Yes, you can carry a gun or a knife, but there are places you can’t bring those.  We love the elegance that an everyday item such as a cane or a necklace that you have right at hand can be used to help keep you safe in a bad situation. These are items that you can have with you at any time, all the time.

The BadAss Cane

We offer the BadAss Cane and the Training Cane.  The BadAss Cane is a strong, 36 inch long, 3/4 inch thick hickory cane that’s been modified for better use as a weapon.  The crook has been cut down, the hand grip has been extended, and a heavyweight ferrule is placed on the bottom.  It’s available in four different stains to suit your styling tastes. There is nothing that will keep this cane from going through metal detectors or keep it from qualifying as a necessary disabled appliance.
The Training Cane is a stripped down version of the same strong, 36 inch long, 3/4 inch thick hickory cane with a trimmed down crook.  You probably won’t find a tougher, more reasonable cane on the web.

How do I measure the correct cane length?

Generally speaking, proper cane length is about one half of the person’s height while wearing shoes.

To measure the proper lengthfor your cane, take the measurement from the second crease in your wrist to the floor on the side you will be using the cane.  Remember to stand as you usually do, relax, and let your arms hang at your sides with a natural bend in your elbow. Wear the shoes you normally wear when you take the measurement.  If you don’t have someone to help measure you, use a yard stick and where the second crease of your wrist hits the yardstick is the length you will need.  If you do have a condition that prevents you from standing up straight, measure the distance from the crease of your wrist to the floor in the position that you walk.

Our goal is to bring the benefits of Aikido, Tai Chi, cane, meditation, and other esoteric arts to ever larger communities. When most people think about martial arts they’re distracted by the violent and competitive aspects, but underneath the flash and conflict is a core of compassion, discipline, respect, and honor. We work really hard to use these principles to bring Joy and new skills to anyone who needs them.

Angus provides all counseling free of charge and works with vets dealing with PTSD, kids at risk, people rehabilitating from injury or disease to reestablish a more nonconfrontational relationship with their body, and people who want to refocus and live with a more positive way.

Our programs include Developing a Personal Practice and Somatic Integrity. We’ll teach just about anywhere although the bulk of our programs are currently based in Las Vegas, NV. If you want to book one of our programs, contact us to schedule or for more information, contact us!

Angus, I wanted to thank you for your product and your decision to share your knowledge. Everyone in your company is very professional and helpful. I am a Private Security Contractor. And I do work all over the World. I recently had to have back surgery and found myself in need of a cane for a few months.  I am used to close quarter combat and lethal engagements. I have never had to find a use for a cane before now. After finding your literature and your product I have made my 41″ cane a permanent part of my “unarmed” attire. . My discipline of choice is Krav Maga and I Love the way I have been able to incorporate this tool into my style. Your no nonsense way of teaching struck a chord with me. And I tell everyone I talk to about your book, your philosophy and your product! I plan on taking your product into many, many story telling opportunities. Keep up your work and always watch your 6!  ~ Scott


EVERY day at work I am using the language, thoughts and actions that I have embraced as a way of life…I will always be available to attest to the positive work and relationships that I have formed with Angus and Sharon. – Jason


I have to tell you I am loving the book I bought from Angus.  I have to buy the others when I have the extra.  I laughed so hard while reading them I had people looking at me like I was nuts.  I could hear him talking to me while reading the book.  LOVE IT! ~ Bonnie


Just the thing for the thinking person. I have carried a cane for security for 20 years and this book has shown me quite a few new tricks. Just the tips on being more aware of everything around you should help everyone. Get a cane, get the book, be secure. – J.H.
