The Cane-Ja Do system is for students who are not interested in earning belt ranks but are interested in learning tactical combat techniques with the cane as the major tool, however empty handed techniques are taught as well. In this system students will not earn belts as they advance. Below are the requirements for each level of achievement.
Like the American Cane System there are 8 levels of advancement. To view the requirements for each level please follow the links below:
Note: We understand that there are many adults who use the cane to assist with physical issues, and as such will not be able to perform all the techniques that are incorporated in the system. The important task is to learn to use those aspects of the cane that are the most beneficial to your own personal style, and to pass along the advantages of the cane to others. Additionally, we will work with you to create appropriate modifications to meet your specific fitness and self-defense needs. As the Cane Masters System and I Cane Do Program evolve and grow, we will be adding new curriculum items from time to time. We understand that most students have a wealth of experience and as such we are open to your constructive thoughts, feedback and criticism.
