About Self Defense Empowerment Coach Doc Stull

Richard “Doc” Stull is an Advanced Instructor in American Cane Self Defense (ACSD), and a direct student of ACSD  Founder Grandmaster Joe Robaina.

His primary focus is Cane Flow, the free-form rhythmic expression of  ACSD training principles for neuro-muscular and proprioceptive development/brain training and functional fitness.  Although CaneFlow movements (both Cane and Empty Hand) were originally designed for self-protection, Cane Flow is not a martial art and is not competitive.  CaneFlow as an art form shares commonalities with music, dance, and juggling.
