Cane – Self-Defense Techniques

Cane – Self-Defense Techniques

This section looks at how some martial arts teach a variety of cane-based self-defense techniques. A number of martial arts styles train with canes such as HapkidoBartitsu, etc. Moreover, canes can be used by senior citizens or those with walking issues in self-defense situations.

A cane has multiple advantages as a martial arts weapon due to the use of its tip (for pokes and thrusts) and its long wooden or metal shaft (for strikes, blocks and joint locks). Moreover, a cane also has the unique advantage of its hook which helps with tripping, trapping or choking an attacker.
