The Cane-Fu phenomenom continues to grow in popularity. Every week, people from all over contact us looking to get certified as Cane-Fu Instructors. They’re eager to tap the market and want to be as prepared as possible. We’re here to support them and ensure they know exactly how to run a professional program.
The age range of most Cane-Fu participants is late 60’s-80’s years of age. This is where most Cane-Fu insturctors focus their attention.
The Cane-Do Kai however, encourages instructors to educate the public on the value of taking up American Cane Self Defense at an earlier age. There is a definite advantage to starting cane training in your 50’s as oppossed to your 60s-80’s. Just look at a Master of any martial art that focuses on a weapon (knife, stick, etc.) Most of them started in their youth which gives them a big advantage over those who start trainnig as seniors. A 60-70 year old knife, stick or cane Master is a force to be reckon with…for anyone.
Why wait until you’re in need of a cane to start learning how to use one for both exercise and self defense? If you start cane training at the age of 50, by the time you’re 60 , you’re a Master of the Cane, empty hand defense, and a Master of yourself.
Don’t wait until you’re in need of a cane, start learning the art now. Don’t have access to a Certified Instructor? Purchase the CDK USA DVD series and/or become an online dojo member. We are blessed with technology that allows you to learn from the comfort of your home anywhere you live.
