Stav training is more concerned with developing an awareness of fundamental principles than the use of particular technologies or specific techniques. In Stav we generally work with weapons of five lengths, Spear, Staff, Axe, cudgel and Tein. A tein is about the length of your forearm and may be made of wood, metal (which is basically a dagger) or even antler.

This workshop will cover the use of the tein to defend against a dagger. We will also look at how the same principles and body mechanics work fine without a weapon at all. This means that dagger/tein training is also the basis for unarmed close quarter combat training. So, during this workshop we will explore:

  • Carrying and handling a short weapon
  • Preventing an opponent from even deploying their weapon
  • Dealing with a double bind
  • The six attacks from the lines of the Hagl
  • Defences against each line of attack using the tein
  • Unarmed defences against the same attacks
