Meet the Instructor: Dr. Ed Thomas began learning functional Indian Club skills in the early-1950's at around the age of 8/9.  He later studied classical club swinging for 9mo. in Burma, and has learned from other teachers of this ancient art in the United States, Germany and South Korea.  After many years of study and practice, Dr. Thomas began teaching his Northern Illinois University students in the 1980's. Throughout the 1990's, he included Indian Clubs in the physical readiness training doctrine he developed for the United States Army.
