A Year in the Wilderness: Bearing Witness in the Boundary Waters

A Year in the Wilderness: Bearing Witness in the Boundary Waters Lowest new price: $22.00
Lowest used price: $15.93
List price: $35.00
Author: Amy Freeman

Since its establishment as a federally protected wilderness in 1964, the Boundary Waters has become one of our nation’s most valuable―and most frequently visited―natural treasures. When Amy and Dave Freeman learned of toxic mining proposed within the area’s watershed, they decided to take action―by spending a year in the wilderness, and sharing their experience through video, photos, and blogs with an audience of hundreds of thousands of concerned citizens. This book tells the deeper story of their adventure in northern Minnesota: of loons whistling under a moonrise, of ice booming as it forms and cracks, of a moose and her calf swimming across a misty lake.



With the magic―and urgent―message that has rallied an international audience to the campaign to save the Boundary Waters, A Year in the Wilderness is a rousing cry of witness activism, and a stunning tribute to this singularly beautiful region.

The Art and Science of Staff Fighting: A Complete Instructional Guide

The Art and Science of Staff Fighting: A Complete Instructional Guide Lowest new price: $9.35
Lowest used price: $14.23
List price: $22.95
Author: Joe Varady
Brand: YMAA Publication Center

Finalist - SPORTS 2016 INDIES Book Award

Finalist - 2016 USA Best Book Awards

NINE LEVELS, EASY TO EXPERT

This book stands apart from other staff training manuals. While most titles focus on forms and twirling, The Art and Science of Staff Fighting emphasizes the dynamics of combat. The author draws on thirty years of martial experience, presenting the best of both Eastern and Western traditions.

Joe Varady lays out a comprehensive course of study in nine levels, from beginner to expert. He guides readers through such fundamentals as stances, striking, blocking, and footwork. In advanced lessons, readers learn disarming techniques, groundwork, and facing multiple opponents.
But this book is not just for staff enthusiasts. Even those unfamiliar with martial arts can adapt these techniques, increasing their skill and confidence in defending themselves.

"Our environment is usually full of improvised weapons,” Varady writes. “Staff fighting techniques can be effectively applied in a self-defense situation using a walking stick, coatrack, curtain rod, floor lamp, hockey stick, fallen tree branch, broom, mop, shovel, or rake.”
Equipped with this knowledge, readers will begin to realize that, in one way or another, they are nearly always armed―and capable of defending themselves.

This book features

  • Nine levels of instruction, progressing from easy to expert
  • Over 600 photos with motion arrows
  • A “nondenominational” approach to staff, utilizing the best of Eastern and Western arts
  • A comprehensive, methodical approach to building staff skills


If you are already a student of the staff, these lessons will not conflict with your katas or current style. Instead, they will augment your techniques, broadening your options.

Whether you are an experienced staff fighter or a layman seeking practical techniques for self-defense, The Art and Science of Staff Fighting will help you develop the skills you need.
