SESSION-Crook Work; self-defense techniques using the crook of the cane with one or both hands.
Arguably the crook of the cane is what sets this self-defense tool apart from all others. With the crook, one can trap, throw, strike, coerce and ultimately control and/or subdue an attacker. Join GM Shuey as he demonstrates a wide variety of techniques using this unique and effective tool.

SESSION-The Cane, Elbows, Knees and Bob!
