Hi, my name is Dan Clay and I'm the education director at the Dangerously Fit Academy.
If you’re just getting started with steel mace training, here’s a quick overview of its beginnings.
Maces have been used as a fighting tool for thousands of years.
Primitive maces made from flint and stick have been found from our ancestors dating back to the stone age 10,000 years ago.
Maces were also the weapon of choice for the Hindu Warriors of the Puranic age of 2,000 years ago, Persian Warriors 1000 years ago, and Europeans in the 12thCentury.
In India, the Pehlwani wrestlers have been training with the Gada for centuries. The Gada is a type of mace made from bamboo and concrete.
