Indian clubs design around the world
The club as a symbol of power
In the west, scepters and the Polish bulavas were also used by authority figures.
The club as a training form
The original fitness centers
The British influence
For reference, in the 1850’s, the military issued “regulation clubs” weighed 2kg a piece. The Indian club was now easy to mass produce, cheap, highly transportable and every person in a group of 100 or more people, could have his own set. In effect, the Brits appropriated the Indian clubs as their own.

Indian clubs is an art, not a science
