    Finally bit the bullet and ordered one from Canemasters
    Good choice. Those really are the best.

    Looking back over years of training with the jo staff (approx. the length from your armpit to the ground) it is clear to me that regular, combat training with the cane is essential. We always drill in freeform - someone comes from behind and tries to rip the cane away from you, they come from in front and seize it and wrestle you for it, etc.

    This weapon only works well if you relax and go with it. The "death grip" always loses. Relax and let it roll in your hand. The cane will always find its own way through a combative situation and, if necessary, just let it go and use your striking striking skills after. Don't fixate on it as a striking tool.

    If you have any kind of experience rowing a canoe or a kayak, that's the kind of motion to use with a stick. Row with it. Hook and row. The opponent will go down smooth and easy.

    Very nice canes on the website. However, I have one of the stock canes listed whereby I paid less than half the price. If fact, it looks very much like the 'Bubba Stick'. By the way, straight canes are very cool looking although they will fall down at least twice a day.

    I have the video arriving today, planning on attending the TDI workshop in April on Impact Weapons. Anyone training with canes in Western PA/Eastern Ohio? I'm about 1 hr from Clev/Pittsburgh.

    Sorry for the thread highjack.

    I have had some martial arts training with the bo-staff [/B and also have used some of the techniques in the training videos from Walking Canes for mobility, self defense, exercise and rehabilitation - by Cane Masters. The nice thing about their training techniques are that they are designed for people with some from of physical disability.
    WHen I was first introduced to the bo-staff I thought it was a waste of time and effort. I was used to the much shorter Arnis/Esrima style and the bo-staff just didn't seem particularly useful to me. I've changed my mind. And, I think it is a good way to get used to using a stick (cane or whatever) for SD. Was it Shockwave above who said if you can row a kayak, its that kind of motion? Yes, though there are lots of other moves possible--stuff like pokes and center locks.

    My vanity frankly keeps me from carrying a cane, so I keep a flashlight handy as an impact weapon, but I have no doubt that for those willing to take a cane, it is probably about the most potentially useful SD device short of a fully lethal weapon. And for us older folks, it doesn't garner one second of attention.

    Another reason I like bo-staff training now is that I realized if you are holding a rifle or shotty, the methods can be used with that as a means of avoiding the need to fire. Few want to get smacked in the back of the neck with the rifle butt, or get their elbow smashed with the muzzle. And, the bo-staff training will help with retention.

    I've been carrying my Canemasters hickory cane for 3 years now. With normal care, an annual wipedown with 000 steel wool and a light oiling, it has held up perfectly and still draws appreciative remarks from others.
    Because it's a wooden cane, you can carry it anywhere without question.

    I just received a nice looking Hickory Cane from WUPEN, have a Falcon Cane on order along with extra heavy stick from Purple Heart Armory, will post pics when received. I'm also looking at the Cold Steel Walking Stick for a more classy looking stick, as my girl gives me massive grief for using a "ugly" wood cane when we go out. Personally, I don't care and like the look, very cool.
