Just to let you know about a seminar I attended a couple of weeks ago that was ran by stump. We had fairly good attendance and had age ranges of about 8 years old upwards. The seminar was based on single stick and a thorough introduction and warm up was put accross at the beginning. We then went on to striking and blocking in pairs. I naturally get the only left handed person at the seminar...made things interesting... We then did disarms, firstly stick vs stick then on to unarmed vs stick. I have to say I found the unarmed vs stick a lot more taxing expecially as we later went onto falls as well. The positioning of the hands was critical in order to get a good and safe throw. Time flew by in this 2 hour seminar and we were encouraged to swap partners regularly to ensure all levels of experience were given the opportunity to practice. I'm not sure how often Colin (stump) is planning to hold seminars but I would recommend you come along the next time if you have even a remote interest in 'sticks'. I found him to be generous with the information offered and patient!! Nice one stump!
