The "King Kane" in Competition

From the Karate Institute of America 1980 and 1990 archives, Grandmaster Richard Andrew King competes with a cane. The cane, one of the most practical weapons in the contemporary world, is one of the standard weapons taught in the KIA’s Kiado-Ryu karate system.

Free videos of the cane in action, as well as other weapons, can be found by following the “Videos” link at King’s Karate.
