think he's talking about the ceremonial version of it. one of the main differences I remember between ceremonial and combat is that in combat there's not a whole lot of attacks that require balancing on your back

The direct reply was trolling, that's why it was silly. It was in response to the idea that judo was a practical combat art above others.
I also clearly said in my post that there are styles that teach disarming properly. I just don't think that they are common, and it isn't practiced as much as other things. How confident are you disarming a knife? What about if the knife is hidden before the fight starts? These are the things that, in my experience, take traditional martial artists by surprise. I also advocate that you not fight in that situation. The risk is too great. Also no I don't think the entire world is armed, but the bad part of it commonly is. It's why I say later, in the more serious part of my post, that it is better to avoid a fight, because it's not worth the risk. You may feel confident disarming if some idiot pulls a knife on you, but you have a much greater chance to end up dead than the man who talks or runs and has a proper response as a backup.

The fuck? Did they miss the part where the slaves used it to fuck people up? I mean I know there's different versions but you cant write off an entire style because one seems more showy than the others.

I did Arnis for a little. It's a Filipino martial art that consists of swinging two sticks.
In retrospect, it was a waste of my fucking time. Spent 6 months doing it.

Why would you say that? Just curious, as I'm looking to put time into a weapon-based martial art. I just don't know where to start, as there's no schools around here.

Don't get me wrong man. Arnis is amazing.
Maybe it was how I learned and who I was taught by. It was a while back when I was still living in the Philippines, and I was psyched for the sole reason that I was learning a "martial art", or better yet a martial art of my "motherland".
I went to class everyday thinking I'd learn something new. All we did was wave our fucking sticks around and slo-mo scenario our way through fights. We never learned any "new" way to weave that shit. After 5 days of 3 hour sessions, we practically lesrned everything we needed to know.
Then it was just watching other people simulate shit like a play for the rest of the time I was there. I was never aable to really incorporate what I had learned. It made it seem like a waste of time.
There's only so many ways you can literally shake a stick at someone rofl. Maybe I didn't like how limited it felt.
Maybe I was there because I didn't have a skateboard for 6 months :(
Go and get into martial arts man. Make sure you read about the schools and their programs first.

I was able to watch that now. I am not saying he wouldn't beat me to pulp, because I've never fought him, but I noticed some things, objectively speaking if I was planning on fighting him:
He telegraphs many of his attacks. I can see his shoulders and/or body stiffen up before many of his attacks. Besides that I can see his whole body moving before the attack comes out, such as a punch, so I should be able to feel it coming before hand.
My first instinct would be to try to get as close to him as possible. It seems he's training in striking attacks and I would want to attack him with grappling and/or wrestling type attacks. I would test that of course. But of course this is an unknown and I shouldn't be surprised if he's skilled.
He looks like a fencer, if I were to get into a 'striking' battle I'd try patient lateral movement and in close fighting (think Eskrima).
Grain of salt, he's demonstrating... I've just never though it practical to rely on strikes when someone sneaks up on you with an amateur choke hold. What if the guy is almost twice my size?

There ARE some beautiful and effective Asian martial arts. But you see - my style teaches some very important lessons.
Honor doesn't mean shit, I'm going to kick you in the balls and shoot your face. Then run away before I have to do the same to your friends who are most likely rethinking their life choices as criminals and voiding their bowels.

I don't know what your beliefs are, but what I do know is that if a criminal invades my home to take my life or anyone I greatly care about, I will not allow it. When a criminal threatens me or someone I care about with deadly force, your concepts, whether they be honor, laws, rules, etc, are meaningless.

Whatever, I'll ask anyway.
I want to know what are some good weights. For now, I train with 100lbs:
1 40lb vest
2 6lb thigh weights
2 20lb ankle weights
2 4lb wrist weights
The vest ain't bad, but the other parts don't hold on and fly off.
Anyone got any good recommendations for some good ones? My equipment is made by All Pro by the way. I need something that won't restrict my movement much by the way.
