This range of variance can be attributed to the conditions present during the development of each system such as the geography, the tools available, the culture in that particular region, and the predispositions and preferences of their founder. In this article, I will be discussing the characteristics of Lightning Scientific Arnis as a system. In order to do this, it is necessary to speak briefly about the founder — the late Grand Master Benjamin Luna Lema.
I have never had the privilege of meeting him in person but from images, videos and different stories, he was a tall man with phenomenal martial arts and athletic skills. Lightning Scientific Arnis is a power and impact oriented system and the training methodology reflects this.
A heavy emphasis is placed upon the physical fitness and athleticism of the practitioner since the mindset predisposes the fighter to aggressively charge in and overwhelm the opponent. In addition, there is a clear delineation between blade movements and stick movements when training.
Smashing is trained with sticks while slashing is trained with blade trainers. This article will focus on how power, speed, the concept of Serrada and physical fitness play important roles in the impact portion of the system. Fitness and endurance play a significant role as Lightning training is geared towards crashing in and bludgeoning your adversary with a rapid burst of high magnitude strikes thereby denying them the ability to strike back.
Traditionally, Lightning Scientific Arnis does not have blocks. The concept of interception will be discussed in greater detail later in this article. While it is true that a large body of fine motor techniques exists within the body of Lightning movements, this high emphasis on basic gross motor motions equips the practitioner with sets of techniques that can be executed under pressure.
The fine motor techniques should only have to be used if facing an opponent who can deal with the gross motor techniques and you have sufficient proficiency to escalate. In addition to thoroughly drilling basic motions, in Lightning Scientific Arnis a significant portion of training time is spent on physical conditioning, with speed and impact in mind. Three Facets of Serrada Serrada is a fundamental concept in Lightning Scientific Arnis and governs virtually all applications of the movements of the system.
This is not an exhaustive definition and for the sake of brevity I will refrain from going into too much depth. Still, it is necessary to have a functioning understanding of these definitions in order to recognize the circumstances where trained motions are appropriate. Motions without purpose are just dead motions. This allows you to execute a number of backhand strikes as well as charge certain attacks.
In order for your opponent to effectively fend you off, he must reorient himself and you are preventing this by constantly moving. This is done through the use of chained strikes in conjunction with checking and cramming motions as appropriate.
The opponent is not able to react or counter attack as you are commanding the timing and disrupting their balance.
Lightning Scientific Arnis- The synthesis of physical attributes with the applications of Serrada Lightning Scientific Arnis stands out as a system because of the heavy emphasis on high speed, high magnitude strikes fired in barrages as well as its concept of Serrada.
As highlighted in this article, a Lightning Scientific Arnis practitioner must be able to consistently execute high powered strikes with precision. This can only be done through constant conditioning and high repetitions of the strikes in various patterns and in different positions. The tactics you choose to apply when engaging an opponent are dependent upon both the attributes and skill sets of the fighter.
Your attributes and skills determine which tactical concept of Serrada can be applied. One application of Serrada may be applied if you have superior attributes and skills. It is easier to preempt or intercept attacks when you are much better than your opponent. The same can be said about smashing through whatever defense they raise. Another definition is applied when facing a stronger, faster or larger opponent with lesser or equal skill. Yet another definition can be applied by maintaining the backhand chamber to set up a particular set of skills.
Various levels weapon proficiency and physical conditioning are preconditions that must be met in order to successfully apply Serrada concepts. Lightning Scientific Arnis drills are aimed to develop all of these attributes. It is impossible to preempt or overwhelm your opponent without the prerequisite strength, endurance, fitness or awareness of his movements.
