    Canemaster Program?

    Hello everyone,

    I was wondering if anyone has had experience with the Canemaster program/instructional series. Looks interesting, but I don't want to waste the money if it isn't functional instruction.


    Thanks

    If you really want function cane instruction then go to the nearest old folks home and find an old black guy that appears to be sleeping with a cane across his lap. Meet your new instructor.

    After reviewing the site ( http://www.canemasters.com/cmia.aspx ), I stand by my above recommendation.

    Here is one of their licensed schools ( http://www.naturalmotionmartialarts.com/programs.html) featuring Cane - Do and Broken Wing Kenpo.

    Not sure who thats directed at, but I was asking a serious question. Anyway, I guess it's a nice set of "welcome to bullshido.com" posts so far.

    Thanks
    Good canes ... pricey but consistant . As for the video series ... **** learning from a video . Even if it is "funtional" you are still trying to learn something you expect to save your life from a video and maybe a seminar or two .

    Take some FMA or something that teaches actual stick fighting . I promise they can show you , hands on and right there , how to start to use a cane for SD . I promise they aren't going to tell you to watch some videos .
    I don't mean to sound bitter, cold, or cruel, but I am, so that's how it comes out.

    Personally I would not recommend the CaneMaster course if you're looking for practical self defense skills. The basic attack/defense patterns are OK but their program is better suited to winning weapon display demos than to actually fighting.

    IMO you'd be better off with a course offering unchoreographed, scenario-based ("alive") cane work against opponents wearing body armor. I believe that Ted Truscott of Canada runs a course along these lines, but his website seems to be down at the moment.
