ok what's the link to this famous goat kata, I want to check it out...

I'd like to see you using Gandalf [one of our goats] for this, he is rather big & heavy and has enormous horns which in themselves are very good weapons! I know, I've been on the receiving end of them more often than not...

I don't really have a website. I was just kinda poking fun at some other threads.

The goat that was used in my previous post was pretty large as well.

Just goes to show that when a parent is protecting a child it's anything goes!

Horrible, awful, ancient MA movie called "To kill the golden goose" featuring Ed Parker and Bong Soo Han.

Did have one cool scene where EP was sitting at a dinner table, 2 thugs come up to him with ill intentions. He takes his (china, not paper ) dinner plate, breaks it in half on the edge of the table and jams it in the throat of one of the guys.

I forget why he didn't use knife/fork.

Improvised weopons don't have to be heavy... a well placed (over the eye brow) slash with a credit card is going to cut you open. Anything thrown at an attackers face my not hurt them but could make them flinch giving you that little advantage to get the upper hand. Pocket full of change, keys, the brim of a hat pushed straight on into the forhead gives a pretty nice jolt believ it or not. Just got to use yur imagination or make do with what you got.

MattJ: Where did you happen to see that movie? I've been trying to find ones Mr. Parker was in, as I study AKK.


P.S. Maybe he used the broken plate because the edge was longer than a dinner knife blade, leaving less margin of error in targeting. Not that I would question Mr. Parker's ability to hit whatever he was aiming at. Maybe it was a director's thing, just to be different.

over the past couple of weeks I've been away experimenting with "self-defense" techniques taught by some guy who's been in the army a while as well as having studied quite a few years of Karate, here in Belgium.. It wasn't great, except he insisted we do a couple of days on improvised weaponry.. it was pretty standard stuff, we rolled newspapers up to act like Bo staffs, learning how to "correctly" throw a CD.. that kinda thing... bigtime mcdojo, but I signed up a while back in a hurry when I realised I didn't have any training planned for the summer.. it provided a good workout... Anyhow, think of throwing gravel in the face, or anything that comes to hand... in one case, a guy couldn't think of anything, and in the outside sparring, a guy ripped leaves off a nearby tree, and while running mashed them into a ball, and threw them back in the guys face... not painful in any way, but the guy was surprised and actually started laughing... now my question is... other than this bit of comedy, did I waste the 100 euros I spent on these 2 weeks? my answer to you is: yes, unless you think that telling a good joke might defuse a serious situation....

Pool Cue
Ash Tray

Curious how so many people think of pool cues. Personally, I'd choose those 16 round ivory projectiles that come with it.

I had this in mind when I started the thread:

If some one came in right now, what could you utilize to tip the odds in your favor?

For that matter, what if it happened on the job, exiting your car, or during any other normal day/night activity?

if someone came in right now, there are scissors, a screwdriver, a stapler, and various heavy objects i can throw, plus i can use the mouse as a kind of weighted chain type thing. Also, several discs that can be thrown.
