THE FORGOTTEN ART OF FIGHTING AGAINST MULTIPLE OPPONENTS

Now available at our Preto Martial arts Shop, second (and improved) edition of the outnumbered combat book:


THE FORGOTTEN ART OF FIGHTING AGAINST MULTIPLE OPPONENTS:

A practical guide for staff & baton martial artists


With serious, yet time constrained, martial trainees in mind, this book looks to be useful and straight to the point.

As such, it covers strategies for engaging multiple opponents, strategies for handling groups of up to four opponents and, last but not least, it does so while looking of the specificities of fighting with both a staff and a baton.  








Additionally, with Jogo do Pau (the only central European fencing art with an unbroken lineage) having originated from outnumbered combat and later evolved by developing a complementary approach to duelling, trainees and instructors of Historical European Fencing Systems might be interested to learn about this evolution through our DVD on the issue.

(NEW DVD) - FROM BATTLEFIELDS TO DUELLING: The evolution of JdP

From battlefields to duelling: The evolution of Jogo do Pau
BUY NOW
My first ever DVD on Jogo do Pau is now available

Without much surprise, I decided to start by the very beginning. This meant sharing my view on how the art evolved, more specifically how varying combat circumstances (contexts) forced the development of different sets of techniques and tactics.

Our hope is that this DVD on the only surviving HEMA tradition with an unbroken lineage will bring about a new and helpful perspective in interpreting other (and lost) HEMA schools of thought, while helping you improve your combat skills by supplying you with a blueprint for understanding combat tactics.

Check out our first trailer!

From outnumbered combat to duelling combat tactics, while  also analysing relevant similarities between swords and staves, we are confident this DVD will be innovative and helpful to all dedicated HEMA practitioners, from beginners to advanced ones.
