Bad habit spinning the stick like that. You'll do it in the street, lose the damn thing and find it up your ass when you wake up in hospital. One touch on the stick from the bad guy while your spinning it and it's gone, gone, gone.

That stick spinning is just a habit he seems to have between action moves. Like part of his speech and talking between moves. That can be a habitual connection.

The spinning, or circles, twirling, arcos or redondos are big (from the shoulder) and small circle (rom the wrist), inside the arms or outide the arms - as this guy is doing.

Mainly, big or small, it is suppossed to be a double or more hit, so a decent grip must be mantained on the stick to survive the impacts of the hits.

wouldnt it be a way of building momentum? I use a heavier stick for 2 reasons, my walking sticks tend to be thicker and i like the feel of it. Plus heavier gives my wrists and forarms a workout. I too swing my stick occasionally, mainly left side, my right wrist doesnt like the stress.  It seems to me when swinging one handed, extra speed = more impact. for the moment in time that the stick is "back"  i dont think that leaves you very exposed to attack. Feel free to correct my thinking on this.       RED
