DVD - Self Defense with the Sjambok
- by Cold Steel
In addition to its use as a cattle prod, whip, and a means of self protection, the African Sjambok is also known as a formidable snake killer. Its considerable reach, lightning speed and devastating impact make child's play of dispatching some of the biggest snakes. And you can imagine how devastatingly effective it is on two-legged predators as well. A light blow can raise a serious welt while a heavy stroke can cut through thick clothing as efficiently as a razor, leaving a fearsome yet non-lethal wound.
In this DVD, Lynn Thompson, President of Cold Steel and Chief Instructor of the training division, will teach you how to use the sjambok to defend yourself and your loved ones.
