighting techniques with Kuntaw Master Frank Aycocho. As a Kuntaw master, Master Frank believes strongly in using only one stick. This way, one hand is free to use for grappling, disarming, and striking. The Master also demonstrates the grappling and throwing techniques which are possible if you leave a single hand free.


This video was edited by Andy To, the American film student, who is quickly building a name for himself as a an expert with martial arts videos.

  1. Well to me Martial Arts means respect and discipline.
    I have trained in different Martial arts now for well over 15 years.
    I have seen quite a lot of people stick around but one thing
    that I have noticed is the respect and discipline which has changed
    those peoples perception of life.
    Young kids that have started that have been on
    the wrong side of the tracks, always in trouble and no
    idea how to respect other kids. Place them in a controlled
    environment with discipline and fighting and they
    soon start to understand.
    Martial arts is a great technique for kids in their teens and adults to get rid of their aggression
    without hurting or bullying anyone.
