While intended for American Cane System student; this series is beneficial for anyone wishing to learn more about the versatility of the cane as a tool for self-defense and exercise. LEVEL 5 continues the American Cane System student's training with a focus toward self-defense; teaching 14 new techniques (CTs 34-47); which involves more complex joint locks and counters. Grandmaster Shuey discusses representing the style; including through tournament competition and Grandmaster Crandall presents advanced concepts regarding tradition.
