My lightest escrima stick vs. a traditional bokken
People sometimes question the strength of my original synthetic sticks, the HITS (which stands for "High Impact Training Stick") which are hollow lightweight plastic. Ounce for ounce, they are arguably the toughest stick you can use, and very fast because they are so light. I've sold quite a few through the years, particularly over in Europe. Here is a video I got today of a recent Dog Brothers' style fight from Sweden, between Johan Karlsson (using one of my HITS) and his opponent, who uses a traditional hardwood bokken.
