Stav Training in Beverley

Staff Training

Saturday 3rd March 2018 – Introduction to Training with the Staff

The simplest weapon is the staff. Add a pointed head of some kind and you have a spear. Stav means stave or staff. This means rune staves but also means the walking staff, ski pole or fighting spear or pike.

If you can handle a staff you can use any two handed weapon including the axe, longsword, pole axe, spear or halberd. In this seminar you will cover:

  • Carrying and deploying the staff
  • The three hands and three fingers grip
  • The staff exercises drawn from the runic stances
  • Two person training for accuracy, distance and control
  • Five principles drills for learning how to train safely with a partner
