Gene Lebell grappling club/baton
I was at a stickfighting event in the back of a martial arts supply store in NoHo, and noticed they had a huge selection of weapons. One of them that brought up some nostalgia was seeing a Gene Lebell grappling club. It looks like this:
So its like a big hardwood Q tip. The idea is that the larger ends make it easier to grip and less likely to slide. Its supposed to be designed more for grappling applications than striking someone. Has anyone here done any training with this weapon? Or read the book? I'm interested in learning more, since my training in eskrido and DBMA stickgrappling have shown me the possibilities of using a stick for grappling. Plus, Gene Lebell!
