Cane Fighting : Tanjojutsu.

Here is a short footage of a demonstration of Tanjojutsu by Donn F. Draeger - I don't know the name of his opponent. 

The Tanjo (短棒) - or Tambo - is a short hardwood staff - different styles use different length. 

Very sharp, to the point. The way things should be.


Donn Draeger (1922 – 1982) was an internationally-known teacher and practitioner of Japanese martial arts. He served in the United States Marine Corps from 1943 to 1956. He was the author of several important books on Asian martialarts, and was a pioneer of international judo in the United States and Japan.
