    In Guam You Have To Register Yourself As A Deadly Weapon

    Or even a black belt in Aikido or Thai Chi? Belts and styles mean nothing. It is the individual and their skill level that matter.

    The Equalizer - What role do weapons serve?

    I would agree with the last statment. Not sure if I like the baton twirling comparison though! Lol!

    Situational Awareness

    It just a habit that helps you see what's going on around you. No one thing is the golden key to situational awareness. They just help. You know what's even better? Keep your face out of your freak'n phone in public. As for everyone having their backs to the wall being awkward... It'll never...

    They are on the channel and have the logo because they are taught by the same instructor and in the same school as the other course. They are optional free courses for my students that have interests in those weapons. And tgere is weapons training in the combatives course, but traditional...

    The Equalizer - What role do weapons serve?

    I am a practitioner of American Nunchaku as found by Grandmaster Burke. The Nunchuck I teach is not part of the Total Combatives curriculum, but is the curriculum of the American Nunchaku style. I do agree that the techniques are for flow and not for fighting. I teach rope dart and Nunchucks...

    The Equalizer - What role do weapons serve?

    I don't represent myself as someone who can teach those weapons. I DO teach Nunchaku and rope dart. I do not teach anything else. If you paid attention to the YouTube series or why the video is in the article, you will notice that I am merely taking about the basic weapons out there. I have...

    The Equalizer - What role do weapons serve?

    As for the twirling... I have engaged in sword sparring, knife sparring, staff sparring, and a couple of the other weapins, but I've never been good at shadow fencing. Not having anyone to exchange blows with I simply twirled them around. It's a sorry excuse I know. I'd love to study...

    What style would you add to your training?

    I'm kind of interested in capoeria as well. Not from the perspective of improving my balence and fall recovery. I think it would be kind of fun too.

    What style would you add to your training?

    You're missing the fun!:) This is a what if question. What if you couldn't. Hypothetically. If the only option was something else?

    What style would you add to your training?

    Q #1 San Soo kung fu or Judo. Lean more towards San Soo because my dad and grandfather trained in that style back when my dad was a kid. Q #2 Tai chi For those who are going to comment that, "Tai chi isn't even a martial art" I would answer, "fine then Aikido"

    What style would you add to your training?

    Two questions; If you could learn any style through private instruction without the restrictions of availability, time, or cost what would it be? (Not a style you already practice) What is the martial art that interests you the the least? (Don't take offense on anyone's answer!):p

    Nice! I've been increasingly interested in Budo over the last year, but their is no teachers near me. What resources would you recommend to someone in my position who would like to experience Budo training but has a hard time finding an instructor?

    So what systems do you study if you don't mind me asking? I've noticed that you share a lot of helpful insights on here but I can't tell what you style(s) are just from that.

    The Equalizer - What role do weapons serve?

    MT yes. Considering the fact that I am not teaching Kali, BJJ or Krav Maga, I not not need to be instructor level in those to teach hand to hand combat. I do borrow form the styles yes. But I am not pretending to be a master of those systems and giving out rank in those systems. I think they...

    The Equalizer - What role do weapons serve?

    Ok, understood. For hand to hand I have trained in both ITF and Wtf Taekwondo, Shotokan and Kanzen Karate, and Muay Thai. I've also train in hand to hand techniques from Kali. As for ground fighting it's all Jui jitsu and Krav Maga.

    The Equalizer - What role do weapons serve?

    Under strict teachers and guidelines. For instance in Taekwondo I studied under a 5 dan and spent years in diligent training. That I also hold "official" rank. Tgat is what I would classify as "official study" or formsl training. What I would not classify as such would be my training in Kali...
