TRANSLATED] MATTHEW LYNCH con LA CANNE: J. Charlemont's defensive cane method (English Edition)
The companion volume to La Boxe Française, La Canne offers Charlemont's rough and ready guide to the use of a cane as a serious weapon of self defense. Derived from the techniques of saber fencing, La Canne is a purely European stick fighting system which will surprise any curious dabbler who takes up a solidly made cane and delivers a few good looping whacks to a heavy bag or tree with it. The fighting cane will knock a man senseless, shatter a knee, forearm, or wrist, splinter a finger and bust a rib or three with relative ease. In 1899 canes were ubiquitous, an essential accessory for every gentlemen that was often opted for by ladies as well. While many a sly fellow had a rapier hidden in his cane, Charlemont's system made this unnecessary, as a skilled stick fighter could put a knife wielding robber away with the power of Newtonian physics and a piece of polished hardwood. Whether or not canes make a comeback as an everyday fashion statement remains to be seen, but there is certainly nothing wrong with the average citizen carrying one for style, support, and something to point at stuff with.
