Level 4 prepares the student for the advanced material and concepts that exist at levels 5-8. The emphasis for quality in the material at levels 1-3 continues, and 13 new self-defense techniques are added (CTs 21-33) which include throws, defenses against kicks, punches, grabs, attacks from behind, and attempts to take your cane.
To better develop cane control and flow, new grips and shifting between grips are explained in detail. New empty-hand techniques, stances, cane blocks, and cane strikes are presented, expanding the student’s fundamental knowledge. The single-handed and double-handed partner 8-point partner drill sets (cane-against-cane) are completed.
