Tongkat Tribuana, Granara Workshop Italia, 2010.

Tongkat Tribuana = Kondari Tribuana (greek word) = Bâton Tribuana,= Stick Tribuana = Bastone, ....

Salutation Tongkat Tribuana:

What are the "work" in Tongkat Tribuana (Kondari Tribuana?)
Tongkat = Stick (Wood).
Tongkat size: length from feet to third eye (eye brows),
weight: around 1150 gr = 1,15 Kg.
So Tongkat is a personal size, personal character. Tongkat is a "sleeping master", so the Tongkater must awaken its secret, by practicing regularly.
  1. Meditation in a sense: stand still erectly vertical, feeling your back bones strait, as a clean  direct link between sky and earth, light and matter, GOD CREATOR and all its creation.
  2. be open, humble, simple & essential in attitude to be able to follow an itinerary / "parcour", a path-way of the stick's flow, as it articulate you, as you articulate/move it. This attitude is a basic condition for "actor-servant" of Tribuana opinion, can be use as guide how to work with mask, with words, with emotion, with character that plays you (you play it ...).
  3. Exercise for suppleness of muscle, body, mind to be always resistance, re-exist in any situation.
  4. Work in group, group work. Stick as an object that link you, together to make a mandala, how to keep the form of mandala designed by all stick together. To keep mandala's image, by all participants/actors making movement, dance, sing in improvisation. be in joy, to enjoy.
  5. work in making rhythm together or alone, rhythm beat per minute (bpm), as a circular form of stick movement that create cyclic count, rhythm to enjoy. 
Basic form of stick/tongkat mandala:
  1. With 3 stick, 3 peoples makes triangle, 
  2. Group of 4, make square, 
  3. 5 peoples, makes pentagon
  4. 6 peoples can be considered as 2 group of 3, or 3 group of 2.
  5. etc.
Tongkat, stick, is an exercise I create for health, meditation, group work. I was started when I did my daily tai chi in Park Buttes-Chaumont, Paris 19eme, Metro Laumière, I was lived at rue Cavendish, nearby. In Doing my invented exercise, some one ask me, if I would teach him, and asking : "What is the name of this "art" ?". I simply said : The stick, Le Bâton, later I put a name: Tongkat.
He ask me also, who is the master?  What is his/her name? I simply point out the stick.
it was in 1987 ..... if my memory still good.
Yes, "stick" (Tongkat, Kondari, bâton) is the master. Answering so by reflex, I realized that i am just a servant, the one that serve the will of the master: "THE STICK, TONGKAT, O KONDARI, BATON, ....".

Based on this attitude, a sticker /a Tongkater/ o Kondari, must follow "something invisible" that produced by Tongkat. What movement stick does? Movement that determine by your imagination. For instance, the 2 points of a stick makes circle vertically.  To maintain this circular movement of a stick, actor behave as a holder, as articulator, being articulated by the stick. This state of being, active & passive and attentively & continuously serving, maintain the continuity of movement of the stick, actor/manipulator must be as flexible as possible. A rigid strait direct stick will tell you to behave flexibly. This is the art of survival, always ready to serve the "will" of the stick, that is circular movement regularly.
Then, start a work, a long ....long journey of smiling exploration, a life time enjoyment. We try the best we can, joyfully, in music / singing within action.

In 2003 I start opening a space of sharing, in Montreuil, after few weeks theatrical workshop I conducted for Actors/actreeses in Paris. Some participants ask me to continue the workshop, Tribuana workshop, so I offer free sharing in little park in Montreuil,  CHAMPA TRIBUANA,

Tongkat is lesson number 8 , among 28 Tribuana lesson, in school Tribuana of life....

Le Tongkat, c'est un exercice (une art, modestement nommé ainsi) pour travail en soi, sur flexibilité, sur supplesse, sur santé, sur bien être car dedans il y a le travail d'échauffement, un peu de "méditation" avec le bâton, immobile, il y a aussi un travail de mouvement enchainé à la base de mouvement court.
La naissance de cette art, c'est au tour de 1987, lorsque je pratiqué souvent seul le bâton, après la séance de tai chi au parc des Buttes-Chaumont à Paris avec Monsieur Toi ... (un maitre chinois).
J'ai donc eu visite et question d'une personne me demandant:"qu'est ce que c'est que vous pratiquer? Comment s'appelle-t-il?" 
j'ai dit:" c'est du bâton, l'art du bâton"
"comment s'appel le maitre? "
j'ai dit:"bâton, c'est lui le maitre, le bâton."
En disant ainsi, j'ai réalisé que je suis le serviteur, qui servir la volonté du bâton.
Donc, pour un/e "Tongkateur/Tongkatrice", la parole guidante c'est: "je suis celui qui suis"
A partir que vous prenez cette phrase sacrée qui guide, vous n'avez qu'à suivre......, le voyage de bonheur se passera naturellement.
Cet repère, quelqu'un qui disponible de suivre, est une bonne voie pour un acteur tribuana de théâtre; celui qui suit "quelque chose" (une histoire, une caractère) ... l'art de  servir, de survie.
Le travail de Tongkat, pour aussi effet de rendre plus souple et résistante le poignée ... effet souple digestion
La longueur du bâton c'est du pied/sol - sourcil /3ème oeil, en bois, diamètre 35 mm.
Et, ce voyage m'a offrir beaucoup de découvert des voies intéressante, .... travail d'étirement, échauffement, méditation début en Tongkat, travail de groupe, travail de rythme, des kata long mouvement, enchainement plusieurs mouvements courts; 

L'art du Tongkat, je ne développe pas dans la voie martial pour combat.  Il y a plusieurs vidéos dans you tube, en cherchant avec mot: Tongkat tribuana. Bonne découverte, ....pour gouter, peut être au RDV dans le parc au beau temps de printemps.... ici, klick Vidéo.

To start the work, the exercise, we honor the master, by doing exercise no 1. I called it:
see moment of 17:10 in the video
pour méditation-interrogation du maitre en bâton voir moment 17:10 du vidéo de 19:52.

In this exercise, the bottom of stick is hold between 2 hands, 
maintain the stick vertical with out help of fingers of both hand,
breath deeply, 
open both hand so the stick will slide down vertically,
catch the right moment that when the stick just almost/before touching the ground,
as close as possible (one millimeter for ex.)
stick should not touch the ground.
notice your comment (exclamation) in mind, when you success or fail
releasing the stick 3 times.
This exercise will calm you down, at least will give you the mirror of your state, how cool you are, or how nervous you are.
The aim of this exercise, Tongkat pondering (meditation) is : not loosing your balance, your calm in any condition of life.

    Chiara: I'll take it in my mind and I'll do right now

    Tapa: so you can examine what and how a master behave with his disciples/students

    It's interesting

    Tapa: wow... it is a pleasure to have a student with such anthusiasm like you Chiara Natalino
    Chiara: Thank you
    It's a pleasure for me

    Tapa;let's have a break until here for now, except if you still have question
    Chiara;I'm really happy for your attention
    Ok for the break

    Tapa;look time to time, the blog of Tribuana Catania, it will be updated with new notes of participants
    Chiara: Ok, l'll look.

    our conversation can be a good interview to share
    you see, a master is awaken by intelligent and anthusiastic student
    and vice versa
    I think the same

    to channel one mind, one activity in one streamm, that is also a linear concentration
    there are also spheric concentration = awareness, path/way to consciousness
    It's a first step for me
