As stated on the Cane Masters page on this website, a governing body is now being formed regarding all aspects of the Cane in the United Kingdom.
This page will contain all information regarding the Cane.
Where Canes can be bought, listing of Cane masters in the UK, Listing of Cane Dojos and websites, Seminaries and coaching Courses infact anything to do with the cane will eventually be found here.
For those who are interested, I will eventually be adding a newsletter section to this page and if anyone would like either one sent to their Email box, or, sent to their home please contact me by phone or Email me and I will put you on the mailing list.
It is a very exciting time as far as the Cane is concerned as this venture has not been tried before in this manner, be a part of it....
From now on, orders for the UK for Canemasters product can be found on their website either by contacting Master, Chris Bird, or Robin Dawkins. For ease of navigation I will add the link below: it can be found on the Dojo information page as well.
I personally wish them both the best of luck for the future and look forward to purchasing cane products from them.
My primary responsability for the Cane in the UK is for people who have disabilities who would like advice on the subject of the Cane.
I also, teach the Cane system designed around the Aikido Weapons Sylabus for the Cane and The exercise system.
I have been very busy throughout the last few months traveling to London and Kent area promoting the Cane and Canemasters.
There has been imense interest shown and I hope within the next year or so, to develop the cane in the above areas and establish the Cane in the UK.
