Der Autor verfügt nicht nur um umfassendes Wissen, sondern ist auch ein begnadeter Illustrator. Ich trainiere jetzt schon reichliche 6 Jahre Escrima und konnte aufgrund der hervorragenden Zeichnungen und detailierten Beschreibungen die Techniken in kürzester Zeit nachvollziehen. Allein 10 Seiten behandeln verschiedenen Tragweisen und Ziehtechniken von Tomahawk und Messer was einen Eindruck der Detailverliebtheit des Autors vermittelt. Englischkenntnisse vorausgesetzt, kann man dieses Buch nur wärmstens empfehlen.

Ich will diesen Buch 5 Sterne geben, weil das Buch sehr viele Techniken zum Umgang mit Tomahawk und Messer bietet !!! Auch für Leute die nicht so über Englischkenntnisse verfügen ist dieses Buch mit den zahlreichen Bildern und Darstellungen mehr als ausreichend um den Umgang mit diesen Waffen zu erlernen !!! Ich selber mache seit sehr vielen Jahren aktiv Karate und interessiere mich für verschiedene Kampftechniken auch mit Waffen und ich konnte mir sehr gut und schnell diese Fähigkeit (Tomahawk -Messerkampf) aneignen dank diesen Buch ! Man wird überrascht sein wie schnell und präzise diese Kampfart ist ! Wirklich sehr gut für das Geld !!!

Hier werden einem auf 284 Seiten die basics und alles rund um den tomahawk in gut verständlichem Englisch nähergebracht. Wie auch in Vol.2 werden die Bewegungsabläufe in Zeichnungen sehr gut präsentiert. Techniken werden Schritt für Schritt "zerlegt" und durchnummeriert und mit Bewegungspfeilen sg. Vektoren veranschaulicht.
Der Preisunterschied zwischen Vol.1 und 2 lässt sich mit der Seitenanzahl erklären.

Beide Bücher sind jeden Cent wert!

Kaufempfehlung!

HASH(0x9b8e2dbc) von 5 Sternen CHOPPING, THROWING AND SCALPING - THE TOMAHAWK AT WAR 1. Januar 2005
Von T.A.L. Dozer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I came across this book because I had bought a LaGana Tactical Tomahawk (VTAC) for use on one of my deployments to Iraq but it never came in time for me to bring, but was able to deploy back to Afghanistan with it in tote. I guess I thought I was going to do some close-quarters combatives on Taliban/Al-Qaeda vermin with the final blow eliminating the threat and ending it with the "trophy" scalping. Needles to say I did not ever scalp any one... or really ever planned to. But I now owned this Tomahawk and need something to do with it.
My intentions when purchasing this Tomahawk, was due to the history I knew of the weapon being used by Rangers (Rogers Rangers from the Colonel days mid 1700s) up to Vietnam and on into Iraq/Afghanistan by other units. Incidentally the VTAC was modeled after the style used by rangers in Vietnam. So knowing its historical use I decided I would give it a whirl and replace my "bowie knife" with it that I had carried on my kit.
So as I started to say I came across this book online as I order my Tomahawk, I bought the book not with the intention of learning how to wield this thing in combat but to read something with information on the historical background and history of the Tomahawk in combat. This book did just that the author went into painstaking detail to fit into this book whenever possible background information and historical material to authenticate his points on various aspects of this weapon in combat and training. The book primarily deals with early history of the weapon (17th and 18th century) and its employment in that timeframe. The book lays down a historically correct training regime of the axe, which is still applicable today for anyone, whishing to learn the art of using such a weapon. The author also covers in great detail the use of the "long knife" in conjunction with the tomahawk.
Over all the book met my expectations and was a quite enjoyable read, and I actually learned some interesting tips and techniques on the tomahawks use. The books layout is also enjoyable, with superb illustrated grayscale sketches that appear on practically every page, and are quite easily understandable for the martial artists stand point, providing step-by-step detailed instruction on every drill and move. Just superbly done.
I do not ever imagine myself using my Tomahawk on anyone in combat but I now always have it on hand even if it is just to open ammo crates or bust through doors. If anyone reading this is thinking of buying a Tomahawk, look up the company "American Tomahawk" they simple make the best and with it buy this book! I look forward to reading the author's first book.

HASH(0x9b8ef81c) von 5 Sternen The Most In-Depth Book of its Kind 16. August 2004
Von Gareth Thomas - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
With the numerous books on the market concerned with tomahawk work, Mr. McLemore goes the extra step in producing a work that not only is a fun read, but extremely informative, avoiding technical jargon and getting right to the grit. The book is written in such a way that you can get through it in a matter of hours, but can also use each individual chapter as a separate area of study. Each chapter, from the most basic work concerning grips, stances and guards, through to circular catches, interceptions and two hand work contains detailed drawings, footwork charts and daily drills to help perfect each technique.

For those who may argue upon the grounds of historical texts, or the lack thereof, the book plainly states that the author has gone back to original sources, first-hand accounts of personal combat and builds upon the techniques of western Europe and their influence and integration into the fighting arts of early Americans and Native Americans as well. When he has deviated from the historical into supposition and / or extrapolation, Mr. McLemore is quite able to back up his theories.

I was fortunate enough to have been able to train briefly with Mr. McLemore at the Internation Swordsmanship and Martial Arts Convention in Lansing, Michigan this year, and the application of his text to full combat is very easy. The basics can be laid down in under 90 minutes and easily honed with the help of the training sections.

Both the modern fighter and the Historical Reenactor will find great value in this book

HASH(0x9b8ef75c) von 5 Sternen An amazing book, well researched and well done!! 16. Juni 2005
Von Steven M. Huff - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
In this book, just as in his earlier title, "Bowie and Big knife fighting", author Dwight McLemore once again presents a well researched work examining the fighting arts of early America. It is clear that Mr. McLemore has done his homework on this one - presenting a realistic, effective, and no-nonsense approach to how the tomahawk was most likely used in early America.

I have seen and heard comments about the techniques in the book being based on Fillipino martial arts, but here is where the true history come through - the techniques are actually based on the older, western fighitng arts. The angles of attack, flourishing patterns, etc. are all clearly taken from teh early western fighitng arts, which definately pre-date similar techniques from Filipino martial arts (and in fact, evidence suggest that many of the Filipino arts were developed from Spanish sword arts).

Mr. McLemore even examines techniques for carrying and drawing the tomahawk, adding to the realistic approach he takes with the weapon.

Add to this the beautful illustrations, again clearly reminiscent of those early, classical western fighting manuals, and you have an amazingly thorough and well thought out book.

Having degrees in early American history as well as several years of studying martial arts, both Western and Eastern, I can say that this is a book that is long overdue, and highly recommend it to reenactors, martial artists, and historians alike.

HASH(0x9b8f79f0) von 5 Sternen Finally a book on close fighting with a Tomahawk! 17. Juni 2005
Von James N. Smith - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
The Fighting Tomahawk is a unique book as it focuses on close fighting instead of the usual throwing of the Tomahawk. This is a must for any person interested in Hand to Hand combat, Frontier fighting, the Historical Old West or Western Martial Arts in general. With only two movies that I know of: The Last of the Mohicans with Daniel Day Lewis and The Patriot with Mel Gibson that show actual realistic close quarter fighting with a 'Hawk it is about time a book was written that taught this to the aspiring Tomahawk fighter.

Having trained with Mr. McLemore I can definately say his concepts work AND WORK WELL! I can't recommend this book enough! The concepts in this book could easily be applied to all sorts of weapons (hachets, hammers, crowbars, etc). So whatever your reason for buying any martial arts books make sure this book is on your shelf. Don't leave an empty space in your knowledge!

HASH(0x9b8f7b94) von 5 Sternen An Excellently Researched Work 28. Juni 2005
Von John Lennox - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This is an excellent book. The techniques within are understandable to someone completely inexperienced with the weapon, yet still challenging and resourceful to someone who has worked with it a great deal. Mr. McLemore's research is admirable. I have studied various styles of historic combat as my cognate studies for my PhD, and can attest to the lack of written information with regard to these weapons.

I have done a great deal of study in military sabre, which is referred to numerous times in this book. Mr. McLemore's references to it are spot on, and to adapt the tomahawk moulinets and angles of attack to those used in sabre seems to me to be the most plausible way to approach this weapon.

Mr. McLemore brings forth many historical points in this book. Having done a great deal of research in these areas myself, I do not find any inconsistencies or blatant errors in his facts. He also is very clear that some points he brings up are educated guesses, as there exists no actual documentation. This is good scholarship. In historic combat, there will always be instances where there is no documentation for our theories. This is where we apply our study of combat theory, and the weapon itself to fill in the holes. So long as we acknowledge to our readers that we are hypothesizing, there is nothing wrong with this type of research. This is what Mr. McLemore does in these instances, and I could not possibly argue with his findings.

This book is extremely valuable for the reader interested in becoming proficient in this weapon. I would encourage all students of martial arts to read it, especially those students of Filipino Martial Arts. Similarities to Kali do exist, however, the axe head alone gives a dynamic that is missing from Kali, and it is always interesting to see how two styles of fighting, such as Tomahawk and Kali, or even Katana and Longsword, can be so similar in their concepts even though there is no evidence of one influencing the other during the period of their inception.
