GIRON ESCRIMA (Vol-4)
By Grandmaster Tony Somera
Estilo de sonkete is a thrusting and poking style using such rigid weapons as a bolo, panabas, or baston (stick). In this style, the escrimador thrusts his weapon into an opening in the opponent’s guard. This is accomplished in several ways. First, you can parry the opponent’s weapon with your left hand and thrust your weapon into the created opening. Second, you can block the oncoming weapon and slide your own weapon along your opponent’s until the point of yours makes contact with your opponent’s body. Either way, to make this style effective, the escrimador must use sidestepping to first evade the oncoming strike.
