Written Summary:

I've often wondered what I would do if someday I was no longer physically able to punch, kick, or grapple effectively. Well after watching the 4 "Canemaster" tapes we were sent, I'll no longer worry about this.

The folks at "Canemasters" have in my opinion, demonstrated through their tape series, how to use the cane as a very effective self defense weapon. Yet how many people have ever thought of using a cane this way? Admittedly I never had. Unlike a lot of weapons, the cane can be taken virtually anywhere legally. What a great idea.

And with the "Canemaster" four tape series, not only can you learn how to effectively use it as a self defense weapon, but learn the rank requirements for their Goju-Shorei weapons system too.

The next time I'm injured in my martial arts training, I know what I'll be carrying around with me while I'm waiting to heal. And even more importantly, when the day arrives that I'm no longer able to punch and kick, guess what I'll be carrying?
