SELF DEFENSE DVDS
I have created four self defense DVDs to date. I have noticed too many self defense DVDS are created by martial artists for martial artists. If you haven’t spent years studying martial arts, are getting older or haven’t exercised for awhile, these DVDs are for you. You will learn some easy self defense movements and techniques that will enable you to use your cane, stick or flashlight as a powerful self defense tool. You can combine these movements in multiple ways to create many powerful self defense techniques.. If you have ever played tennis, billiards, swung a baseball bat or for that matter gone dancing, you can learn these movements. Many cultures developed a powerful self defense system using canes and sticks. From the Korean style of Hapkido Cane fighting, Philippine stick fighting to Irish Whiskey Stick Dancing, I have borrowed elements of these styles in a simplified system.
