Retired police officer, Fattaah, discusses his relationship with martial arts as well as the two styles of martial arts he currently practices, Wing Chun and Kali.

Fattaah (a retired police officer, actor and martial arts practitioner in both Wing Chun and Filipino Martial arts):

The movements of Wing Chun, we call it pragmatic hands meaning that in this space, I can be creative I know what I’m doing, but you don’t.

What is your interpretation of each Wing Chun form?

Fattaah (a retired police officer, actor and martial arts practitioner in both Wing Chun and Filipino Martial arts):

Siu Lim Tao means “Little Idea” but from those little ideas comes forth other ideas blocking, parrying, striking… what have you. The movements are like letters of the alphabets and it’s up to you to spell the words makes the sentence and write the book.

Chum Kiu is also known as the bridge seeking form. What is the bridge? You have a space right here, my opponent is there, and I’m here who occupies that space, who dominates that bridge they make the difference in the outcome of that confrontation. Chum Kiu teaches you how to close the gap and fight within that area.

Then you have Biu Jee, which to me is the most dangerous part of the Wing Chun.

Why? Thrusting fingers! This in someone’s eyes or even this.

In other words, if you notice, it’s a lot of sharp technique. Lots of sharp movement I call it the emergency form because even if I was to fight someone the size of, let’s say The Rock, I fear not, because I’m going to take his eyes out, that’s what Biu Jee does. I might break his nose, that’s what Biu Jee does. It’s not about size, it’s about aggression, it’s about knowledge.

What is Filipino Martial Arts, Kali?

Fattaah (a retired police officer, actor and martial arts practitioner in both Wing Chun and Filipino Martial arts):

Kali is what we consider a weapon base system. When you see people practicing Kali, with the sticks, and this was my fatal mistake. I said to myself, why would I
want to learn to use that? I’m not going to walk the street with a stick in my hand every day. No, that’s not the point, the stick is just a training tool. That stick represents anything that is of equal size or similar that you can get your hands on. Knife, stick, bottle, credit card. In case something was to happen and you had to call upon that ability, Kali gives you the muscle memory really works for you in the streets.

How have you incorporated martial arts in your career?

Fattaah (a retired police officer, actor and martial arts practitioner in both Wing Chun and Filipino Martial arts):

How have you incorporated martial arts with my career? How have I incorporated martial arts with my life! Because, it’s not just physical, it’s mental. A lot of the moves that you’d use to parry, to block, it transforms also into a mentality of how to deal with people verbally there’s verbal blocking, there’s verbal countering. To flank a situation mentally, can avoid a lot of conflict.

Why did you Join the police force?

Fattaah (a retired police officer, actor and martial arts practitioner in both Wing Chun and Filipino Martial arts):

I found the police force because even at a young age. I always had a desire to protect people who could not protect themselves and I never want for anyone to feel bullied or scared. That’s why I love being a cop.

When I was a police officer, my ability to show up on a situation and make you feel safe almost made me feel angelical.

Because it was as if God put me here for that reason to protect people who could not protect themselves, and it’s an absolute pleasure for me when I can make someone feel safe especially children. I love to protect kids. I love to protect the weak because I at one time was that person.

Is martial arts training easy?

Fattaah (a retired police officer, actor and martial arts practitioner in both Wing Chun and Filipino Martial arts):

No, it was super difficult to master anything takes time, but you know something, when you have a passion for something, the difficulty is not a factor. had a passion

I had a passion, I had a desire, because the one thing I always wanted to be was safe, and I knew that training in martial arts was the only way to guarantee that for myself or give myself a fighting chance here out in this world. A

What is the best martial arts system?

Fattaah (a retired police officer, actor and martial arts practitioner in both Wing Chun and Filipino Martial arts):

There’s no such thing as a superior system, or superior art. It is the individual. How they take that into their psyche. How they allowed the movements to become second nature to them. The Wing Chun system has always become second nature to me. Because I love the hand movement, I feel it every day if you can’t feel the movement, then it’s not for you.

What makes you fearless?

Fattaah (a retired police officer, actor and martial arts practitioner in both Wing Chun and Filipino Martial arts):

When I started training, I realized that I didn’t have to fear another human being. The thing that made a difference to me was something I heard boxer say one day. And he said something that change my life He said: “Why should I be afraid of a man, who’s a man like me?” “He can’t walk on water” “He can’t snap his finger and make thunder and lightning appear” “Therefore, he’s a man just as I “And that’s the way I feel, you’re flesh and bone just like me. I don’t care if you’re 7ft tall. What makes you dangerous? Your mind? Why? The next person don’t know what you’re gonna do. When you’re gonna do it. Or how. But when you study those three things. You really don’t have to fear much.

Last Words?

Fattaah (a retired police officer, actor and martial arts practitioner in both Wing Chun and Filipino Martial arts):

I for one never thought I had a story to tell, because I just thought my story was not interesting. My journey in life, martial arts has carried me a long way. Scenic Fights is now my format to express that, and if anyone feels the way I do, then Scenic Fights is something they should really get involved in.
