Piper and Tripwire Comes To The Chicagoland Area
When it comes to African martial arts, the one system that influences, and in many ways is a part of the School of Arms, is a little-known system of knife usage, called the Piper System.
I have been training in the Piper system for many years now, under Lloyd De Jongh and I can say it is truly African; more precisely, South African in structure and movement.
Many as we know, many in the online universe, claim that it is part and parcel of some other system or somehow related to another Martial Art. Unfortunately, these people have probably seen only a very small piece of the Piper System.
So, in this blog, I am letting everyone know that Mr. De Jongh will be in the United States demonstrating the authentic Piper System movement and methodology.
Please check our website under Events to learn more. I can say once you have experienced the Piper System, it might change the way you think, not only about African martial arts, but improve your understanding of movement as a whole. It may also challenge your preconceptions of movement, or what you consider “martial art” movement as well. Nevertheless, do not take my word for it, research and check it out yourselves.
So as always, what do you think?
