Defensive Cane Fighting (DVD)
By David Kenik and Ralph Mroz
With the capacity to provide different levels of responding force, from intermediate to deadly, a cane can be a vital defensive tool where traditional weapons are prohibited. This "Cane Fighting" training section of the "Armed Response" video series shows you how to select, carry and practice with a cane, and explores the tactics and techniques drawn from the martial arts that make the cane a potent and highly effective weapon.
Please note: Because the cane can inflict lethal injuries, it is strongly advised that anyone carrying a cane for self-defense be familiar with the rules of "Responsible Use of Lethal Force," as explained in the "Armed Response" DVD of the same name.
Topics covered in “Defensive Cane Fighting” include:
- Levels of Responding Force
- Cane Styles
- Origination of Cane Techniques
- Striking Zones
- Power Creation
- Support Hand Techniques
- Two-Handed Techniques
- Practice Routines
- Walking With a Cane
- BONUS: Roof Blocks and Wing Blocks
- Much, Much More!
- Running time: 1 hr. 4 min.
“A cane is an exceptional defensive tool and can go where weapons are banned. Clearly explains and shows hand and foot work, strike zones, blocking, fighting styles, one- or two-hand uses, power creation, more.” – Alan Korwin, Bloomfield Press
