Sep 5, Messages: Curious fsgrima to why the demo participants were in a weapon side back lead vs the old photos in the beginning and the end with the participants engaged with the weapon side forward Nov 7, 3. Nov 7, 4. The original video didn’t show any changing of the lead but I would think there would be in order to keep the body at range to the opponent’s blade when attacking yet having the shielding action of the poncho forward to defend the esvrima attacks and again keeping the body away from the attacks.

Keeping the weapon side back when attacking brings the body much closer to the opponent vs weapon side forward. Nov 9, 5.
