In this technique-and-information packed course you will be shown how to make quick work of any dangerous criminal assailant using nothing more than a stick.
This is not the kind of fancy stick-twirling and sparring with sticks that is so often passed off as “stick combatives” today. This is commando and special forces type doctrine — speedily training you to knock out, maim, or otherwise neutralize an attacker when all that you have at hand is a stick.
All skills drawn from the extensive American Combato curriculum — utterly reliable, war-proven, easily retained, and practical in the extreme.
