The British Quarterstaff Association teaches men the art and technique
of the quarterstaff, a weapon whose use predates written history.
Today, the British Quarterstaff Association provides men with a form
of training that is rooted in British traditions, through regular
classes and events.
As a combat form, the use of the quarterstaff requires learning
sets of attacks and defences, coordination of eye, hand and body
and how to focus intention.
More fundamental than these is learning how to use posture and
weight shifting to direct energy economically. Still more fundamental
is adopting the approach of the warrior.
Working regularly with the staff develops strength. Confronting
fear develops courage. Observing the effective use of techniques
develops skill. The aim of the warrior is to use strength, courage
and skill in all circumstances, not just when he holds a staff.
