Stick Fighting

Step-by-step instructions and over 300 photographs allow the trainee to follow and learn the techniques with ease.

The ideal weapon for self-defense is a stick. To find a comprehensive system of techniques using the stick, we must turn to the East, for systems known to the West have fallen into disuse.

A thorough grounding in the fundamentals dealt with here will enable you to disarm and control any assailant.
