THE FIGHTING TOMAHAWK A uniquely American weapon, the tomahawk has been used in warfare from 18th century colonial skirmishes to the modern battlefields of Iraq & Afghanistan. In this groundbreaking video, veteran Dwight McLemore has taken the painstaking research that made his book The Fighting Tomahawk such a best-seller & adapted it to video, showing not only how the tomahawk was used during the Colonial era, but also how it can be used as an almost unbeatable self-defense tool today.In addition to the hard-&-fast tactics of tomahawk fighting, McLemore takes you through the history of the weapon & its evolution from the ball-headed war club that made the American Indians such feared hand-to-hand fighters to the razor-sharp field axe & beyond. The fighting techniques taught include learning basic grips & angles, mastering footwork that will always put you at the most advantageous position to attack, striking at close range, combining cutting & chopping, surprising your opponent with low-line kicks, & much more. He also includes dangerous live-blade work, sparring, & throwing of the weapon to give you the combat skills any frontiersman would have.The pioneers didn't bother with martial arts dogma, & neither should you let this video teach you how to fight like a true American warrior.
