Thomas Klüh – Sifu SNAKE CRANE WING CHUN
When I was younger, I learned Judo, Karate and Kokishin Ryu (stick fighting with a stick that is very similar to the Safety Umbrella). In 1991, I gained interest in the Chinese martial art Wing Chun. Since March 2016, I am the official representative of the SNAKE CRANE WING CHUN ATHLETIC ASSOCIATION GERMANY. SNAKE CRANE WING CHUN is a highly effective self-defense system. Its founding has been traced to the beginnings of Wing Chun.
In our system, we train weaponless self-defense, but also weapon fighting with traditional weapons as well as everyday items that we use as a weapon.
This Safety Umbrella is very similar to our short pole and it is easily integrated in our SNAKE CRANE WING CHUN system.
In my opinion, the Safety Umbrella is the best “everyday weapon” that I have yet seen. It is ideal for long and short distances as a poke AND hitting weapon. The hook handle can also be used as a hook weapon.
During my own testing, I was most impressed by the robustness of this umbrella. Even though we gave it a ruthless beating, we were still able to say it looked “like new”.
I congratulate Mr Spannbauer and his team.
