Shillelagh Irish Stick Fighting Seminar
April 22 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm$65.00
Join us for our next Shillelagh Irish Stick Fighting Seminar on Saturday April 22nd, 2023. This event is open to all – current students and non-practitioners alike.
We will spend the day going through all three levels of the Combat Shillelagh system including up to (and beyond) black belt level. We will also take a look at applications and uses of both longer range versions of the shillelagh (known as a wattle) as well as standard length shillelagh.
This is a rare chance to experience shillelagh Irish stick fighting as taught in our system in a fun and relaxed environment. Several senior instructors will be on hand to help train and coach you throughout the day. And of course, our Founder and Lead Instructor Brent Earlewine will be teaching the seminar.
You will learn single hand and double handed strikes, blocks, footwork, rolls, defenses against grabs, joint locks, weapon disarms, takedowns and so much more. It will be a jam packed day and promises to be a rock and roll event! We will spend extra time focusing on double handed strikes and applications during the day.
No prior martial arts experience required or needed, all are welcome!
We will start at 10am sharp and run until 5pm to maximize our time together. If you own a shillelagh that you wish to train with you are welcome to bring it with you. Otherwise, we have sufficient quantities on hand in our training hall to accommodate a large class size. Items will be available for sale during the event as well.
