People often inquire about how to effectively use cane for self defense. More specifically, they want to know
whether there is a formal system of training which includes sound basics, and a path for growth and development of more sophisticated skills.
Frankly, there are many such paths, and as the cane arts become more popular, more teachers are emerging into the marketplace.
Over the years, I had opportunity to work through several cane systems. When time permitted, I tried to improve
on what I learned, and to push it forward ... creating a more efficient vehicle of learning for those who followed.
Here, I will share some of the steps and processes which proved to be of value in my personal research.
