Abstract:

In Asian martial arts, the bo-staff has long been recognized as a potent weapon. In Europe, the staff also has a distinguished history. For centuries starting before the Middle Ages, it was the weapon of choice for farmers, herders, and middle-class travellers. During the Renaissance, the staff was included in the curriculum of Europe's finest fighting masters, including Jacob Sutor, Joachim Meyer, George Silver and Joseph Swetnam. Aside from these great masters, who can forget Robin Hood and his band of merry men, whose use of the staff was to cause such havoc for the Sherriff of Nottingham? With the resurgence of interest in European martial arts, David Lindholm presents a synthesis of techniques preserved in the historical record, a useful guide for both novice and experienced combatant, including translations of the most important texts, analysis, and photographic interpretation of each technique. - Publisher.
