Club swinging is traced back to Indian at least 5000 years ago. From there it is believed it traveled to Iran,and Iraq. The British brought it to America. Additionally, it was a training tool for wrestlers,and Gladiators.
Today it is popular with chiropractors,and athletes to repair shoulder issues,gain range of motion,strengthen ligaments,and tendons of the whole shoulder girdle, forearm, and wrist. It also works a person’s neuro pathways. The U.S.Army had battalions that trained with Indian Clubs. Today, in Indian children start Indian Club swinging at an early age, and train every day.
