Big Stick Combat

The Complete Guide To Weapon Use And Self-Defense - Learn How To Use Cane, Long Stick And Baseball Bat

Stick fighting has been around for at least 3000 years and probably longer. Its origins are buried deep in the past and myths in south-east Asia suggest that it was delivered directly from the gods. This book traces those forms of stick fighting in Europe, in Japan, in India, Malaysia, China, and Indonesia that have been developed as sports rather than as ways of inflicting pain. Anyone with an interest in how stick fighting developed to be what it is today will find something of value in this.

Here is a preview of what you'll learn:

  • The history of stick fighting and its origins in human conflict
  • Stick fighting as training
  • Stick fighting for social purposes (including courtship)
  • Quarterstaff fighting
  • Kendo
  • Arnis in the Philippines
  • Silat
  • Indian martial arts including Silambang and Gatka
