The term Cane-Fu was first coined in an article in the Wall Street Journal about a program developed by an internationally expert personal safety techniques for seniors using a walking cane, Mark Shuey, Sr. Both Mr. Crandall and Mr. Stalloch are fully certified in this program and oversee the Northeast Headquarters for this program. They have documented the program in this one-hour instructional DVD. Topics covered include using a walking cane against grabs and punches, personal safety techniques for people with use of only one arm (such as stroke survivors), techniques from a wheel chair, and techniques from the ground (as if you were knocked down and could not easily get up). This DVD teaches how to maximize your potential to take control of your own personal safety. These are some of the same techniques and topics covered in seminars we present. One of our seminars was featured on MSNBCs TodayShow.Com.
This book by Grandmaster Crandall and Linda Moller dovetails with the Cane-Fu DVD, expanding the Moving Beyond Disabilities program to include topics for the blind and visually impaired, people using walkers, additional cane techniques, and common assault scenarios. The book is proactive, presenting awareness information to avoid potentially dangerous situations, but also including the physical responses that can make a difference if faced with an assault. Step-by-Step pictures make it an essential guide for anyone seeking to improve their understanding of how to use their abilities and strengths to feel more secure in a constantly changing world. The book also includes exercises to help maintain mobility. These are some of the same techniques and concepts presented in our seminars. Some of our techniques from this topic were featured in an article in the UK magazine Combat.
