    He waives his staff and makes a sudden forward thrust at them

    I'm concerned about the word combination "He waives his staff and makes a sudden forward thrust at them". Is it normal?

    It sounds OK to me. However, you have spelt "waves" wrong. "Waives" has a totally different meaning.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.
