My good friend John Bednarksi of Tatlo Pusaka Senjata recently hosted Lloyd De Jongh from South Africa to teach the world-famous Piper system of Blade Work.  Following is a review posted on John’s facebook page talking about the seminar:

BRIEF PIPER SEMINAR REVIEW
We are excited to have had Piper Knife Master Guardian Lloyd de Jongh out here in Chicago for a successful and very interesting seminar at the Tatlo Pusaka Senjata HQ. Few knew what to expect and in many ways we were pleasantly surprised by the material Lloyd taught. There have been some controversy surrounding the Piper system, but having first-hand experience is necessary to appreciate what it is.Piper is truly unique and is based on an African way of moving. The learning process is organic and relatively natural which can be off-putting to many of those coming from a more traditional background, but with the right amount of work and dedication, anybody can learn the system. Good blade culture is good blade culture no matter where it comes from, although some are more familiar to us than others. Piper is a breed of another kind because it comes from a laboratory of violence where people are dying every day in the experimentation process.Lloyd is a genuine human being and an excellent teacher who is able to scale concepts and ideas and tailor them to the people that are present. Piper is more than the sum of just knife work – it encompasses body movement, understanding of rhythm, positioning, and a hearty dose of emotional intent, which makes it work. So I would highly recommend anybody interested in this method train with mr. de Jongh. Those interested in training Piper here in the US, feel free to contact our school. See More

Here is a video featuring Lloyd De Jongh moving in the Piper system.  Notice the switching of the hands and the very deceptive hand and body movement.
Here is a blog post that went along with the above video: http://darkush.blogspot.ae/2012/10/the-power-of-passion.html
I know John is having Lloyd out next spring and I encourage anyone to go and experience this unique blade culture!
