  • Learn important guidelines for sparring, from light contact up to full-contact training.
  • Learn how to construct your own padded weapons.
  • Learn effective fighting tips that will rev up your game.

Also included are chapters on advanced techniques; combating short ranged weapons such as a knife to long range weapons like the staff. Even detailed techniques to use when your opponent is armed but you are not!
