I’m, admittedly, only 1/5th Irish but on St. Patty’s day in America just knowing someone Irish is enough to be part of the clan for 24 hours.
I tripped over this video of Glen Doyle and his Irish stick fighting program in Milton, Ontario. What I really enjoyed seeing from the video was the intensity and ‘snap’ while training in a system that could be considered a ‘folk art‘ (meaning ‘home grown’ by and for the ‘people’ instead of by the institution). Like some FMA’s (Filipino Martial Arts) and Karate styles, this looks like a ‘peasant’ art that Glen is now sharing with others. Let me know what you think about it.
