Now that you’re fully aware of the zones and angles of your body for personal defense, you’re going to apply these to medium range stick defense. A medium range stick is perfect for the in-between areas of close-quarters fighting. Michael Janich demonstrates the proper technique for striking and blocking vertically, at an angle or thrusting in each of the four quadrants. You can use a medium length stick single or double-handed for more control and power. The mechanics are slightly different when dealing with a longer tool, so pay close attention to how you strike so you can be more effective in your defense and attacking abilities.
