I am a beginner at arnis/kali/eskrima.
every meeting, I always expect some blisters on my palm and finger, especially after hitting the tires with the stick.
I won't quit just because of blisters, but is there a way to escape from them? Aside from wearing gloves because it makes the stick so much slippery.
a video or picture of the proper way of gripping the stick, or just some tips will be greatly appreciated. thanks!
Thanks. I am now convinced that I need to train regularly. I only have time during saturday and sundays so i only train during those days. since a week is enough to let my hands heal completely, it never develops calluses. Might as well ask for some advice about the position of my blisters.
Sometimes, I see myself holding the stick with my four fingers wrapping the grip, and my thumb locking it, as if making a fist. At most times, I hold it with my thumb on top of the other four fingers.
here are the position of my blisters:
