I hope im not posting a question that has already been addressed in another post but i wasn't able to find the information i wanted through searching.
Read the following in a blog recently and wanted to know what others thought about this method of training and more importantly how long and often do you Kahig. The same for Sampi. What type of bird if any does this method work best with. We have mainly puerto rican crosses used for postiza battles.
Here is the clip..
Kahig and Sampi
Kahig is executed by holding cocks by the tail and setting them on the ground face to face, barely beyond pecking distance. In their effort to go at each other, the cocks would push and claw with their legs and feet against the ground. What is important about kahig is that it is a negative strength exercise,meaning muscles are exercised while lengthening not while shortening. Remember when the cock strikes its muscles are lengthening.
Sampi is done as continuation of kahig, by allowing the cocks still held, by the tails to barely hit each other on a controlled break. The effect of sampi is:because the cocks are held by the tail when they go at each other, they will go vertical not horizontal. This will develop their wing muscles and enhance their-instinct to break higher.
Thanks in advance for taking the time to answer.
