Martial Mechanics

(And the superficial divide between East and West)

 

To the untrained eye the empty hand martial systems of the Orient can seem to be at odds with the historical bladed systems of Europe, but despite the differing aesthetics they may be more similar than we first presume. By focusing on what is common between the systems rather than what is superficially different Dave hopes to demonstrate to you that the finite nature of the human body means we may not have quite as many different approaches to combat across the world as there seem to be.

N.B.: The session will involve some (optional) practical work, so please come dressed in something you can move in.
