    I'm looking at doing a bit of international travel in the future, and in the interest of having something handy that doesn't have to be registered or require a license to own, I ordered one of these:

    [ame=""] Cold Steel African Walking Stick, 37-Inch: Sports & Outdoors[/ame]

    I spoke with coach about it and he said it's rather similar to the stick and sword techniques we've worked, and of course I'll take it to class to work with, but I also thought it couldn't hurt to see if any here know good videos applicable to this, so I'd have something to review at home. Thanks! :)

    I had one of those sticks when I was stateside.. Used it at a tongkat (silat stick) seminar, only thing is when you make contact, you felt the reverberation all the way down to your toes.. It was heavy and bulky, not made for every day use plus it will most definitely draw attention to you when you travel due to the construction and the skull crusher ball at the top of the stick..

    I would suggest that you get a regular drug store walking stick or even a cane.. Cold steel has a regular wooden walking stick which would be more Politically correct when traveling.. Or you can order one of their blackthorn/shillelagh walking sticks.. It is made out of the same composite material as the african walking stick yet it is more suitable for travel.. Just my opinion

    I love the African Stick, (although i agree it is more of a cudgel) but if i had to carry one on a day to day basis it would be the city stick

    @kuntaoer: Hmm, you make a good point. Attn as in people thinking I'm eccentric, or as in the police pulling me over cuz I've got a darn big stick?

    @Hannibal: The city stick does look very nice, I just can't find one under 60 bucks. :-/

    If I were to look into a more normal cane, what's something that would look stylish (perhaps I'm vain :p), hold up fairly well, and preferably be around/no more than 30 bucks?
