A Patu is a generic term for a club used by the Maori. The word Patu in the Maori language means to strike, hit, beat, or subdue.
These types of short-handled clubs were mainly used as a striking weapon. The blow administered with this weapon was a horizontal thrust straight from the shoulder at the enemy’s temple.
