    So you are or were a police officer? Would your joint locks and pressure points and control hold without batons have worked as well? In the first video he is talking about grappling with a baton and how a person does not get much advantage with a baton. Like they would not be able to do a hold with a baton that they could not do without a baton.

    So you know better? Ok, keep doing what you are doing. Send me a message and let me know how you are doing when you are typing with your nose.

    Best of luck to you.

    As my old scuba instructor used to say, you give them a book and they just eat the pages...

    I take it you don't use speech-to-text? I use that all the time.

    You might want to stop that five knuckle shuffle with one of these.

    I unfortunately cannot see your video. I can tell you I carried a nightstick as an MP in the Marine Corps. If I hit you with it, you would do more than say ow. You could say it is ineffective, but the many chowerheads I was forced to subdue with it would probably argue otherwise. But hey, lots of people I apprehended would later claim they beat me up. Funny how they ended up in handcuffs anyway though, huh?

    :facepalm: Take it from someone that has arthritis in the knees and spine...you have no idea what you are wishing for. There are mornings I can barely move and walking down or up stairs is misery. Go ask some of the older guys that used to bang on a makiwara for years on end if they would trade hard knuckles for the ability to hold a fork to feed themselves.
