Description

Axe Handle Fighting! A Crash Course  
by W. Hock Hochheim  

"Several years ago I picked up a 28 inch axe handle. It had no axe head on the end, just the handle. It felt amazing in my hand. What ergonomics! The perfect curved handle, the diameter shaped like a fat sword, even has an edge to it. The flattened end where the head fits is great for strikes. The axe handle is a tool specially built through the ages for striking, hardened for pressure to withstand great duress. My round Filipino training stick, in my hand routinely since 1986, was also about 28 inches, but, I asked myself “why must I use this?” Why am I not using this more perfect axe handle instead of the defined "martial arts" stick. Was it politics? Or mindlessness? Social pressure? Tradition? Why?  As a result, I began to convert the stick basics from the ages of martial stick doctrine over to the axe handle. Keeping some of it. Dropping much of it. Here they are." - Hock

"I also want to add that I use this film as the main film for tecahing the all the single hand grip and double hand grip basic moves and ideas. It is a foundational video for ALL stick work, martial arts or otherwise." - Hock

. Single-hand grip strikes
. Double-hand grip strikes
