What is the Kyusho Hapkido Cane Defense System? And why do I consider it to be important enough today to bring a course out on it at Kyusho Jitsu University? This article will address all this right now.
The walking cane is the only traditional weapon in my root art of Hapkido. When the cane first made its appearance in the world it was a "status symbol" for the wealthy. People really did not consider it to be anything else. Rich people and royals had canes. Today however it is linked with the elderly or someone with issues walking. And while all that is true, it is also perhaps aside from a firearm, the best self defense too available today to ANYONE who wishes to carry one.
The western world first real look at Hapkido was in the movie the Trail Of Billy Jack. During the Hapkido training scene with Hapkido legend Bong Soon Hon you get a look at the use of the walking cane in the art. For many people this is the first and ONLY exposure they have ever gotten to a cane. Below is the scene from the movie I am referring too.
The cane was not taught to me from my Korean Hapkido Grand Master. Grand Master Oh is referenced in my bio and other articles, rather it began as a result of my son contacting Grand Master Mark Sheuy of Cane Masters.
My son Curt devoted about 2 years to this learning after which we began to incorporate it into the style we were creating that would later be called Hon Sang Mu Sa Hapkido. The cane was turned into a extremely effective self defense system using the movements of the Octagon and incorporating the Principles of Kyusho Jitsu into it.
The walking cane truly the ultimate self defense tool! Why is this? Because legally it is not view as being a weapon, it is viewed as a tool to assist someone with a disability to walk. This is part of the amazing power the cane possesses!
I get a lot of comments from people in the USA talking about carrying a firearm. Now I am all for that! However this is simply not the reality of the majority of the world. In Canada is it VERY hard to get a permit to carry a concealed weapon. Plus you will never be allowed to carry it everywhere you go!
In the USA you can have a permit in one state. Yet in a second your permit would be invalid making the gun illegal. This does not EVER happen with a cane. You can take a cane everywhere including when you board a plane!
Your cane can always be at your side! Below is a little video that is part of my Hon Sang Mu Sa Hapkido Home Study Course on Cane Defense. This is taught at Red Belt.
I am hoping this article will help you see the power and advantage of learning the Kyusho Jitsu Cane Defense System.
There are more advantages to this system than I am going to mention here. But I will add one more!
And what is that other BIG advantage? Any attacker will underestimate your ability to defend yourself giving you an enormous advantage right off the bat!
And before I forget! One of the most powerful benefits of the cane is ability to control the distance of the attack! Making it perfect for training in knife defense.
