Impact Weapon Combatives is a groundbreaking, incredibly detailed and inclusive go-to book on Impact Weapons. This is the training course about you holding a stick in your hand and blocking, striking and grappling against empty hand attacks, against other impact weapons, against edged weapons and against some gun threats. Hock's involvement with the stick/baton spans five decades dating back to the early 1970s when he first entered the U.S. Army Military Police Academy. His book covers history, theories and science about the impact weapon, stress quick draws, using the closed expandable baton as a weapon, all single-hand and double-handed strikes, all single and double-handed blocks, both old-school and new military and police baton defensive tactics, skill drills, stick ground-fighting.
This is the new, improved 2022, 2nd edition of this book with new things I have learned in the last 11 years. If you have the ebook, it has already been upgraded and you have it automatically when you open the file. If you have the first edition paperback or hardcover, and would like the 2nd edition just bring the old one to a seminar and get the updated one for free.
This book also includes a very special section on impact weapon retention covering everything from the carry site to use. Plus, it has over 40 stick takedowns starting from the head on down to the ankle. This is the complete guide to the use of the "stick" as a tactical tool. It does not detail stick-versus-stick as a Filipino martial arts weapons or course of study. This is a completely practical, tactical training and reference manual. The material focuses on tactics not on the martial artsy segment of this material. If you are interested in the art only, this is not the book for you. But if you are interested in tactics, strategies, history and application of impact weapons, this book was written for you. 222 pages. Nearly 1,000 b/w how-to photos. "There has never been a stick book like this before." - Hock
"This is the best stick book I've ever seen." - Christof Froelich, Germany
"I bought this excellent book. Thanks for writing it! - Ray Purdy, Paris, France
"I would like to share my book review about the IMPACT WEAPON COMBATIVES with you - I studied your book in depth and I have to say, I like it very much, because it focuses not in stickfighting (stick versus stick) tournaments, but in real world application. I've trained for a long time in Filipino stickfighting, but your system suits my needs perfectly! I work and train very close with your book, and I see that it changed my whole view about impact weapons. Again, you left no stone unturned and it`s the MOST COMPLETE book I've ever seen on the market about impact weapons! You did a superb job; keep up the great work! I would recommend your impact weapon book to ANYONE, who is interested in REAL WORLD application! I look forward to training with you; thanks for everything." - Juan Obrecht, Vunak PFS and Dog Brothers Instructor: Zurich, Switzerland
"I have recently bought your footwork book, knife combative book and impact weapons book; all. may I add, are superb." - Ferah Zulfiqar
"If Hock Hochheim wrote it...you want to read it." - Shawn Zirger, Canada
Encyclopedia to Bone & Skull Crushing. Like all of Hock's books this one is just as good and covers the complete spectrum of stick combat against unarmed individuals, and armed (stick, knife, gun) combatants. As well, as the title implies Hock discusses the history, research, experimentation and evolution of stick combatives. This is accomplished in the same manner and format as Hock's updated benchmark release on bladecraft titled " Knife Counter/Knife Combatives " and ultimately this continues to hold true with this title providing an easy to understand how-to manual. This book covers a tomb of information in just over two-hundred pages set into a large 8.5"x11.5" hard cover format, which is profusely illustrated with line drawing, B&W and color photography. This by far one of the best impact weapons books on the market today and I highly recommend it to the novice and advanced stick fighter, combatives practitioner and martial arts enthusiast." - T.A.L. Dozer, Amazon review.
What's the "author's cut?" We've heard the term "director's cut" in movies. But here, should you want an autographed, collectable, hardcover textbook for your collection or as a gift it's the author's cut. It costs a little more because the publisher sends the book to Hock and he signs it and then sends it out, doubling the postage.
