Darrin Cook con Big Stick Combat: Baseball Bat, Cane, & Long Stick for Fitness and Self-Defense (English Edition)
The long stick, whether a stick, a cane, or a baseball bat, is a readily-available, inexpensive, and almost always legal weapon. The long stick is also effective--if you know how to fight with it.
Big Stick Combat is a radically new method for the long stick, cane, and baseball bat. It is unlike Irish stick fighting, Japanese hanbo methods, WWII bayonet and combatives techniques, or any Filipino stick fighting style. Darrin Cook is the only man in the world to have studied personally with 3 great grandmasters of the Filipino martial arts: GM Ramiro Estalilla of Kabaroan, a long-stick style, GM Mike Vasquez of Modified Tapado, a short staff method, and GM Drigo Maranga of Combat Eskrima Maranga, a short-stick, close-range style. Big Stick Combat is a unique fusion of these styles.
Time and again those who have seen the Big Stick Combat style have responded, saying in effect, “I thought I had seen it all, but Big Stick Combat was totally unexpected.” So be prepared to learn a new, simple method of stick fighting and practical, realistic self-defense.
