some of the movement immediately reminded me of Okinawan chiishi hojo undo.

Pretty interesting, Ed. There are some videos on the site of some Chinese excercises that are very similar, although the "clubs" are a bit different.

I recently went to another MMA school near where I live (sort of) to check out the class. While it was not my cup of tea, as they emphasized conditioning more than sparring, the instructor was heavily into using what looked like weighted baseball bats for very similar excercise regimens.

Cool link.

While not connected, it reminds me that of the article about JEMAS article on Iranian wrestling....that that nation has a long and interesting martial arts tradition of its own. (Nice balance to the negative image currently being portrayed in '300'.)

Sheesh, I thought from the title you were talking about Iranian/Indian DANCE clubs.
