NINE LEVELS, EASY TO EXPERT

The Art and Science of Staff Fighting video offers complete step by step instruction for the staff, with an emphasis on the dynamics of combat. The author draws on thirty years of martial experience, presenting the best of both Eastern and Western traditions.

Joe Varady lays out a comprehensive course of study in nine levels, from beginner to expert, guiding you through such fundamentals as stances, striking, blocking, and footwork. In advanced lessons, viewers learn disarming techniques, groundwork, and facing multiple opponents.

This video is not just for staff enthusiasts. Even those unfamiliar with martial arts can adapt these techniques, increasing their skill and confidence in defending themselves.

"Our environment is usually full of improvised weapons,” says Varady. “Staff fighting techniques can be effectively applied in a self-defense situation using a walking stick, coatrack, curtain rod, floor lamp, hockey stick, fallen tree branch, broom, mop, shovel, or rake.

This video features:

  1. Nine levels, progressing from easy to expert

  2. Detailed step by step instructions, drills, fundamentals, and advanced techniques

  3. A “nondenominational” approach to staff, utilizing the best of Eastern and Western arts

  4. A comprehensive, methodical approach to building staff skills

If you are already a student of the staff, these lessons will augment your techniques, broaden your options, and offer foundational insights to other polearms such as the spear and halberd.

Whether you are an experienced staff fighter or a layman seeking practical techniques for self-defense, The Art and Science of Staff Fighting will help you develop the skills you need.
