Using a cane for self defense can be very effective

TechniquesLance MurrayComment

Do you think a cane is just for old folks or people with physical disabilities? Think again. Back around the turn of the century, it was quite fashionable for men to carry “walking sticks. "TZD is the abbreviation for Tai Zhang Dao (pronounced tie-jung-dow in Chinese) and translates to “The Extreme Cane." It is a method or style of martial art stemming from Tai Chi Cane Fu that effectively employs an ordinary cane for personal protection and fitness in a proactive manner that is not taught anywhere else.  It should be noted that this course is not just for men, it is ideal for women too along with any responsible young adults.  It goes on the concept that there are "no rules" in street altercations and focuses the training accordingly. It takes into account that most people don't want to waste a lot of time learning to protect themselves with complicated forms of defense techniques but want to get down to the “nitty-gritty" hardcore personal protection forms to rapidly dispatch an opponent confronting them. It is based on the creator's rule that: "You don't have to be fast, you only need to be first" and we show you how.  Training for the style utilizes simple, natural movements that are easy to learn and remember. It has a short learning curve and is unlike the formal training required in normal martial arts which can take years to master. The training incorporates elements of physical fitness exercises as well. Learn more at  https://www.udemy.com/tzd-introduction-to-using-a-cane-for-personal-protection/?couponCode=LessThanLethal
