In this video, Doce Pares Eskrima Grandmaster Christopher J. Petrilli takes the highly evolved skill set he demonstrated in the best-selling videos Crashing the Lines and Cutting the Lines in a brutal new direction: knife fighting. The foundation is a blade form that merges slashes, stabs, cuts, and throws into a lethal flow of combat effectiveness.
Mike Stern does what he does very, very well. He has carved out a unique niche for himself among modern fusion guitarists, a vision that combines funk and R&B bass/drum grooves with skittish melodies often involving extended chord fragments. Stern's lead voice is one of the most distinctive in the genre as well, as his chorused and sometimes distorted tone is always prominently displayed.
