    Cane fighting?

    Is this a modern day practice, or an older one? I have found some evidence of it showing up in the early 1900s, but was wondering if it dated back to China.

    (Sorry if I have the wrong forum )

    Unfortuneatly Wikipedia is not the all knowing god. I just wanted to ask here, where at least some people seem to know what they are talking about,

    Why would European cane fighting have absolutely any connection to China?

    Did you ever hear about how Newton and Leibniz independently came up with Calculus despite having never collaborated? They had completely different notation systems that lent themselves to completely different applications. But both were undeniably Calculus.

    I saw some cane fighting techniques done by CMA guy. Good stuff, so I believe some cane fighting comes from China.

    Hapkido has cane techiques.

    The cane has a larger radius at the crook.

    Used for striking, blocking, chokes and joint locks.

    Then again, some of the techniques are probably good for demo only without a lifetime of practice.

    This manual was written by Mr. H.G. Lang who was a British Officer of the Indian Police. It was written in 1923, and describes itself as a method of fighting that although is a scientific one does not require special training and can be practised by men, women and children.
    Find it here.

    What an obscure reference. Are you reading Neil Stephenson or something?

    Anyways

    European Cane fighting was an of shoot of Savate and came from fencing and a desire for self defense and need to hit people at a time when you were not allowed to carry swords any more.

    there's an old booklet about sport in Glasgow in Victorian and Edwardian times and one of the illustrations was my dad's uncle about to fight a cane duel with another middle class type in a Glasgow park watched by a crowd of other midle class men. I have been looking for thsi book for ages as my dad has lost his copy and a few people have expressed interest in seeing thsi illustration.
