Please join us on Saturday April 16th, 2022 from 10:00am – 5:00pm where we will explore the foundational aspects of Level I, Level II and Level III of the Combat Shillelagh system.
The Shillelagh is a devastatingly effective weapon from ancient times and it is still an extremely practical and effective weapon today. We have spent decades in the martial arts studying staff weapons of all sizes and shapes. We have brought this deep domain expertise to a modern day interpretation of the Shillelagh.
The seminar will allow us to explore not only modern day applications of the Shillelagh with strikes and blocks against armed and unarmed opponents utilizing our “9 Gates” movement, striking and footwork concepts, but we will also incorporate grappling, weapon disarms, defense against grabs, ground skills and much much more. Part of the day will focus on the Black Belt level curriculum and the core Stanzas material, as well as an introduction to the “Troid Do Bata” Two Stick part of our system.
It will be a very full day packed with information on all aspects of the Shillelagh and the Combat Shillelagh system. For those who wish to rank in our system, this is a rare chance to get a full day on personal one-on-one instruction as required for rank advancement. All individuals testing for rank must have an active membership in the Student Federation at the time of the test AND have made prior arrangements with Senior Instructors or the Founder that they wish to test for rank.
The seminar will be held at the Pittsburgh Bujinkan Dojo where we will have access to a great training space and training weapons for our event.
Open to all, no prior martial arts experience necessary.
