The martial arts weapons of Okinawa and Japan were forged in the heat of ancient battles. In this book, Sid Campbell bridges the gap between the original bloody role of these weapons and their contemporary use in sparring matches. He reveals how to harness the rhythm of a combative engagement, perform the three initial attacks, "move in the shadows" during a match, employ a number of clever deception tactics and much more. You will then learn the original tactical thinking that went into each weapon's development and how these strategies can be applied to the sporting arena today.
