Stav Martial Arts Training Seminars in Salisbury
Our next Salisbury Course will be held on Saturday 14th of November between 10am and 1pm
The purpose of Stav training is to find our centre within our own web of awareness. This is a process of raising consciousness in body, mind and spirit. Stav martial arts training provides a context for developing this awareness. There are imediate and practical benefits in terms of fitness and well–being. The unarmed training does provide genuine self–defence skills. However, these are side benefits in addition to the development of your human potential. So, how can you develop your potential through Stav? Simple really, turn up, train.
Each three hour Stav training seminar will focus on a different weapon or unarmed training on each occasion. The course on the 14th of November will focus on training with the Axe.
Pre–book on this course and I will send you a complimentary copy of the Stav Fighting Axe DVD.
Watching the DVD will give you the opportunity to familarise yourself with the training you will be doing on the 14th. If you don't like what you see then please just let me know and I will immediately refund your booking fee, you don't even need to bother to send the DVD back. Of course if you cannot make either this course or the one in Crewkerne on the 31st of October then you can just order the DVD from here.
The Axe is the second most important weapon in Stav training (after the staff). Click on the image above to see examples of training with the axe.
