The Canarian Stick Fighting, "Lucha del Garrote", is one of the archipelago's best-known combat traditions, possibly due to its extensive participation in international events. A centuries old Martial Art that has been transmitted from generation to generation, and that has come down to us thanks among other things to the over 40 years research and rescue work carried out by Grand Master and investigator Jorge Domínguez.
In its efforts to disseminate this martial and cultural heritage, the Canary Stick Fighting Federation, that is, the "Federación de Lucha del Garrote Canario" (in acronyms, FLGC), presents this second work, in which its President, Grand Master Carlos Barrera, shows part of the official program corresponding to the Third Star (3rd Dan), dedicated to Hooks or "Embuchados". We will start with the basic hooking, the "Regatón" to our opponent's "Burra", the way of training them, as well as some variants and applications, and their cons. We will also see hooks with the tip and some variants, the "Volcadas de Garrote" or "Envolcadas" and their cons, hooking from below, finishing with "Zapatas" or "Trabas" (takedowns), and some hooks from the outside with "Pinzas" and "Majadas" with great effectiveness in combat. We could not resist including some hooks with change of hand since they are our favorites in combat, despite their difficulty.
