Senior Citizens Cane Kung-Fu!

posted on April 28, 2009 by Catherine Mann

Since I write romantic suspense, I spend a lot of time researching weaponry. Add in the military angle in most of my books and I figured I had looked into just about everything. At least I thought so until my critique partner, Joanne Rock, told me about self-defense classes for senior citizens using their canes for protection. (BTW, I’m fairly certain she wasn’t telling me it’s time for me to start using a walker. 😉 Anyhow, I just had to look up more info on the subject once I got home. Here’s an article called “Cane-Fu Fighting.” The part about how a senior citizen stopped a home robbery in progress had me grinning big time. I think maybe I’ll invest in a cool cane after all!
