Using a "keep it practical" approach, veteran instructor Michael Janich has developed Martial Cane Concepts, a self-defense system specifically geared toward people with physical limitations. In other words, Martial Cane Concepts, is not for the expert stick fighter or martial artist; it's for the 65-year-old man or woman who may actually need to fight for his or her life against a punk prowling for an easy target.

After observing that traditional stick-fighting methods require physical training and abilities beyond the grasp of most people who carry a cane out of need, Janich came up with two uncomplicated sequences of techniques that can be applied to many different situations. This approach also makes the system perfect for the non-martial artist who's interested in protecting him- or herself.

Martial Cane Concepts teaches a self-defense system that is simple, easily learned and easily applied by those with limited physical strength, reflexes and speed.

To round out this instruction, Janich also includes material for people with more physical attributes who choose to carry a cane as the ultimate PC weapon.

There is no fancy stuff in Martial Cane Concepts – no throws, flips or locks. Just solid information on choosing the best cane for your needs and then using it to strike, thrust and block to protect yourself from harm.
Michael D. Janich is a lifelong student of the martial arts with instructor's credentials in the American Self-Protection (ASP) system, Filipino Serrada Eskrima and the Natural Spirit system of Arnis. He is also the founder of the Martial Blade Concepts (MBC) and Counter-Blade Craft (CBC) systems of edged-weapon self-defense.
