In addition to the Kobudo curriculum, Hoshin Dojo implements cane based self-defense techniques and tactics. The techniques that we train are a combination of those found in Mugai-Ryu Iaihyodo, the Cane Masters program, and adaptations of Kobudo based weapons.
The value of cane training is simple. As we get older and lose our physicality, a cane can provide us with the ability to defend ourselves against a larger, stronger aggressor. In addition to its effectiveness, the cane is a versatile weapon of self-defense. Officially considered a medical device, the cane can be taken places that even a legally concealed gun cannot.
Hoshin Dojo is affiliated with the American Cane System. For more information, please visit CaneMasters.com
