Exciting news! I’ve started an Amazon affiliate store! The store is called the Pat Smith Martial Arts Store, and it’s stocked with the sort of products you’ll need to practice martial arts and prepare yourself for potential self defense situations. The store is an affiliate of Amazon’s, which means you get your trusted service and reliability that they provide, but I’ve only selected their products that are the products I myself buy and use, or would buy and use if I was in the need. So, you don’t have to search Amazon or the web for hundreds and thousands of options, questioning which you should buy. You can just visit my online store and you’ll see I have pre-selected the best products that are available from Amazon. You can visit the site directly by clicking one of the hyperlinks in this post, or you can go via my page which is in my site’s menu, taking you to the Pat Smith Martial Arts Store. At present my store is stocked with select martial arts books, flexible weapons (like rope darts), long weapons (like spears), palm sticks (like kubotans, pens I recommend, flashlights I recommend)–like those recommended in my popular book on palm sticks, self-defense knives (a very popular category), staffs (practical staff-like weapons that can be used for practical self-defense), swords (both sharp usable blades, as well as training kung fu weapons for forms), training equipment (like punching bags, gloves, weights, iron palm equipment), training weapons (rubber, foam, and wood), and videos. I’ll be updating the store regularly, so you’ll want to check back often!
