I'm looking for someone that teaches "cane" self-defense.

Any leads?

Any interest?

I walk with a cane but carry a .45 for defense

I carry a gun as well. And I work at refining my shooting skills all the time.

However, that cane is not only in my hand and ready for action at all times it can go places the gun cannot, like airplanes, schools and courtrooms.

What is your mobility like? I ask because most places that teach self defense are expecting you to be able to do some karate type moves.

There are some places that offer krav maga which is really hand to hand, but they will also do general self defense.

The whole of Aikido focuses heavily on balance, timing and much more. Folks who cannot do all of the involved work due to physical issues the weapons part of the discipline uses sticks and staffs.

Aikido Weapons Techniques: The Wooden Sword, Stick and Knife of Aikido

On Amazon. The book starts slow but gets better as you go.
