The Shillelagh has become synonymous with stereotypes about the "Fighting Irish." The truth is that shillelagh fighting was originally a form of fencing which required training, discipline and skill. Often combining stick-fencing with boxing and wrestling, shillelagh fighting was a once a complex mixed martial art. Now for the first time "Fighting Irish: The Art Of Irish Stick-Fighting" describes and analyzes this fascinating sport, its essential nature and techniques. This authoritative classic contains clear cut descriptions of the most important offensive and defensive stick-fighting positions and methods. For the first time in history the basic concepts of Irish shillelagh fighting are laid out and explained for both the martial artist and the the interested reader.

3 of 5 Linguistics or Stick fighting October 18, 2022
Reviewer: David D. from California, MD United States  
The book would benefit by the addition of pictures. The graphics are wonderful if your into old time pictures but don't have the clarity and don't provide much value. If I didn't have a background in fencing and escrima I would be lost.

5 of 5 Two walking stick or cane riddles. May 30, 2022
Reviewer: J. C. Key from Dallas, TX United States  
I habitually walk with a cane due to achy joints caused by excessive wear-and-tear in my younger days.  The cane primarily is a mobility aid.  "The Art Of Irish Stick-Fighting" also allows me to have the knowledge of a few self-defense techniques if ever warranted.  
I hate being thought of as a gimpy old man.
