Using a Walking Cane for Self-defense – Man bloodied with own walking cane

Over sized walking cane -Extra strong weight supporting walking cane
Extra strong walking cane compared to our normal size walking cane

I came across this article (below) this morning and it’s something I thought about for some time. I have a few customers who buy extra strong walking canes to defend themselves, or by having a stout walking cane might make a potential assailant think twice about harming you. This reminds me of a few words my father once told me, “If you bring a weapon to a fight you better be prepared to use it, because if you’re not willing to use it on someone there is a good chance someone will use it on you”.  Of course I am not saying the gentlemen in the article below had this intension, but being out late at night makes you wonder why?

Man Bloodied with own Walking Cane

By: Mike Aldax | 11/21/11 8:38 AM

A man was viciously beaten with his own walking cane Friday, police said.

The victim’s head was gushing blood when cops found him at the corner of Precita Avenue and Folsom Street, in the area of Precita Park.

One of two goons approached him around 1:20 a.m. and sprayed his jacket with a spray can. The victim yelled at the suspect, demanding to know why he did it, police at Ingleside Station said.

The suspect then snatched the victim’s cane and struck him several times in the head. The victim fell to the ground, but the thug kept beating on him with the cane and kicking him repeatedly, police said.

The suspects fled. The victim was not listed as having life threatening injuries, police said.

A motive for the attack was not immediately known.

Interesting Facts about Walking Canes

At first glance, walking canes may seem like ordinary, boring objects. However, even common objects like walking canes have fascinating facts that make them more than just walking aids.

Fashion Accessory

Canes used to be normal for every man to carry, not just those who needed help walking. They came in all sorts of designs and were made of different woods and metals. The Stick Man website states that they were even symbols of authority and “an indication of the owner’s wealth and status.”

Weapon

Besides being fashionable, walking canes were also sometimes weapons. Since they were normal for any man to carry around, it was a simple place to hide a weapon. Either they were made of material heavy enough to hurt someone or they concealed swords or guns inside, the Literary Liaisons website states.

Word Origin

The origin of the word “cane” is thought to trace back to the Middle East. The Word Focus website states that “the word for reed in the Hebrew, Arabic, and Egyptian languages was ‘kaneh.'” The term was adopted into Greek, Latin and other European languages, changing over time until it become the English “cane.”

Marital Arts

Even though walking canes today are used primarily as walking aids, there are also people who use it as a martial arts weapon. Mark Shuey Sr., owner of Cane Masters, asked, “Why should people who need to use a cane in their everyday lives feel like a target? Why not empower them with the knowledge of how to use a cane for self-defense and exercise?” Now he teaches and sells instructional videos for martial arts cane use.

Cane versus Stick

A walking cane and a walking stick are the same thing. Walking Cane World clears up the difference, saying that “the term walking stick comes from Europe and the term walking cane comes from the U.S.A.”
