The British Quarterstaff Association teaches men the art and technique of the quarterstaff, a weapon whose use predates written history.

Today, the British Quarterstaff Association provides men with a form of training that is rooted in British traditions, through regular classes and events.

As a combat form, the use of the quarterstaff requires learning sets of attacks and defences, coordination of eye, hand and body and how to focus intention.

More fundamental than these is learning how to use posture and weight shifting to direct energy economically. Still more fundamental is adopting the approach of the warrior.

Working regularly with the staff develops strength. Confronting fear develops courage. Observing the effective use of techniques develops skill. The aim of the warrior is to use strength, courage and skill in all circumstances, not just when he holds a staff.
