    Help me choose a self defense walking cane

    Nice looking canes @Alan0354 I do not know the specific weight you are wanting to know, sorry. I think by far the more important metric is grip comfort. Find a cane that fits length wise for you and feels good to your hand, then get two of them. One to train with and one for the town...

    Seeking training partner PNW U.S.A. For ICSA distance curriculum

    What nonfiction book are you currently reading?

    Dan is a good guy. Was able to train with him a bit during his Systema exploration. He is an experienced martial artist and gymnast. I enjoy his books and liked the movie. He had a cameo in the movie. Enjoy the read. Regards Brian King

    The Value of training with odd-ball weapons

    @geezer, two of the cell phone classes we sometimes ran that you might adapt to your use. The students always appreciated both.
