I am looking for a proven cane fighting system. Most proven systems appear to require an agile in shape guy. I want something that an elderly, half cripple, person could use. I want it incase I am ever injured, because I can take a Cane internationally where every I want, and I can use it later in life to teach to seniors and such.

I'm having a hard time imagining an "elderly, half cripple" person beating down street thugs with a cane.

If you're looking for a cane system that works for the infirm I'd suggest this:

I wouldn't recommend the CaneMasters programs for anything other than recreational training.

I don't really like their instructional stuff, but I do approve of the canes they make.

Trolling twice in one day from the same account about two different subjects is pretty cool, man.

No idea about Cane Masters. I occasionally train with a cane and do a few cane forms, but can't really vouch for it. Logic and common sense agree, if you're old enough to require a cane (and aren't just wobbling on an injured leg,) you just aren't strong enough to defend yourself from the likes of Choson Ninja who's probably looking for more crack money, and doesn't feel like giving any more hand jobs behind the internet cafe.

I think Bartitsu is big on cane use. If they train in a live manner, go with that.

It is and most of them do, but again, Bartitsu cane fighting dates from a time when canes were fashionable accessories carried by able-bodied gents, and the fighting style is quite athletic. There's a bit of Bartitsu-flavored stick fighting at the end of this clip:

Pip pip, jolly good.
I'd actually want to take up an art with (yeah, we raped this one to death already) bar and tits in the title.

That, and I finally got around to seeing Sherlock Holmes. Let's do this.

http://www.bartitsu.org/index.php/bartitsu-today/modern-bartitsu-clubs-and-training/ is a good first step, likewise joining the Bartitsu Forum - http://sports.groups.yahoo.com/group/Bartitsu_Forum/ .

or not.

So I went to the seminar hosted by Robin Dawkins with Chris Bird and it was very enjoyable. The best piece of advice given was not to think of techniques and drilling but to explore and this was very good advice.

From an initial position we were able to link it to our Trad JJ Syllabus and work in Locks and Throws. This also meant that we were able to assimilate their guidance and make it our own.

Anyway, I enjoyed and will likely explore further.
