Want to learn how to use a staff?
We are pleased to announce the first of our martial arts for beginners seminars. The class will be a fun and relaxed introduction to the basics of stick work for the martial arts student, the actor or the casually interested. No experience or special physical ability is required.
The following concepts will be covered:
- Basic grip techniques.
- Basic footwork needed to maintain control of the staff and balance.
- The relationship between speed, power and accuracy. When each is appropriate, and how to create them.
- Spinning the staff for combat effectiveness (and because it is cool…)
- Practice combat forms (kata). The student will learn several movement sequences that can be practiced later to reinforce the material learned in the class.
Some equipment may be available to borrow, as well as some to purchase. It would be preferable to purchase your own rattan or hardwood staff prior to the class. They can commonly be found for sale on the internet. Your staff should be roughly the same height as you, slightly taller would be preferable.
