The Short Stick
Some basic things to consider when working with any weapon…
1. If defending, remember it is not the weapon that works against you but the person. All by itself, the weapon will just lay there. Work with the person.
2. Do not be preoccupied with the method of attack or weapon. The body’s survival skills kick in and clear the direction or line of attack spontaneously. Staying relaxed will help a lot in this endeavour.
