Cane

We’ve been using weapons ever since our earliest ancestors were running around in a loincloth and, in a moment of inspiration, grabbed a tree branch to hit some dude over the head. Almost every country’s indigenous martial art includes some kind of stick work. If it works for all of them it’s probably going to work for you too. The cane is a qualified appliance under the Americans with Disabilities Act. This makes it the perfect weapon to be carried anytime, anyplace in our society. Furthermore, weapons training makes a great complement to any practice.
