    Default Richard Army Maguire Indian Clubs

    I've enjoyed the Indian Clubs very much and there is clearly a paucity of information available online.

    One guy i've seen is Richard Maguire, who has a couple of DVD's out.

    His You Tube clips seem nice, does anyone any opinions on him.

    I've enjoyed Club Swinging Essentials and Dr Thomas' DVD but am thirsty for more information.

    His original DVD doesn't have much technique instruction. As the name implies it's an introduction covering history, types of clubs,brief instruction on the smaller clubs and demos of the heavier clubs and mace. Interesting but considering the cost it's lacking IMO. I haven't seen the new one yet but it looks like he goes deeper into the exercises and routines.

    Think of yourself as a bladed weapon that requires sharpening daily. Remember the finest edge will dull the quickest, so don’t rest on past accomplishments, keep training. As your technique becomes sharper your skills will be more difficult to improve, then you must increase the realism and intensity of your training. To live the martial way one must train their entire lives.

    Thanks Damion, that's sort of what i figured. I was thinking of getting some clubs from Revolution where they throw that DVD for around 15-20 usd, thats not bad to learn some history.

    It seems that Club Swinging Essentials is the best way to start, but its not cheap either, however one can actually get the process going with it.

    I took a look again at Ed Thomas' DVD yesterday and after working with CSE it actually made sense.

    @Shurite: Its not the size of the club, but how you swing it!

    seriously, this is such an underused resource
    go there, type in physical culture in the search field, or indian clubs, and get a wealth of info for free
    since you have CSE you will easily be able to extrapolate the info from the texts
    from conversations with Dr Thomas, much of the information you can find there is what he recommended to me as learning resources

    more than anything, he stressed that you practice, it is a skill that will develop over time and the benefits will be reaped with the acquisition of mastery

    Thanks so much for that.

    Yes i've been practicing pretty much everyday a little bit since i got them. I also got CSE the day it came out. Really love it, it makes so much sense, I feel Dr Thomas has done us a great service.

    Did you meet him at the CSE seminar or elsewhere? I love to hear more, if you care to share.

    I have had the luck and honor of being involved in a youth athletics program he put on for the PALS program (police athletic league) here in N Mpls as well as being an attendee of the CICS clinic
    the underlying principles are what kind of lit the fire for me, if you get on his site and read through his news letters you will see why, think it is ihpra.org
    amazing amount of knowledge in regards to physical culture and the history of the subject matter
    besides being a genuinely nice and humble man
    if you get the chance, take advantage of any opportunity to learn from him you can

    Another great reference thanks p@b, what a gold mine, just what i was looking for.

    Dr Thomas comes off on his video exactly as you describe, it would be an honor to study with him if the opportunity arrises.
