The American Cane System is a traditional martial art style founded by Grandmaster Mark Shuey, Sr. that uses a cane to strengthen individuals mentally, physically, and emotionally. Grandmaster Shuey is the head of the Cane Masters International Association and holds advanced black belt ranks in Hapkido (7th Dan), Tang Soo Do (6th Dan), and Tae Kwon Do (8th Dan). The American Cane System has 8 levels from white belt up to first degree black belt, followed by ten levels of black belt, including the title of Cane Master. This instructional DVD series was created as a means of documenting the core of fundamental information required to test for each level up to first degree black belt. While intended for American Cane System student, this series is beneficial for anyone wishing to learn more about the versatility of the cane as a tool for self-defense and exercise.
LEVEL 2 builds on the American Cane System student’s level one knowledge introducing the philosophy of the American Cane System and traditional martial arts concepts including style structure. New topics include training on a heavy bag with a cane and partner drills (blocking and striking cane-against-cane with a partner). The student will learn two new grips, one stance, punching with and without a cane, eight fundamental blocks, swing strikes, double-handed jabs, figure-8 swings and flow drills, six double-handed crooks strikes, crook strike combinations, and more. The exercise system adds new strength training sets including stretches to improve shoulder mobility and lower body stretches. The student’s self-defense technique repertoire expands to include four more techniques (CTs 4-7), which deal with punches and a bear hug, and an introduction to the 11 elements of self-defense. The DVD concludes with instruction in the required kata Reflection 2. The kata is presented at power and speed, and from Front, Side, and Back views at half-speed. The kata is then broken down into segments which clarify important subtleties and practical applications of the defensive scenarios. This DVD was professionally filmed and edited using three different cameras and documents the material required to test for orange belt.
