"I don't believe in different ways of fighting now. I mean, unless human beings have 3 arms and 3 legs, then we will have a different way of fighting. But basically we all have two arms and two legs so that is why I believe there should be only one way of fighting and that is no way."
Without further ado, let's check out the La Canne basics, shall we?
For my CaneFighters: Just a quick and dirty review of La Canne de Combat basics, as integrated at Team BAD.
If you know nothing of La Canne, I trust you were perceptive enough to notice the chambering prior to striking. Just a note, what Armando Basulto is demonstrating are the sporting aspects of La Canne, therefore, each strike is chambered. He says:
"...in the modern competitive sport of La Canne de Combat, all coups have to be chambered (correctly) to count."
Also, some earlier entries related to La Canne all by Craig Gemeiner:

Hope you can integrate some ideas of La Canne into your 'game.'
