Walk Softly but Parry with Your Walking Stick

Here’s and interesting video of a guy teaching older folk how to use their walking sticks as a weapon. Good idea! He teaches a few martial arts moves to ward off attackers. I always thought those things looked dangerous…except for the people who normally use them. If we could turn walking sticks into a fashion statement and get more people to carry them, we could reduce the crime rate by increasing the number of people ‘raising cain’.

Some thugs might think twice about kicking
Around elderly folk who are picking
Up skills in defense
Which provide a pretense,
So next time the thugs take the licking.
