Cane and Umbrella Defense Demo

In this short, three-part video series, Florine Michelin, Daniel Jaquet, & Thomas Schmutziger present an excellent demonstration of late 19th Century and early Twentieth Century street defense with cane and umbrella. Their presentation, both humorous and academic, occurred at Dreynevent, 2011 in Vienna.

A variety of techniques (from Du Bois to Barton-Wright) and scenarios are demonstrated at normal speed, then some actions are repeated slowly for clarification. Included are a defense for garroting  and multiple means for a lady’s defense on the street. These three videos are courtesy YouTube user tossetoke.
