Exactly. The only thing we have any control over is ourselves. That's really the whole point of MA to me. By increasing my self control, and my abilities, I increase the odds of interacting with my environment succesfully.

Oh btw, that kama/nunchaku death actually happened. I'm not kidding, the guy actually tried to merge the kama and Nunchaku together. When he tried to swing it around, one of the blades caught into his lower back and when he yanked it, it came up across his back, slicing through the spinal cord.

Of course I only heard about this and cannot verify with my own eyes that it is true. But it sounds very plausible to me as this guy was probably untrained and wanted to look like the guys in the movies. Also he was probably rather stupid.

Ender, it sounds like an urban myth. Where did you hear about it?

This student is truly wise. You idiots, it doesn't matter what weapon you use.You are still trying to hurt someone aren't you? The only reason you say this is because you have to have more skill & be at a closer range then you would with a gun. I respect the skill and masters of the sword because it takes more time, but a weapon will always be meant to hurt someone. A coward is still a coward if he uses a gun,or sword because a sword is not alive it has no feelings or pride whoever told you otherwise is foolish. I do not like the fact that peolple recuire barely any talent to shoot a gun, but it does make the job faster. The student before me is very wise & I respect that, and you should also, no more nonsense of honor.

I agree with both sides, but my idea of guns and bombs are more distructive than that of the older weapons. I beleive that all weapons are dangerous and should be handled by those who are older and not the foolish. Just think of this, if down the road we develop even more deadlier weapons then that of the atomic or chemical bombs, we distroy all of the resorces that we need. That we are destined to protect. What happens then? Do you still agree that we resort to just guns and bombs. I think that the older weapons are a way of not hurting our natural resorces.But then these days are getting more modern and more intelligent than we can imagine so what is the difference. My answer will not make a difference any ways so go ahead and disapprove of me.

for those of you that think gun are better that swords or other wepons you are wrong dead wrong because if you can shoot 300 yards one what are you goin to do when someone is behind you with a knife and cut you down there will come to a time when guns are no longer goin to work WE WILL HAVE TO GO BACK TO THE OLD WAYS becaase no matter how thick your kevlar is a sword will penatrate it.

grimmm, i totally agree with you. guns are more deadly than that of a sword. But this world will keep on making even more deadlier weapons. i wish it were so that the world would turn to swords and older weapons. But i highly doubt that it will happen.

Rieko, grimmmm actually stated that guns WEREN'T (yes, your correct, that is NOT a proper word) more powerful than old weapons, just used differently.

I don't think it is a matter of how deadly a weapon is but how is using it like a sword anyone can stab someone in the back with a sword by can you defend yourself with that same sword againist someone who knows how to use a sword no, but with a gun it is pray and spray hopping you hit something you don't have that with a sword or other weapon.
