Silat Suffian Bela Diri - Axe Fighting (Hachet / Tomahawk)




 


 

And it wouldn't be complete without Lynn T and his bicycle shorts
North CarolinaBe without fear in the face of thine enemies.
Be brave and upright that God may love thee.
Speak the truth always even if it leads to thy death.
Safeguard the helpless and do no wrong.
That is thine oath.

Nice. Great vids. The Comtech tomahawk vids are really good, too. I always love Jim Keating's stuff.

 :thumbup1   I'd seen some good stuff with tomahawks but that's the first modern work I've seen with an axe.

George "Mercop" Matheis has some good tomahawk stuff. We covered a little of it the last time I trained with him. The cool thing is that all of it is easily transferable to use with a metal drugstore cane. Great weapon for NPEs.

Try as I do, I have a hard time taking Lynn Thompson seriously.

Especially in the bicycle shorts...

Dude needs to invest in a black hoodie and some sweat pants...  not Lulu Lemon...

Even if my chief of police, heck any guy and 3/4 of women, showed up dressed like that, I'd have to say something. Is he surrounded by yes men?

I think the video is rather old ... though it's not clear when that was ever in style.

Without trying to link to another forum for this information, I compiled a TON of information on tomahawk training over on bladeforums in the Axe, Tomahawk, & Hatchet Forum, complete with a few links to reviews I did on some of the various offerings (I really recommend reading my reviews if you wanna "try before you buy").  Several other members have included their own findings and other links to more available info.  With a mods permission, I'll post the link.  The entire thread is strictly dedicated to training materials for the tomahawk.

I'm not the designated forum mod, but I say "link away".

http://www.bladeforums.com/forums/showthread.php/420228-Tomahawk-Training-Books-Equipment-Hands-On-amp-VHS-DVDs

Something to note about the reviews that are linked to in my thread on bladeforums: I organized a pass-around of my personal tomahawk DVDs with the requirement that a review of the DVD be posted, even if it was just some thoughts about what was good and what wasn't (in your opinion).  This seemed to work really well.  Knowing what kind of group we are here on WTA, I'd be willing to entertain doing something similar here...   :hmm

Let me locate all my training DVDs (the wife and I just moved into our house in October, but we still haven't unpacked everything yet), and I'll post them up and let you all decide which one we pass around first.
