JAR-KAI? Yes or No?
« on: August 11, 2015, 10:58:50 PM »
I am on the cusp of developing a JAR-KAI form that is just what it should be. COMBATIVE. Not a bunch of fancy, useless spins that have been done to death over the years with this form.

I am (was) known in this hobby for many years for my saber forms and real martial arts based combat,  but I want to know if it would be worth my time and energy to do this? Saber combat is DEAD AS A DOORNAIL these days, and all I want to know if any further contribution of my work would be appreciated? I am a very busy person and although I still enjoy sabers, I am not as active in the hobby as I once was because it only seems 3/10 peeps really want to see what I come up with.

If you are interested, please respond. If enough replies are posted (10 or more) I'll move forward and release some free tutorials. If not, I will shelf the project.

As you said spinning has been done so I would like to see your real combative approach.

I am also interested in learning about Jar-Kai. In general not much info can be found on two swords techniques

Does my post count if I say
'I would love to see your tutorials, but I will probably never be able to put your knowledge to good (or any) use...'?

Sure. I'd love to see them. I have been doing a lot of Escrima drills lately, and would enjoy seeing a Jar-Kai form. Thanks Caine!

Wow, thanks for the replies so far.  :)

I'll give it the rest of the day and see how many others chime in as well. We'll take it from there.

One reason I enjoy working with the TPLA guys is because we're all about seeing other folks in the hobby bring new stuff to the table.  This is no exception.  Considering your escrima background (if I'm recalling that correctly), I'd be very interested to see your Jar Kai applications!

I would watch it. I'm sure there are people like me wondering how to use two sabers effectively unlike the theatrical nonsense that is usually labeled "Jar-Kai".

Yep - I'd like to see it too.  Because let's face it: polycarbonate lightsaber blades are more like escrima than swords, so this should translate well.
Do or do not. There is no try.
