The low-tech, high-impact tomahawk has been carried by American soldiers in every conflict since the Revolutionary War. The same versatility and effectiveness that endeared the multipurpose tomahawk to frontiersmen and Native Americans also make it a valuable addition to the arsenal of modern combatants. It saw service in Vietnam, and it is currently being used by Special Forces members in Afghanistan and Iraq, including U.S. Navy SEALs and Army Rangers, for everything from engaging enemies to digging foxholes to opening ammo containers. In The Fighting Tomahawk, Dwight McLemore traces the origins of the tomahawk and the fighting techniques that make it so brutally effective. Then, just as he did for the Bowie knife in The Bowie and Big-Knife Fighting System, McLemore utilises his dynamic drawings to show how the tomahawk can be used singly or in combination with the long knife to win in both single- and multiple-opponent engagements. The illustrations depict offensive and defensive uses of the tomahawk and long knife, including the chop, cut, rake, deflection, intercepting punch, circular catch and pull, stab and more. McLemore's home-study package for the tomahawk also includes step-by-step fighting scenarios, solo and two-person training schedules, instruction in throwing the tomahawk and applications of the war club. About the Author Dwight C. McLemore is a retired combat arms officer with the U.S. Army and is an accomplished bladesman and instructor. He is renowned for his vast knowledge of Bowie and big-knife fighting and has more than 18 years of experience in self-defence and martial arts.
