    What Was The Most Dangerous Situation In Your Life You’ve Ever Been Involved In?

    It would have to be this really bad car wreck that I was in where I was almost killed. There was nothing I could've done to handle it any better or worse since it was outside my control. The only way I survived was by just being extremely lucky.

    Asking The Same Questions Over And Over Again

    Yes Im aware of that option, however when I ask a question on a thread, even if it is directed to a specific member or members, I want it to be a public question with a public answer, that's why I will ask it on a thread and not in a PM. Also, PMs can be ignored. Threads can obviously be...

    Asking The Same Questions Over And Over Again

    Some people on this forum have claimed that I sometimes ask the same questions over and over again and have suggested that I simply look back in the thread for the answers. Well the reason why I might sometimes ask the same question is because Im not getting answers from the specific people I...

    Sword Performance

    Before I discuss my thoughts and opinions I want to see what other people think. So as of right now my motivation is to get other people's feedback on their thoughts and opinions.

    Advanced Sword Technique

    Partially Why would I want to do that? To see what people thought of the video and the techniques shown in it.

    I posted it just to get other people's feedback. Most everybody has said the video is bad and that the techniques are useless, any feedback is welcome.

    In Guam You Have To Register Yourself As A Deadly Weapon

    So anyway, even if you're in Guam if you end up hurting somebody in a physical confrontation what should be looked at is how badly you hurt them and the circumstances in which you hurt them, not whether or not you've got a martial arts background. And if you ask me that's how it should be done...

    If you want to develop good eye foot coordination I would recommend Hacky Sack.

    In Guam You Have To Register Yourself As A Deadly Weapon

    Apparently so, I don't know how they would view somebody who trains in an art that doesn't have belts or ranking systems.

    In Guam You Have To Register Yourself As A Deadly Weapon

    This is silly but its true, in Guam you have to register yourself as a deadly weapon if you're an expert in the martial arts. What they define as an expert is anybody who has "completed at least one level of training therein and shall have been issued a belt or other symbol showing proficiency...

    Physicians

    That depends on what kind of physician we're talking about. An eye doctor probably would not know about what parts of the body are more fragile than others, except for the eyes, but it doesn't take an eye doctor to know that the eyes are very fragile.

    Been a white belt for 5 years

    That's probably why you were a white belt for so long. If you want to promote you have to be consistent with coming to classes in most jiu jitsu schools.

    Been a white belt for 5 years

    You're not going to be a black belt if you have horrible skills, not in BJJ, at least I've never heard of any BJJ school that just hands out belts, BJJ schools are different from most other schools in that they take their belts very seriously.

    Been a white belt for 5 years

    Ten years is a bit long to be a white belt even for BJJ, were you training consistently for those 10 years?

    Been a white belt for 5 years

    In BJJ you usually progress slower through the belts than in other martial arts. I myself was a white belt for two years when I started BJJ. You start with a white belt and each time you get promoted you get a stripe on your belt or if you already got the maximum number of stripes which for the...

    Sticks are easy to come by

    Did the bar have pool tables as some bars do? If so you could grab a pool stick. Maybe in the parking lot and street where you've been attacked there was no stick like objects to use, aside from the tire iron you mentioned, but the point is that sticks are easier to find than most weapons...

    Sticks are easy to come by

    I know how to use a baseball bat to fight with without swinging it, that's something you learn if you train in stick fighting, you learn how to thrust, jab, poke, etc. using a stick. Stick fighting isn't just swinging. That's why I train in unarmed fighting first and foremost. But if Im able to...

    Sticks are easy to come by

    Alright, enjoyment is a common reason why people train with weapons, after all they're fun to train with. However, some people do train with weapons for the possibility of using them in self defense in which case sticks and knives would be the most practical. I train with weapons for that...
