The stand up kickboxing game evolved and changed as the advent of takedowns and ground fighting was allowed in all sparring sessions. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu played a major and ever growing role in the daily training, and the "trapping" techniques taught by most JKD, and Jun Fan people were replaced with more effective methods of clinching and striking derived from Greco Roman wrestling and Muay Thai. Most of the "flow drills" which are typically referred to as "Kali" or "Escrima" drills, were replaced with simpler Alive drills which actually reflected and enhanced the movements which were used in real contact stick fighting. Today the Straight Blast Gym no longer claims to teach Filipino Martial Arts as such. Instead we simply refer to what we do as stick and knife fighting. The majority of our training now revolves around boxing, wrestling, and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, all of which has been adapted to work together, and in the street.
