    Elderly use canes for self-defence



    A martial arts expert has set up special walking stick self-defence classes for pensioners.
    Kevin Garwood, 58, of Gorleston, near Great Yarmouth, is showing them how to use their walking sticks to be more confident.
    And his lessons have already paid off after an old woman fought off two muggers, reports the Daily Mail.
    Mr Garwood currently teaches three walking stick self-defence classes a week and aims to start more sessions this year.
    He said: "What I am not trying to do is make grey-haired ninjas or have people twitching and always looking over their shoulders. What it does is give them tremendous confidence."
    Classes begin with a warm-up, focusing on gentle movements of the hands, wrists, arms and bodies and going on to turning and twirling the stick.
    Pupils practice sets of movements and learn simple strangleholds, arm locks and throws, using their walking sticks.
    "We don't teach lots of complicated techniques. It's basic stuff, stuff you can remember," said Kevin.
    And there have been definite successes including an elderly woman in Yarmouth who fought off two yobs who grabbed her arm and her handbag.
    "She went to the police station because she was worried about having hurt the boys," said Kevin.

    but the show remains a massive success with people of all ages"
