Jane Fonda Meets Kill Bill Sword Workout
A point I was getting to in my last post was that I not only see the big stick as a means of combat, but as a means of physical conditioning. With the short stick you can get by with the wrist and arm, but the big stick relies on the waist, hips, and legs to a greater extent. I also think that if you’re doing the big stick correctly, you’ll be using both hands rather than just one.
The other day at the book store I stumbled across this book, available from Amazon. The author outlines a workout with the wooden sword. I note that the lowest ratings come from martial artists, especially those who study sword styles.
I’m wondering how this applies to the big stick, particularly a workout that can be done in the living room, maybe with a heavy (weighted) stick.
