Re: Unbreakable combat cane and walking stick? Which one?
I was thinking the same thing myself. He keeps posting nearly identical threads week after week that basically fall into two categories.

I don't think he is taking classes. I think he might be watching DVDs, but that's not at all the same thing.
News flash Kip, a trained fighter will always see a stick as a weapon no matter what shape it is or who's carrying it. A trained fighter will recognize it immediately, because he's looking for something to hit you with, and you happen to be holding something right there. If you bring a stick to a self defense situation and you have no training and no concept of reality, your opponent will simply take it away and shove it up your ass. Same with a sword. Same with a gun.
Some teenage kids tried to rob one of the pizza places I used to work at with a rifle one day. They came in with masks on and started shouting and pointing it at people, and the rough men who worked their laughed in their faces and told them to go home before they got their own rifle shoved up their asses. Carrying a weapon doesn't make you a bad ass. Knowing how to use one might, but that requires the serious study I don't believe you are engaging in.
Good luck to Kip. But to me he sounds like a delusional fan boy or a deliberate troll. Who cares what stick he buys off the internet? He's just going to repost this thread next week all over again.
Just keep swimming. Just keep swimming.
