In theory all sorts of maces would do. In practice, however, we find that a lighter mace is best for learning a new movement. A weight of around 4/5kg or 9-11lbs would be best suited as a light weight. We would also advise a length of a 100cm to 110cm. Shorter maces have a different feeling of momentum to it, and it changes the dynamic of certain exercises. Longer maces will prevent you from doing a lot of exercises due to the immense length of them. So get at least a light mace, even though you think it’s too light. It will be your buddy for a lifetime.
Right now there are 5 different options to choose from. The spectrum differs from very detailed and advanced to short and beginner.
Mace Beginner Series. This series takes about one hour to complete. It is for the person who has just received their mace and has no clue where to start. Harbert takes you through the basics and you’ll be able to perform your first flow.
Mace Flow 101. A complete series that is perfect for a beginner, but also for the experienced swinger. Why both? It focusses on a complete foundational approach to the mace, and teaches techniques specifically to help you transition with two hands. This course is designed to be a stepping stone for the Mace Masterclass as it builds confidence, knowledge, and skill.
FridayFlow Series. This series is a series of exercises made every week over a timespan of three years. It is great when you need some creativity and depth in your mace knowledge. The course is segmented into exercises and flows, but does not have a structure to it.
6 Week Workout Program. This program teaches you to move with the mace. It starts all the way at the beginning (similar to the mace beginner series) and than increases in complexity every week. It contains three workouts every week and by the end of it you’ll have developed your skill, strength, and conditioning.
Mace Masterclass Series. The most extensive program for the mace (maybe even the most extensive fitness program ever) with more than 8 hours of techniques and teachings. This Masterclass will provide a complete foundation, and structure for you to approach the mace. Not just a bunch of movements, you’ll learn how everything is interconnected and will learn how to start creating on your own from the foundations presented in the course. This course forms the basis of the Dutch Flow Method.
