Was Tiger Woods Attacked with His Own Club?
Excuse me for delving into tabloid sensationalism, but it is reasonable to doubt the story that Tiger’s wife used a golf club to break the window of his SUV in order to save him heroically. It is more likely that she heard the rumors of his affair and attacked him with a golf club.
What does this have to do with the martial arts?
Tiger might be in better shape today if he did eskrima or kali instead of golf. You see, if he were a 33 year old Supreme Grandmaster of Halo-halo Eskrima Kalibanga, his wife would have picked up one of his rattan sticks and attacked him. He’d be lucky.
Think about it –how many arnis sticks can break the window of an SUV?
A golf club is a better weapon because clubs in general are better weapons than sticks. A golf club, like all clubs, has weight at one end, and a handle at the other. A club is what I call a “weight forward” weapon: like a hammer, weight is shifted forward to one end.
In this incident, college students fended off would-be robbers, picking up a golf club to defend themselves.
Look at this video, “How to Disarm an Irate Golfer.” Don’t laugh. You’re looking at a potential Supreme Grandmaster of Halo-halo Eskrima Kalibanga.
