Hi, my name is Dan Clay and I'm the founder and education director at The DF Academy (DFA).

If you’re new to steel mace training, here’s a brief summary of its history.

The mace has been used as a weapon of war for thousands of years.

The first maces ever discovered were made of stick and flint, these primitive weapons date back to the Stone Age 10,000 years ago.

In the Puranic age 2,000 years ago the mace was the weapon of choice for the fierce Hindu Warriors and by the ferocious Persian warriors 1000 years ago.

Then, in the 12th Century, the Europeans adopted the mace to penetrate new plate armour and chain mail.

And, the Pehlwani wrestlers of India have been training with the mace for centuries. In India, the mace is known as the ‘Gada’, which is made from bamboo and concrete.

Now, the West has embraced the steel mace with top wrestlers, elite athletes and functional strength personal trainers all using the mace for its unrivalled qualities in improving functional strength gains.
