Club Techniques


Club techniques were taught in a traditional manner in Shaolin Kempo. Many schools, including the one at which I teach have moved to a more conceptual based club defense incorporating FMA concepts often through cross-training. The typical training consisted of overhead club attacks, side club attacks, and some ‘variations’ such as backhand or thrusting one or two handed club techniques. The club techniques presented here are more reflective of the ‘typical’ club training at SKK schools.
