club3Since we have added club and mace training to our programming, I wanted to add a bit of history on their use over the centuries.

Many people are familiar with the club and mace training done in  countries like India, but probably not too many on their use here in America (granted America is a very young nation compared to the others).club2

The photos shown here are war clubs, but clubs were also used in some forms of hunting

as shown in the  photo of Indians during an  alligator  hunt.

Clubs, like swords, in other cultures were close-range weapons. A warrior had to have great strength and endurance to use them in battle.

Today, with the new versions of clubs and maces, like the ones from Adex; you might not be hunting alligators with them, but they are still very relevant for the times we live in.

On any given day, you might have to fight to protect yourself or your family with whatever you can get your hands on.

Our Warrior  strength-cardio class (club/mace/bodyweight)can help you be better prepared.

Your hands are vital to your everyday life and to your strength training.

Never neglect grip training!
