    Best/Favorite modern martial arts movies

    The question "what are the best martial arts films" comes up fairly often, and we see more or less the same 10 or 20 great films often from the 70's and 80's.

    How do you find a new school?

    When you decide you want to train somewhere else (for whatever reason, moved, changed styles, whatever) how do you go about finding where to train? Obviously if you want to train in Tae Kwon Do you can just throw a rock and hit a couple of schools, but anything else is a little harder to find...

    Gun carrying man ends stabbing spree at Salt Lake grocery store

    This is an example of a defensive use of a firearm that doesn't get recorded as such because no shots were fired. A gun was used to stop the attacks, but no one was shot and the knife wielder has an extensive criminal record so don't expect to see this story in the national media...

    1 in 2000 earn their black belt - still true?

    Many, many, years ago I read an article in (I think) Black Belt that said only 1 in 2,000 people who start the martial arts continue with it until they earn a black belt. I have no idea if that was accurate back then, I know I've seen a lot of people start and drop out over the years. Does...
