Did not quite meet my expectations.
It is what it is.
They demonstrate which cane is best for the art of cane self defense, anatomy of the body how striking blows can injure an attacker, stretching/warm up exercises, basic blocks, basic strikes, basic defense techniques and kata's.
I could care less about a kata, they are usless unless you are wanting a ranking in cane fu and you have no physical limitations in order to preform them,they are also redundant which will cause someone who needs to learn for self defense to get stuck in a repetitive mode to where they have less diversability in other techniquesthat the video should have and could have demonstrated.
They should have left out the katas and spent more time on more defense take down techniques that can be performed by anyone who actually needs a cane in order to have some degree of mobility however that is just what I took away from watching the video Just review the segments you need to learn and skip the others which worked for me.
like I said for a rank beginner looking for a status belt in cane fu this video would be an excellent first stepping stone at getting that second rank from white to gold belt I suppose.
as I stated above it is what it is.

For $1.99, worth the view. Thought it was professionally presented. The only irritant is that after every demonstration, they had to say "this is a highly effective technique for".....fill in the blank. I doubt that there is enough empirical evidence to say that with any certainty.

FIVE stars, not just one
By J. Ttee
I purchased this video many years ago, fearing I might end up in a wheelchair. (So far, however, I can still walk with the assistance of a stout cane from Canemasters.)
I strongly disagree with "freedom reader," who is so upset with "Crandall's affiliation with Canemasters." What better association could there possibly be?
Further, I know of no other video than this one, when it comes to self-defense from a wheelchair. If any of you readers out there ever hear of a better one, please let the rest of us know. Meanwhile, I highly recommend Cane-Fu: Moving Beyond Disabilities.
