Tomahawk Fighting

The Tomahawk has been widely known as the weapon of choice for the Vikings, Native Americans, and a host of other warrior civilizations throughout history, but the low-tech, high-impact tomahawk has also been carried in every American war, including Vietnam, Afghanistan and Iraq. The modern-day tactical tomahawk can be utilized singly or with a knife in both offensive and defensive encounters.

 

This seminar will touch on a number of tomahawk fighting concepts, including:

  • Various grips (short, long, reverse)

  • Stance

  • Footwork

  • Angles of Attack (cutting and slashing)

  • Targets (arms, legs, head)

  • Combinations

  • Checking Hand – training the left hand

  • Trapping

  • Body manipulation

  • Flow/energy drills

  • Combat drills

  • Disarming techniques against knife, stick or axe

  • and MORE

 

Though swords, spears, and battleaxes have generally disappeared, tomahawks remain useful and thrive in combat, self-defense, and survival situations. While most people may not choose or be able to carry a tomahawk or axe in their everyday lives, the principles taught in this class are transferable to empty hand, knife, stick, improvised weapons, and even a hammer (the most available and utilized tool in most households). 

 

So, if you are looking for a new and different self-defense option, a useful tool to chop some firewood, dig out a foxhole, open those pesky security doors, help you remove IEDs, kill a zombie horde, fend off Viking invaders, OR if you just want to try something really cool and lots of fun, then you need to attend this tactical tomahawk fighting class.
