Paladin Press - Dwight C. McLemore's Advanced Bowie Techniques

Advanced Bowie Techniques

The Finer Points of Fighting with a Large Knife

by Dwight C. McLemore

248 pages, 11" x 8.5"


In Bowie and Big-Knife Fighting System author Dwight McLemore explored the history of James Bowie and the Bowie knife and laid out a basic fighting system for large blades. In Advanced Bowie Techniques, McLemore builds on this foundation, ratcheting up the instruction to teach you more complex fighting techniques with the Bowie knife. Using the same highly effective workbook format, McLemore pairs step-by-step instructions with realistic illustrations to make the fighting sequences come alive. His uncanny ability to convey subtle motion and movement in his drawings allows readers to fully understand and learn the dynamic art of knife fighting. Progressive drills combine techniques into sequences designed to show you how to maximize time, distance and movement to create openings for attacking or defending yourself against one or more opponents.

Advanced Bowie Techniques is for anyone who wants to learn how to fight with a big blade or improve the skills he already has.

He is renowned for his vast knowledge of Bowie and big-knife fighting and has more than 18 years of experience in self-defense and martial arts.

Stickgrappler's Note: I am guessing the Paladin site will be shut down at the end of the year and I'm archiving select Paladin Press pages to my blog to preserve an essential part of martial arts from 1970-2017. Archiving some of my favorite Paladin titles.
