John. " Tria. I'll be using the crowbar in place of my sword, A couple of my father's friends use the quarterstaff and they showed me some of the basics. After this, if you decide to stick with the staff, I would find someone with more experience.
First off, I'll show you how to counter an overhead attack, You can use a block holding the staff with both hands or you can push the attack to one side.
Then there's attacking from the side. You knock the weapon aside and hit with the bottom of the staff. We'll go through the motions first in slow motion and then speed up until we have a good workout.
