    We have a system on record here in the UK but the manual detailing the how to with a Quater staff is very basic, the manuals (is say manual, its more sketches) do not date as far back as 800 though,

    The thing is these days if you simply practice with the weapon for 5 of 6 weeks, thats more practice than 95 percent of folks have had,

    Not my weapon of choice, being a tall, broad Rugby guy i prefer more linear weapons and heavy weapons.

    My head is my first choice in a brawl, perhaps I should start a course on that hehe

    Is there any teachings of this in Australia?
