Cane – Hooking Techniques
This page provides details about hooking techniques used in self-defense situations with a cane. While a cane can act like a short staff (i.e. Jo staff), it also has the benefit of its hook. The cane’s hook allows martial artists to trip, trap or choke an attacker.
Some martial artists think that canes have an advantage over many other traditional martial arts weapons because they can be legally carried on the street (as they are seen as tools to assist people with walking).
