edit History of percussive maintenance

The origins of percussive maintenance have been disputed, and throughout time, many stories of its origin have been told.

If an animal was stupid enough to step out of line and attack a person, the person would use a stick, or a spear, or a flaming spear, or some combination of the three to quickly force the animal into submission.
