Walking cane self defense: Sticky Cane for the wheelchair user


hi guys and welcome to the sons of Cane
YouTube channel this week we are going to do something a little bit different we’ve had a some
correspondents in from some people so we’re going to look at sticky cane and
twirling in the chair okay guys we’ve been asked some
questions about twirling figure of eight horn changes obviously if your not
involved with cane masters you won’t kown these things but good thing to get
involved in so this end with the ferrule is called the tip this is the
shaft this is the crook and here this is the horn and if you look at the cane
master designs you see there’s various types of canes crooks and horns to
suit what you want to do question we had is with twirling standing and
seated and in a chair so if those who dont know side twirl figure of eight these I practice
a lot I use these a lot both hands always remembering the spare hands wants to be in the guard position and then if you look at the way the horn is at the moment it’s
facing up the horn change is when you reverse it so it’s the other way up
there are applications for this and it’s something you will need to know when
you’re doing techniques because you will need to change it rapidly and for a
holster so as you can see seated position same thing changes the dynamics
slightly again guard hand up and twirl figure of eight horn change
you cant holster very well because of the chair good thing to practice if you do
really perfect your technique when you’re sitting down but you can’t get
your hips and everything involved it’s same with the helicopter you can still do it
but you’ll find there is a little bit less power but if you’re going to start
teaching people with disabilities this is an important thing to do and again it
helps get your technique down pat because you can’t cheat with this one
you do actually need to rely on your technique
well as Chris just mentioned you can do it in a wheelchair it’s a full length
cane although I do have a half length that I use Mainly at home from
here you’ve got the side twirl again hand in guard position and you’ve got the
figure of eight and you got the horn change that’s with
brakes off lot more power lot more stability when the brakes are on right
guys this is a little thing that I like to call sticky cane
I don’t think I invented it its something i discovered about eight nine years ago
when I was training with another club with the cane we tend to do things a
lot slower and a lot less force this is just to protect the people were training
with and people were grabbing my cane and I got to thinking what what happens
if I’m a little bit slow and they do grab my cane how can I defend against
this so we started doing a few little drills started messing about with it and
over the last five years Chris and I have been working together and we just
have a look play around and it all is it just angles and changing the force and
patttern it’s a very Eb and flow type of martial arts I’ll bring Chris in so if
I’m in the defensive position and Chris Jumps in and grabs the cane okay we’ve now got force
against force I’ve got the whole range of movements I can use to pull over if
he comes back against I can pull and will you just keep going round and round
pull through grab hands if you’ve got a double hand grab on it I can come under
and use his whole arm to go through there is no set pattern with this you feel
what the other person is doing you can see their hand and you can see which way will give them strength or weakness if they start to bring pressure on that side you
just bring it back and all it is if they’ve got the control that on your
both hands and it becomes a pushing pulling match let go of the cane okay so
we’re going to do now couple of little drills
Chris will put some protection on and just show you what sort of strikes you
can get from a drill we’re going to be slow and careful because this thing even
at this distance will hurt if hit in the head as you can see my training buddy Chris
he’s got his body protection on if Chris wants to come forward for a bit its quite robust again i don’t want to hit far or hard so we look at coming through on the cane you just a one hand grab just by pull push movement pulling here
pushing there mind your hand a second and it’s just a
strike again up-and-down movement will go to the head you come from the outside
in from there and then jab the while I one i tend to like you use the crook bring
it over and just straight to the groin are you wearing a box no safety tip folks
also you’ve got your small strikes here which you could just in head grab and
pull you’ve got the pokes from there obviously balance point which is hips
groin or if they come up with punch you come here and you’ve got their knee okay this is a just a very slow very
light lock flow drill or we call sticky cane back so just going to come here as we’ve ever thing we teach play
with it this is not the definitive this is not the be all this is a principle
that we use and it is just the opposite motion see where their hand is go the
opposite way you start getting pressure go back again work with it and have fun in
our system of karate that we do we do something called pushing hands we did Wing Chun
they do chi sal those who’ve never done this or seen it before central
principle with the way we do it again you’ve got a guard hand so as I’m
pushing he’s not resisting my force he’s just redirecting it so the drill to
start with is feeling and what I feeling for is where is going I can
feel it’s pushing that way towards me so If i go with it I can put him off
balance I can start applying blocks or I might be
trying he’s coming down and each time I’m just trying to relocate his force I’m not using force on force so I might be trying to come around
so each way so you’re bending with the force so when you’re doing this with the
cane its the same principle you’re looking for where it can go and then taking the
force and using it in Wing Chun they do Chi sal exactly the same I’m
going to try and move so what I’m not doing is applying force we’re just
seeing where that energy is coming or taking it when redirecting it constantly
it’s a constant flow so it’s the same principle with the cane so if you’ve
never done this before it’s worth training finding someone who can do it
but practicing it then you get the idea especially with the cane there’s a lot
of force in the cane if you can redirect that energy of someone pulling the cane
and direct it back on themselves it’s a really good technique especially again
limited mobility try sitting in a chair you can get
the wheelchair just to see the difference it applies to training okay
